Sable round brushes, colours and paper:
n.4 Rhodonite Genuine (unused)
n.8 Burnt Umber
n.10 Lapis Lazuli Genuine
Watercolour paper NOT 280gsm 38 x 28cm

additional exercise using all the above materials:


n.4 keeping God in mind always,
Dawn to daybreak, no
God paints the world in flower words, no
God’s loving light shines out
lines, like yesterday perhaps
but in Rhodonite Genuine representing artful beauty
which is a little bit artificial, but genuine so this is a
true image perhaps
not straight lines
like the pink loop representing breast cancer, no
but not straight lines
wavy lines, no
curved lines, part of a loop perhaps

n.8 treasuring that which is closest
detail perhaps
galaxies, no
glow, no
comforts, forts perhaps
upright lines, not shapes
but this is n.8
quite large lines perhaps
in Burnt Umber, shadow
like the remains after a fire, no
shadow like protection from the sun perhaps

no comforts in n.8
oceans of light perhaps
in Burnt Umber, so very light, perhaps
triangles perhaps

n.10 value everything but not too much
back with n.10
this the comfort perhaps
the lines in Umber being but the shadow of it
giving the shape of the comfort perhaps
like a reflection in water being still visible even where the rest of the painting is faded perhaps, no
but forts perhaps
upright shapes, no
upright lines perhaps in n.10 very wide lines
in Lapis Lazuli Genuine representing Divine intervention
somehow coming from the sky perhaps
downward uprights

curved lines in Pink
triangles of light in Umber, like shadows of the structures in Lapis Lazuli
structures are upright lines in Blue, but upside down
