Apples - Painting By Cyberkitty

'Apples' - Painting By Cyberkitty

I heard that painting is a good relaxation technique, so I thought I'd try my hand at something I used to win prizes at years ago. I took out my ancient box of Camel watercolours, a few unused makeup brushes and an A4 sheet of paper from my printer and got to work. Here is the result -

'Apples' - 2007

We are born believing. A man bears beliefs as a tree bears apples.” Ralph Waldo Emerson. (American poet and writer)

Its been almost ten years since I last put paint to paper. I did feel calm and peaceful while working with the brush and hope to try it again next weekend too.

Do you have a weekend hobby ?

    Lord Jim - I wanted to add a living thing to the painting so I added the birds. They are the easiest to draw.

    Asha - Are you in India ??

  7. Good one!

    I doodle sometimes during boring meetings at work.

    The weekend hobby is blogging, these days.


  8. That was a good one! (to say trying after 10 years). I have also picked up my forgotten hobby of sketching while travelling. Painting is one of those which is a very good relaxation. For the time being, I do not have any weekend hobby. Meeting my family in the weekend has become a hobby now! LOL. You will understand if you have read my recent posts.
