Muses from the artistic world of Sonia Mocnik

Bee in the moment

enjoying time to paint as classes were completed March 7th.  That same evening was the opening at Caffe Mira with fun entertainment and a cozy atmosphere.  Really appreciated all the people that attended!

since then it’s already more than a week since writting my to do list, but haven’t been able to tackle the new projects that i’ve Wanted to.  I have some 20x16 cherry blossom watercolours that have been driving me a little mad.  When I look at them, I am frustrated by my background colour.  I had added too much tonal grey and found the fresh ‘pinks’ are just not remaining - it’s looking a little too grey for me.  Two rounds of trying this and still not what I was expecting.  Time to try something else to break the cycle. I even reset the entirepainting to get a softer image, still not what I was expecting.

now with the warmth and sun appearing- need to get some time outside and capture the return of spring!
