Nina's sketchbook with Lindsay's Leaves


Ⓒ Lindsay Olson mixed media on CP watercolour paper

Nina's Flying Picture's Sketchbook is here in Tuscany. I've been feasting on it for the last couple of days and getting rather stressed because I don't want to add something that will let down the stunning standard of work already done by Nina Johansson, Glen Heath, Vivien Blackburn, Ronell van Wyk and Lindsay Olson. It is worth going to the Flying Pictures Blog to see all the beautiful painting already posted from this particular book in our sketchbook exchange.

Nina's theme is Polychromatic Behaviour and it has inspired work of the most glorious colours. Lindsay's multi media painting of Cambria Leaves knocked my socks off and I'm sure anything I put beside it is going to look 'faded' by comparison.

I've got lots of juicy colours on my desk - if I can just squeeze them.....

Robyn - no fears!!! you'll do something gorgeous

My classes loved your olive grove - I showed the book to them this week

Vivien, you really made my day showing your class my olive grove :) When I first started loving your work on Wetcanvas and later on your blog, I could never have imagined that happening. Of course I'm in great company in that sketchbook!

But I still haven't managed to do anything gorgeous in Nina's book :(

I can just imagine all of these books spread out in one room!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wouldn't that be impressive!!! I'm sure you will add something equally beautiful!!

I love these leaves by Lindsay! And you cannot do anything "faded" even if you wanted. Looking forward to seeing your addition.

These are great, and I absolutely understand how you feel, because I'm sitting here looking at your amazing work in Glen's beautiful sketchbook.
