Art supplies, Sketching, Sirkka Jalava

The spring is here. I have much to do inside and outside the house, my plants are growing inside and outside I will clean up before everything begins to grow and flower.   I have not had time to sketch so much. But I have been here and read what you all have done. Now the theme is changed too.
To day I sketched my art supplies a bit and the place where I usually sit and paint. If I am not in the kitchen.
I often watch on tv or listen to music at same time. I go seldom outside, it can happen only in summertime, when it is warm enough.

  1. I've missed your interesting posts Sirkka, so its good to see this colourful layout. I love the blues in the background and the colourful paintbox. You have a very tidy desk.

    1. Jackie, thank you. I don´t draw so much before painting, not here, but sometimes I do it of course. When I must do an exact painting. We learn us best when we sketch much and here we have an excellent opportunity to do it!

    1. Thank you Mia! I can´t say how I use the colors, perhaps it is only how you are used to do and what you like of colors kind of. We learn from each others here in PPP&P when we sketsh togther.

  6. Great to see you back, Sirkka! I love seeing your beautiful living (and working) spaces. It feels like you are there in the picture, sitting right there even though you aren't pictured.

    1. Margaret, happy to be here. but sometimes I must do something else too. I enjoy the spring working in the garden and seeing all the beauty there and listening to birds, enjoying sunshine. It is nice to make clean after the winter. Yes, Margaret, I am sitting there in my usual place, you feel right. Thank you!
