Don't forget the hairdryer! Step by step painting in pics.

Usually I’m too impatient to document my painting process but ‘Beloved Bend of Isles’ is an exception and I'm not sure why (!). Here are the step by step pics. Watercolour’s a brilliant and fun creative medium because mostly it requires giving up ‘control’ to allow a painting to emerge. I did plan this painting a bit and also pretended to have control over the colour application and movement (with water). The view is one of my favourite places in the world. Looking down, from a high point on Catani Boulevard where we used to live, onto the Yarra River...

A cashew latte. REALLY???

A cashew latte. REALLY???

YES! One part soaked (raw) cashews to three parts water, blended for longer than you think. The result is frothy and wonderful – and just about indistinguishable from a cow’s milk café latte. My (ahem) extensive online research shows that a little cinnamon and even a date or two (the fruity kind, not a potential partner) can be popped into the mix for sweetness. Cheers big ears! Please have a squiz at my new hand-crafted COFFEE DOGS card collection. Aromatic blend, international roast, flat white, tall black… They’re being snapped up by aficionados and can be seen here: https://elizabethvercoe.com.au/collections/artcards/products/coffee-dogs-card-collection

Group hug time. Mac the dog man wins award!

Group hug time. Mac the dog man wins award!

Just wanted to share some exciting news - Mac the Dog Man has picked up a 'winner of children's non-fiction picture book' award through Bookvana in the US. :) I don't know much about the award itself, but I do know that it's largely thanks to the generosity and kindness of so many generous souls that this book even exists. You know who you are. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart to everyone who's supported this project, enjoyed a walk and chat by the river, given encouragement or patted a dog. It's all feeling pretty spesh right now. X...
