Hello there. I painted this in acrylic. The difficulty of this painting was the perspectives of the window, the sun rays, the table, and the books on the table😒😒😒. When I did my initial sketch with a pencil, I got the perspective correctly.
However, once I began painting, my acrylic was thick, and with all the layering, I lost my view 🤣🤣🤣. Someone wanted to know how I did the wall. It is a layering effect, beginning with dark background colours with burnt sienna and ultramarine blue. Then I dabbed the brush with additional colours and finally glazed with a light grey.
However, what I liked about this painting is the simple stuff in life. Don’t we all love the sun’s rays through the window? I love to wake up to a morning of sunshine💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽. It instantly perks me up. Of course, a cup of hot coffee or tea is sheer bliss. I love that quiet moment with the sun and my coffee. I can’t explain what that is. It is not like I am jubilant, but it grounds me to the reality that I can enjoy my cuppa🤔😑😑. I don’t think beyond that moment. I don’t plan for the day. I hope that all will go well and I will see the sunset🙏🙏🙏🙂🙂🙂. It’s like my painting, I lost the perspective, but I like the cup of coffee on that table😊😊😊

Thanks Sheila, just sharing my thoughts. In our present world where we are indundated with bleak news, am trying to let people know life is still fine.:)
I think you have the right perspective on life. Not over-thinking or over-planning. Enjoy life’s little moments and hope for the best.
Thanks for being a great friend Nyuk. You do keep me grounded:):)
My Favourite, with a cup of aromatic coffee sitting by the window enjoying the morning sun. Better still if there were fragrances from flowers and music from the birds!
