Peacock Tree

Peek at a new watercolor I'm working on.
I made the pencil drawing today.
I'll watercolor it later tonight.
I always feel a compulsion to paint
when it's raining outside,
the grayer the day the better.
What kind of day inspires you to paint?

I love the kind of day when the snow floats down to the window seals. Or, when I have got enough sunshine per diem, I enjoy a good sun ray through the blinds filling up the room with warm radiant light. Looking out to the passerby's as they stroll past on a soft spring-summer eve, like today.

Any day that I get to look at your drawings or paintings is a day in which I feel inspired to try it myself!

I like ANY day rain or shine when I can carve out time for creativity!(Usually requires turning blind eye to housework..)

Peacock Tree is exquisitely intricate--looking forward to seeing finished result!

Other artists, like you, inspire me much more than any particular day. Thank you for sharing, Geninne. You made me pick up the brushes again (and forget about former watercolor instructors!).

I get inspired to paint on cold blustery nights when the snow looks blue and sparkles like diamonds.

Rainy days are the best! I can't understand why most people don't like them, but this probably makes me like them even more! I think I can do anything in such a day, even take walks as long as I have some waterproof boots on! I don't even need an umbrella! :)
Oh, and I have discovered that I am most productive at night, when everything is so quiet..

Hi there!

I'm inspired by sunny days, the happiness of my life, all of my good moods, the beauty around me.
If I'm in a bad mood I never paint, work. It may sound stupid because life is full of good and bad and you mus handle both. But in my work I don't want black and bad to be present.
I love your work! Congratulations!

Bonjour Geninne! This drawing is so close to the Indian themes, with the elaborate tree and the graceful peacocks! Are you fill in colour into this or this just a reference drawing? A cloudy, rainy day or even a hail-storm outside is when I enjoy sitting in a warmly lit room with my work the most, not to mention the cup of masala-tea that has to give me company! Have a great weekend! dithi.

Sorry about the typo in my last comment, rephrasing: ''Are you going to fill in colour into this or is this just a reference drawing?''

I'm not sure I've ever noticed a connection between weather and work. It's more of a time thing. If I have loads of time stretched out in front of me, I am most open and creative. If I have to fit creating into an hour or less, I'm more like to sit in front of the computer and putter around.

I noticed that comment about the coloring book. I'm sure that is much easier said than done. But if it were ever to come about, I'd be a buyer. One for me, one for my daughter.

Your sketches are so beautiful :)


I can't explain what inspires me to paint or draw, I think I just have to wake up with that "feeling" :)

When the golden late-afternoon light comes through my hobby room window, that's when I need to create. Unfortunately, it's usually just dinner! lol

Geninne, I love your peacock tree. They are such a great subject for art, but never again do I want one living in MY trees... they're a nightmare! But I still enjoy drawing them. They are so nice and quiet then...
can't wait to see yours painted.

Good question! Rainy days are good for painting because you don't feel guilty for not enjoying the great weather! It's nice and cozy inside with a cup of tea and a rainstorm.

Although for landscape paintings with my watercolors, a sunny day is great :) Great work, Gennine!

I need daylight to paint. Overcast is the best condition because the light is diffused. I love your drawing and can't wait to see the painting!

I feel like painting on typical autumn days in Argentina. Sunny, cool weather and a gentle breeze.
