Lilacs and Pansies

My last two watercolours, both from my own photographs (something I always aim to do - to be original it's important that the whole creative process, from reference to final painting, comes from you. Occasionally I am inspired by a photograph which isn't my own, in those instances I would make sure I had permission from the photographer to use their image before starting to paint. Respecting the copyright of other artists is vital!)

The Sweet Scent of Spring: 10x14, watercolours on Fabriano extra white 140lb paper

Black and Gold: 13x10, watercolours on Fabriano extra white 140lb paper

Both will be available as prints or cards from Redbubble

Some recent work!

I've been a busy bee, got lots of painting done. It's nice when you find your muse and painting is fun again!

Now what was first? Hmmmm.

There were the Liquorice Allsorts, lots of fun this one, and even the "black" is watercolour! 13x10, and available for sale.
Next.......Dawn on the Dee, a small watercolour landscape, a complete change from the vibrant colours of the allsorts.
Now I went crazy! lol "The Clash" - pink and orange gladioli, 10x14 watercolour.
I'm still painting, today I finished Black and Gold, which will be in my next post!
