Catch Up Time

I'm so bad at updating this blog, sorry everyone, I promise to try harder!

Since the cosmic poppies I've done some pure watercolour but I've also been inspired to try something new. 

First the pure watercolour, Birthday Lilies seemed like a battle when I was working on it but turned out well in the end.
Birthday Lilies
15" x 11"

Then I had a couple of absolute disasters which I won't torture you with, they really were terrible!  I discovered the blog of an old friend, Emily Lagore, who has inspired me to try altered books/journalling, but I had to get materials before I could start so no progress on that beyond the shopping :D

More in my next post!

Disasters we all have. It's part of the game!

Ruth,
I cant imagine any of your work turning out terrible. These lilies are beautiful and your poppies are stunning, thanks for the step by step.

I truly appreciate all of these lovely comments, thank you everyone!

I'm sure everyone who paints has failures where things just don't work. I'm learning that I have to think and plan far more because the paintings which fail are usually the ones I started just because I wanted to paint. Impatience is my enemy!
