My paintings in a book!

For a while I've wanted to make a portfolio of my work which I can show to galleries or interested people and I've finally done it!  The whole process was relatively painless although it took far longer than I imagined it would, but now I have a beautiful book full of my favourite paintings.  Even better, I've made it available for everyone to buy and already sold two copies!

Have a look and let me know what you think.

Small but beautifully formed...

I've been working on more small watercolours this year, it just seemed sensible in the current economic climate, we're all struggling to make ends meet for one reason or another.  I found the ideal size for ease of framing was 7.5" square which frames beautifully in a 12" square, so I set to work on a series.

Essence of  Summer, 7.5" x 7.5"
Purple Haze, 7.5" x 7.5"
Pond Peas, 7.5" x 7.5"
Red Day Lily. 7.5" x 7.5"
"Essence of Summer" and "Red Day Lily" are both displayed in the Kington Gallery.

Irises update

Is it really 3 months since I posted here?  I owe you all a huge update!

Although it has been a long time the irises haven't progressed much.... this is as far as I got before other things drew my attention.

It's still waiting for me to paint the last iris on the right.... one day!

Over the coming days I'll share what else I've been up to over summer.
