More Water-Subjects…

These water scenes are dominating my (spare) painting time lately, I want to paint more and more. I adore the process of looking into the reference shots and making sense of the chaotic patterning. Having fun!

Cygnet…

Took a whole heap of fabulous photos on the weekend, dearly wanted to paint one of the cygnets I took pics of. This little watercolour is 3 x 4″, I’m definitely going to paint a larger one, most enjoyable

Sand and Shells…

very much enjoying having the watercolours out again. My life right now is pretty hectic and having these sorts of paintings on the go is a GREAT way to de-stress and focus on something other than ‘stuff’. Recommended.

On The Drawing Board…

Back into the fantasy stuff again. I’m currently working on bits and pieces for the new publisher of ‘The Fantasy Artroom’. This is one I worked on but discarded, wasn’t quite what we were after. Still, it has a certain charm…

Watercolour Warmup From This Morning…

I’m very much enjoying this new little exercise I’m practicing as often as time allows. Seeing and studying everyday objects is a great way to warm up and it helps the eyes look for subtleties in subjects we may otherwise never notice. I really recommend this…

This little painting took approximately 12 minutes.

Watercolour Warmups…

As I’ve been working on my most recent children’s book in watercolour, it stands to reason that I should get into the right frame of mind with a loosening up session. I painted both of these this morning, both very enjoyable. I’ll do this more often…
