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.

Small Rocks…

When my sons were very young, they used to collect stones for me, as a sort of love gesture, I saved many of them and kept them in tubs. I pulled out a few out earlier today and painted them, great subjects for finding the¬†hidden little nuances that you wouldn’t normally pay attention to (as with the shells (posted earlier)) each stone is unique…

The Stream…

Here’s a painting (of my children) I’m currently working on, one I’m very much enjoying, due in large part, to the highly detailed nature of the piece., as it’s a present for someone, I wanted it to be a little special. I’m working on it in acrylics at the moment but will switch to oils for technical reasons soon.

Plenty more still left to do, will post it’s progress as I go…
