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

Work(s) In Progress…

I have a few paintings on the go, dotted around the room, I try and keep them moving along in between commissioned bits and pieces. Here’s how these are shaping up so far…

And here’s a sketch I made earlier, I like these 1 hour doodles as I’m able to try out new things without feeling like I have to create a masterpiece…

This one was a very quick, end of the day doodle, very much enjoyed the loose quality of this one…

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…
