Watercolouring .....


I have recently been painting a lot with Acrylics, but don't think for a minute that I have put away my watercolours...oh no,  they are by my side constantly.  





Very handy actually for jotting down a few ideas - in fact I even plan out my large canvas paintings in watercolour first.

Today, I thought I would post my recent additions to Sketchbook Challenge, (here's the link to their Website) the theme this month being Flowers - and here's the link to their Flickr site where the challenges are posted.








































So you see I do still love painting with my watercolours!

  8. Wow, you've been busy. The pink flower with green leaves, third one down, really sings. Spring is on it's way!

  9. I enjoy all of your work, but I really do love water colors. I know they can be hard to 'control' but I have always loved the soft, gentle look that they give to each picture.

  14. It is good to have a switch around sometimes; just enough to keep the creative juices flowing anyway. I can see why you have chosen to step into spring with these paintings; they are so joyous.
