Paper Paint Pencils and Pens


Yes...Paper Paint Pencils and Pens

if you haven't visited this blog, then I thoroughly recommend it.  You can join in and add your drawings, paintings and sketches there.  Working to a Theme that changes regularly you will never get stuck for some inspiration.

Okay, so I co-admin.  on it...I am bound to sing its praises....but so worth joining.  Lynn Cohen in the USA is the brains behind this great blog.....

The current Theme is : "The town you grew up in"

February 16th-28th   suggested by one of our contributors Elaine Pang (jaguarish)


Here are some of my
sketches so far for the Theme....
and I have to admit having had a great time
looking back at the town/local area
I grew up in and called home for so long.


Lyndhurst Hampshire




Minstead Church New Forest




My Secondary school - Bartley




My first job was in this building - a bank.







The Pier Southampton




Thatched pub at Lyndhurst

  3. Such gorgeous watercolors, Ann. I grew up in the rural area of Shelby County Tennessee so there was no town. The nearest consisted of a post office, 2 churches,a school, and a service station/market. None except the one church are still there, having been taken over by a huge railroad yard. I haven't been back in decades I enjoyed seeing where you grew up.

    1. What a pity its a railroad yard now, but things change and life moves on doesn't it. Where I was brought up, it seems to have changed over the years...doesn't seem as tranquil any more.
