Busy busy painting

Although I love painting Large watercolours, I get a lot of fun from painting miniatures, namely the ACEO (Art Cards Edition & Originals).   I add most of them to my Etsy shop.

This week is no exception and I've been busy in the studio again.  So without further ado, here (with links) are my new additions at studiohydeart.

I will be adding more paintings to the shop later today

A FaceTime chat....

Well, that sounds perfectly normal, a Facetime chat which we had with our daughter.   Plus her pony got in on the chat too, and was wearing a Santa hat...

we are perfectly

About time for a clean water pot and palette again don't you think.....

      but mix it up before you clean out the palette and you have a very nice shadow colour to use.

Sketches and ideas

Sketches help me decide how to set out a painting and also the doodling part gives me ideas too.  That's how some of my recent paintings have began....a piece of paper, pencil and watercolour.   Not all my sketches and ideas end up as completed works, but a lot do...

Here's where you may recognise some of the above, 
now on my Etsy shop

New on my Etsy shop...

To start with I have done a painting from my previous post photo...

what doesn't show in the photograph were the ponies wandering about (as they do in the New Forest)
so I took artistic license and added them in my painting

Now added this to my Etsy shop,
impressionist/contemporary, and for me holds the feeling of the day when I took the photo.

and now onto some additional paintings added to my shop

All Original watercolours
aceo (Art Card Editions & Originals - miniature artworks)

plus this Contemporary painting is titled: "Running Wild"
a little larger than the aceo's at
7.5 x 5 inches

Catch up with new updates

Etsy shop

The Gloucestershire countryside

We stopped off recently in Gloucestershire and needless to say this view ended up as a sketch in my travel sketchbook...
