Calla Lilies

I have a special for Calla Lilies. They look so pure and smooth, their curves and elegance. I have a pot of artificial ones on the balcony, but as I live near the steelworks, everything seems to get covered in black grime. I was trying to wash them down, when I had the idea to paint some.

Here are my Calla Lilies, painted with a palette knife in acrylic. Not letting this one go, it will have a special place on my wall once I have decorated!!

Men With Light Feet

I love to paint dancers in pencil and watercolour. I have created a series of three male dancers, focussing on the colour blue. They are all A4.

Blue Man Dances
Leap
Man With Grace

Wild Roses

I painted an abstract floral using acrylics. It is on canvas. 16×12″. I used a palette knife and gradually layered the paint, building up the textures. I am really pleased with the results, and am going to try the same technique on a larger canvas.

Ballerinas

This evening I painted a ballerina in watercolours, and I remembered the ones I had painted last year.

Grey ballerina I painted today in watercolour and pencil (although WordPress have cropped it!)
