Been busy painting!

I have been very busy painting these last few weeks. I have also entered some work into an open call in my home town. I’ve been working with watercolours and acrylics. I have two watercolour palettes (a Winsor and Newton Professional and a White Nights) and also tubes of Winsor and Newton Professional in an array of colours. I have a huge box of acrylics and it is a nightmare going through them all searching for colours!!

Summer Days and the Heatwave

It is hot here in the UK, well for this country’s standards! I am staying out of the heat where possible, but the fans are on constantly in our household!

I decided to paint a couple of Summer ladies in watercolours. One of them sold within a day, the Red Summer painting. The other one, which I call, simply, Girl in Sun Hat, will be going for sale in my Etsy store, or I am quite tempted to keep her!!

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!!
