The Glow

I wanted to paint a black woman, to represent the beautiful sheen of her skin, and her soulful eyes.

I worked in watercolours on 8×8″ watercolour paper.

Here are some photos from the process:

The end result. The Glow – watercolours, 8×8″

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!!

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.

Ballerinas

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