Good morning friends,
how are you all?
I've been visiting so many new places here in Scotland, garnering so many ideas for paintings that I am printing photos as I go now, in case I lose track of them all. Currently I have seven drawn out and sitting in paper stretchers, waiting for the watercolour magic to begin!
Firstly, let me show you a painted view of the beautiful Lomond Hills.
You may notice it isn't quite as realistic as previous paintings, because I am trying to convey an emotional response also. I hope you enjoy it.
Also, a new acquaintance wanted a portrait of her dog painted, so this is Blackie
after I drew that portrait, I drew a second of the same dog, so that I could experiment a little. I love exploration, whether it be travel or painting!
Here is my experimentation, and it's a mixture of ink and watercolour.
I'll have a quick run round some blogs, then I'm off to explore some more.
Have a great day!
(as always, all painted using W&N paints - and on St Cuthbert's Mill Saunders Waterford 140 rough paper.)
The day off that wasn't
