New painting and a reminder for email readers.

I painted this little panorama of one of the beaches on our holiday.
The beach was Mellon Udrigle. White sands in West Scotland. Beautiful.

Coming home to Mellon.

Bottled Sunshine and a holiday!

I've been amongst the missing again, after having another holiday in Scotland.
This time we went to Inverewe Gardens, Poolewe.

Here's a pic of wee Paddy in our camper.

and a new painting...

The Patchwork Dog

Here, using my own sweet jack russell terrier as a model, is a child's toy...a patchwork dog.
I hope you like him.

The Bubble Jar

I was given a challenge to throw some paint at a page and incorporate it into a painting.
This is what I created:

The Sansevieria Series: III

This is the third and final in the series.
This version of the mother-in-law's tongue plant has been painted using Inktense blocks.

The Sansevieria Series: II

In this version, I used watercolour and a medium called aquapasto, made by Winsor & Newton.
When used in conjunction with watercolour, it increases the viscosity of the wash - and the resultant effect is like painting with oils.

For someone who can't use oils, this is a fabulous medium.

The Sansevieria Series I

I wanted to see how different mediums affected how an item was portrayed in art. I picked a sansevieria (mother-in-law's tongue) as my subject, and set about experimenting.

This first painting is in watercolour and ink - a pen and wash.

I've decided to have a series of three. Do come back and see the others.
