This could be for the next exhibition...'A Flawed Pearl'
A vase full of Lillies - 2011
Sarum College Salisbury after Christmas.
It is painted in Acrylics for a change and I have enjoy using a different medium........... however watercolours - I feel - are far more exciting and challenging !!!
I am working on a second painting that is nearly completed - just need the light to improve, which means tomorrow!
I have to share with you - the love of my art room...I now have electricity IN the room; so I sit here tapping on my laptop with a little desk light on the table - it is so fantastic!!!!
My 'Christmas is coming'...one of my Christmas designs is doing well on comments on a different site...so refreshing! One person said how it made her feel all festive! That's the spirit.
I have just put my "Christmas Edition " of Jigsaw Designs in my slide show on my home page website...click on the link and have a look!!!
Jigsaw Design - A Graduation...2011
this is a card I did in watercolour and pen for my girlie's boyfriend. It was the second attempt as the first was very 'tight'...and therefore lost its freshness! I am pleased with the result as I have done a couple that have not been acceptable to me - drawing more, is most certainly the key...
It is raining so hard here....even the water butts are full..
I have completed my final stage of my Jigsaw Design
Jigsaw Design - Final stage 2011
Am I happy with it?
I feel that it is quite dark, and I have worked hard on it losing the fresh lose approach that I can achieve....but it does have a misty aura about it and a feeling about it. I have got the atmosphere that I was looking for, so I am happy with that!
I continue with the next development of my watercolour.
2nd wash - 2011
I have put a darker wash on, and pulled colour out. This is to give the foreground more strength and the painting more depth...and I have captured the misty effect that comes in the early mornings !...
I need to add a little darker to the horizon; emphasising the mist more...but all in all 'good effort girl' as Dad would say!
Next will be the final marks with a brush - and then charcoal...I hope that I haven't made it too dark for that, that is my only worry - but lessons are being learnt!
