Acrylic painting

I painted this one a while ago but have only just got around to getting it framed.  Being quite textured acrylic it was just attracting dust so here it is framed.  I was using a tutorial I found on youtube by Peter Dranitsin and I really enjoyed painting it.  Oh I must do more painting soon – where does my time disappear to?

Pen and wash practice

I have been having a go at a tutorial in Paint magazine by Sue Williams of a pen and wash scene.  The camera hasn’t picked up the colour all that well, but having said that I could have added a bit more colour in the grassy areas.  I am not sure whether I should keep going with it and add more colour to the foreground or just leave it be?  I think I will leave it for now and I can always go back to it if I want to later.

Teasel watercolour

My goodness how did it get to 2018 so quickly!  My mojo went for a wander so I just had a wee break from anything arty/crafty for a while but I am back now to have another go.  So I am starting the year off by doing small sketches or other in my sketch books or art journals rather than trying to paint ‘proper’ pictures so that I don’t mind too much if I muck up.  I did this the other day having watched Alison C Board’s video on you tube painting teasel on wood.  My version is not on wood and doesn’t use the same colours but it gave me inspiration to have a go.  Watercolour and Brusho but with a bit of Stabilo pen to darken a few lines.
