Canola Fields

I've done this watercolour from a photo, I had to ask the artist permission (he kindly said yes!) I love yellow as a colour so I'm always drawn to canola!

Landscape in Watercolour

Acrylic - Lilies

I've had fun doing this one, I'm hoping to go to some acrylic classes. I'm self-taught with acrylics and know I will benefit with some help! I saw a picture of a white lily with the yellow and maroon colours but had a difficult time finding one to buy. To have a real lily made it much easier!

Watercolour - Oriental Lilies

Another excersise from an artbook!

The last house

Another House


I've been to a couple of watercolour classes, love doing it again! I have done three houses, one house was from an excersise and the other two just followed!

Watercolour - Lilies

Watercolour - Irises

Watercolour Landscape

I haven't had much time over the last couple of weeks, we moved house and it feels like the last boxes to be unpacked was my art equipment! I'm playing around with watercolours, don't know why .... I've always loved the way watercolours just run over and into the paper but I do enjoy oils and acrylics for the way I can control the paint. I do think the watercolours just reflects my current mood at this stage, and I'm enjoying the journey!

Here is a couple of old and new watercolours I've done!

Acrylic painting done over 3 canvasses, I'm also still busy on some details .... posting this I realise I have quite a few that I need to finish!

A Rose done in oils, I still need to do some work on the background!

I've done a couple of Bratz for my niece, I'm not sure about copy rights so this was the last one I did, I do love their funky hair!
In between some more "serious" work I just love painting art for children's rooms! We always buy art for the house but never for the kids! This is an acrylic painting with some glitter highlights .... every girl needs glitter!

I'm still new to the wonderful world of "blog"! Hope to learn some more from other blogs to make mine interesting and exciting!

More Lilies!

This is still a work in progress ... driving me a little mad, think it's time for something else!

Arun Lily

Another Arun lily, not sure if I'm finished ..... think I will still do some work on it!

The Rose

I started with the "urge" to do a rose, tried one before but wasn't happy with the outcome (even though my hubby likes it!), started this one and with lots of patience finished it at last!
