Watercolours.

I am so new to watercolours! These are my first two real attempts with the medium. I am reasonably pleased with the outcomes. I have so much to learn about using watercolours though and I shall enjoy experimenting with them.

The Tiger I have painted in oils before, as you may remember, so it was interesting to me to notice the differences between the two mediums. I do still prefer the oils to paint with but that is probably because I am such a beginner with watercolours and oils are far more familiar to me.

I hope you like them.

Robins – in watercolour.

It has been too cold for me to work in my usual place with my usual materials of oil paints and mixed media. To keep warm and to keep busy I have been trying a new medium – watercolours – and, because it’s been the run up to Christmas, I thought I would attempt a few robins! I hope you like them. Next year I hope to make some of them into greeting cards.

Merry Christmas everyone.
