hydrangea in purple

Loving the new Lavender watercolour from Daniel Smith.  Might have to try out the new Wisteria  as well.  hydrangea phase of painting is a nice break from birds.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Painting roses for a change

Painting roses in full bloom - wet on dry technique.  Allows for lots of control and you can add layer upon layer of glazes once the first layer is dry.

Rose buds - wet on wet technique.  A softer overall result but far less control.

Painting bluebells in May

Apparently a month can fly past while painting bluebells in myfree time.
Added the top stem of bluebells for a bit of a challenge.  The bottom stem are from the 
May tutorial from Anna Mason's online school.

Time seems to disappear when I am painting.

Australia's never ending summer had me in the mood for tulips.  
Inspired by Mr Marshal's flower book.
