Another wee painting

Woodland Path, 12.5 x 17.5cm (5 x 7″), watercolour and gouache on watercolour paper, £40

This wee painting was fun to do as it’s so far from the norm for me. I restricted my colour palette completely and I experimented with layer upon layer of the same colour. I’ll be doing this kind of thing again.

The original photo by the wonderful Nelleke whose work you can find on DeviantArt.

My work is for sale online Etsy, Artfinder and artgallery as usual, so head over there if you would like a wee original, prints or greetings cards.

Skye Stream

Skye Stream, watercolour and gouache on watercolour paper, 13 x 18cm (5 x 7″), £40

Now that the Easter holidays are over, I have been painting again, and Skye Stream is just the beginning. I loved experimenting with the contrasting colours of yellow, orange and purple and just letting them run together.

Since I last posted, my exhibition at Smithy Gallery finished and I had to say goodbye to some of my favourite paintings, many of which are going to the US which I am delighted about – below are some of the paintings that sold and are off to new homes…

After a bit of an absence, I’ve just popped this painting on my shops for sale. I will post a bit more about my latest activities over the next week or two.

You can find it on Etsy and Artfinder.

Spring Woodland

I have just managed to work out how to sell my paintings with variations on Etsy. It took me a while.

You can now buy Spring Woodland as either framed or unframed, depending on what you want. I can now head into the weekend with a real feeling of achievement – a database didn’t defeat me!

 

To the Islands

To the Islands, gouache on watercolour paper, 18 x 13cm, £40

If you drive just 20 minutes south of where I live, you get to the highest point in the Glasgow area. From there you can look out west and see the islands of Arran and Ailsa Craig.

If you are lucky enough, the sun will be doing spectacular things at the same time.

To the Islands is for sale online at all the usual place – Etsy, Artfinder, Art Gallery and nuMonday.
