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 is one of my favourite Scottish islands – there is a magic to the landscape no matter what time of the year. Every time I go there I come away wanting to paint. I was there this year; so here is the resulting wee painting.
I once saw a bank of hollyhock flowers in the wild. They were all sorts of colours, dark pink, light pink, white, red and deep purple. I am building up to painting them – I took photos – but in the meantime, here is a pale pink hollyhock plant that is currently living in my garden.
