Field of Yarrow

Field of Yarrow is one of those paintings where the image was going around in my head for weeks. I was desperate to get it out onto paper, board or canvas, it didn’t matter, but a burst water tank and a good bit of flooding in my house delayed it far more than I wanted. The house is drying out as I type, and I painted this to distract myself from the horrors of dehumidifiers and wet carpets. Joy.

Field of Yarrow is is available in all my shops, Etsy, Artfinder and ArtGallery.

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.

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!
