Bluebell Glade

Bluebell Glade, gouache and watercolour

A wee bluebell painting, because no matter how many times I paint bluebells, I still want to do more.

This one is for sale in all the usual online places –  Etsy, Artfinder and artgallery – but if you want to see my original paintings for sale in the real world, they are being exhibited at Smithy Gallery in their Affordable Art Show from 24 June – 22 July 2018. The Private View is on Sunday 24 June, 2pm–5pm. You are more than welcome.

Summer Wildflowers

Lately, I have been deciding on the colours I want to use first before painting, and have been loving the results. Limiting my palette has had a very freeing effect on my work, allowing me to solely concentrate on what I am creating and not on what colours I’m going to be using as well. I’ve used a lot of water too which has dictated the shapes and patterns I have used as it flows and moves my paint into its own desired shapes.

I’m going to be exploring this method of painting more, not just because I like the paintings I am producing, but also because I am really enjoying myself.

Summer Wildflowers, along with In the Blue, Dancing and Swaying, and a few other wee paintings will be exhibited at Smithy Gallery in their Affordable Art Show from 24 June – 22 July 2018. The Private View is on Sunday 24 June, 2pm–5pm. You are more than welcome.

I used inks, gouache, watercolour and gesso on this painting, letting the colours run and just seeing what will happen. It will be part of my exhibition at Smithy Gallery from the 4th Feb.

Yesterday was a busy day at Smithy Gallery’s Private View, and I loved the way my paintings looked. Here are four of them grouped together on one wall.

While the two below were also on display, I just forgot to take photos – oops.
