Winter Field

Sometimes I love a scene so much, I have to paint it more than once. Here is my latest offering, Winter Field. Below it is an earlier version; and below that is the original photograph.

Blue Woods

Blue Woods, 18 x 13cm (7 x 5″), gouache on watercolour paper

I’m into blue at the moment. Ultramarine blue, phthalo blue and lots of blues in between. So I couldn’t resist painting a woodland scene in Prussian blue, my favourite of them all.

This wee painting is now available on Etsy, Artfinder and ArtGallery.

Sunset Cottage

Sunset Cottages, 15 x 10cm (6 x 5″), gouache on watercolour paper

Field of Flowers

I love the variety of colours in this painting. I don’t often use bright pinks, but I think I will be from now on – they contrast beautifully with oranges and greens. I think I may have found a new favourite colour.

Field of Flowers is for sale on Etsy, Artfinder and ArtGallery.

Skye in Spring

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.

Skye in Spring is for sale on Etsy, Artfinder and ArtGallery.

Hollyhocks

Hollyhocks, gouache on watercolour paper, 13 x 18cm (5 x 7″)

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.

Azaleas is for sale on Etsy, Artfinder and ArtGallery.

Azaleas, 13 x 18cm (5 x 7″), gouache on watercolour paper

There was nothing more fun than splashing the pink paint around on this one, and I love the contrasting colours in the yellow and oranges behind the flowers.

Azaleas is for sale on Etsy, Artfinder and ArtGallery.

Misty Island

Misty Island, 18 x 13cm (7 x 5″), gouache on watercolour paper

Sometimes I just need to let gouache and watercolour do its own thing, and when I do, wonderful things happen as colours blend and merge. This wee painting was the result.
