I’ve been painting!
It’s great to have been painting again after all my wire work in the last wee while, I decided that I’d have another go with watercolours. I unearthed some photos I took up near Ullapool a few years ago and chose one of Loch Broom to use.
Here’s the result:
It’s fine, It hasn’t photographed particularly well but it’s ok. I enjoyed painting it but I’m not convinced by the result.
I’m not really used to painting with watercolours, I worked with them a bit in high school but that was really it.
Recently I thought I’d give them another go, here’s the result:
For Christmas I gave out lots of arty/crafty gifts.
Here’s a wee photie of the goldfinch I painted for my grandparents. They often see goldfinches in their garden and are quite attached to the wee birdies.
I spent Saturday morning happily painting and making.
It was a real treat being able to spend time being arty and crafty.
The painting was just a wee one of Castle Cambell and the Ochil Hills as a wedding gift for a friend. A little bit of Scotland for them to take to their new home together in London.
I also made a nice seaglass necklace and earring set.
I’m looking forward to try and get some more arty time this Saturday….now just to think of a project…hmm…paints? Jewellery? Wire?
Here’s a picture of the two paintings I completed while I was away.
The photo isn’t great, no natural light.
One is inspired by the plumage of a peacock and the other is a Scottish inspired landscape.
Here are the paintings I completed when I was away;
I also made some beaded memory wire necklaces with my lovely six year old cousin, I don’t have any photographs of them though.
Yesterday was another very sunny day, we even had a lovely BBQ after spending the day doing some gardening.
I decided to to some painting in the evening as my creative thing;
And now I’m off to enjoy the sun. Again.
It surely can’t last much longer…right?
