Something a little different for me, fine liner and watercolour.

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:

Loch Broom

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:

Harry the horse


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.

It’s already a month into the new year…I’m not really sure how that happened or where the month went.

Oh well.

It’s been quite a while since I did any bloggy stuff, I’ve been doing plenty of arty stuff but just not really documenting it, partly because of camera problems (I lost the memory card).

Anyway I do have a few pictures of some of the things I’ve been up to and I fully intend to look for my memory card at some point, soonish, maybe later.

So here is a wee painting of Sammy the Samoyed;

I really really hate painting white dogs. Really. (I painted Sammy under duress, it’s amazing what parents can guilt you into doing when they put their minds to it.)

I’ve still been painting lots of silhouette style paintings, birds and landscapes mostly.

Here’s a seascape that I tried to add a bit more light into;

The Lighthouse

And another of my birds on wire paintings.

Orange Bird

I’m planning on posting a bit more regularly again…so keep an eye out.


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 are a few bits and pieces I’ve been working on;

Things are pretty busy just now so I’m planning on doing only one or two posts a week for a while.
