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:

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 now have a little of my wire work on display in a local cafe. Which is pretty cool.

I spent a while on Friday setting out some of my creations in one of the display cabinets at the lovely Fresh Coffee Shop (Dunfermline). It’s a fantastic and very friendly cafe, well worth a visit if you’re local.

Here’s a few wee pictures of how it turned out:

I’m quite glad its all set up now, this week has been a wire week and I’ve been itching to get the paints back out again for another wee play.


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.


I graduated! Also I’m still alive. I’ll blog more when I’m less crazy busy.x

 


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.
