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 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?


On Friday I spent the day helping out at the primary school where my mum works. They were having a “Green Day”, they had a fair with lots of fun activities for the kids (I was roped into painting faces) and afterwards all the kids spend the rest of the day in the school gardens planting and learning about the environment. Lots of fun was had by all.

Aside from painting creepy crawlies/flowers on the faces of dozens of children, my creative activity of the day was more necklace making!

Some nice long ones;

 

I also took a few pictures when I was out walking the hound with Wee Bro;

 


Wow, the hot sunny weather just doesn’t seem to be going away!

It has distracted me a bit from blogging though, but I’m sure I can be forgiven as I’ve still been making pretty things.

Sooo…

Thursdays creative activity was making these two lovely necklaces;

They were prizes for a eco/green themed raffle at the school my mum works at.


I’ve moved on from robots, now it’s all about dinosaurs.

Well maybe not alll about dinosaurs but they are definitely a favorite for my creative projects just now.

 

Once again I’m off to enjoy the rare Scottish sunshine!


Finished wee project.

Inspired by the sand dunes at Kinshaldy Beach/Tentsmuir Forest, Fife, Scotland.

 

 


A stormy painting inspired by all the rain we (Scotland, specifically Fife) have been having this past few days.
