    Flower Explosion

    I just went for this one, no messing for hours wondering what to paint. But as usual I painted it too dark & overdid it on the flowers so I spent ages trying to lighten it & get rid of some of the flowers. I wish I could remember that less is more, but I just keep forgetting.

    Painting Halfway 

  2. We were given these Ducks years ago by our next door neighbour & they have lived contentedly in our front garden ever since. I have taken many photos meaning to paint them as they look so lovely. 
    Customers love to personaliise our gifts so I am always looking for new ideas to add wording to my paintings but I started drawing the ducks thinking it was just going to be a straight forward picture, then eureka! 
    I had the idea of personalising the tag hanging on my Olive tree (I brought it in the summer & have still not planted it or cut the tag off). 
    Then I thought about how Roses are often named after people so it morphed into a Rose bush, it's the only way most people can ever have a Rose named after them & it's in plenty of time for Mother's day!

  3. Bored with watching telly over Christmas I wanted to paint. 
    I looked through some of my countryside photos but could not find any I liked so I just made this one up as I went along. Half way through I thought It looked so boring, then I had the idea to add the birds. 
    I feel like a fledgling myself, I am spreading my wings and gaining my confidence with Acrylics who knows maybe 2018 will be the year I start to fly.
