Above is one of my many paintings. This small painting is a abstract of a seascape where I have splattered a handfull of sequins and beads to create sparkles . The paints used are pearlescent acrylics, these are just BEAUTIFUL to work with.
Shown above and below is another painting of mine which I painted last year for the Pittenweem Arts Festival. Here I have used Rembrandt Watercolours. Even though this took forever to produce I thoroughly enjoyed doing this and I am very pleased with the results. Painting flowers is one of my favourite subjects. I could spend many many many hours painting flowers....... Pictured below, is more of a close up!
This is a tonal sketch of a Stargazer lily which I did last year also. This was also very therapeutic to compose also. I use to to do many tonal sketches many years ago and decided to start doing them again which I am glad I did as it gives you a feel for light and dark shades. This helps when coming to work with colour!
Hope you enjoy looking at these works of mine. Just something a little different for you all to see.
