My students wanted to learn how to use watercolours today. Although I add watercolour to my sketches, I don't often set out to make an actual watercolour painting as I don't feel as comfortable using them, much preferring to paint in oil
So I taught them a load of techniques and encouraged them to experiment. I shall upload their images on my art classes Facebook page but thought I would share my daubings here.
Loads of colour and fun. Just to to give a sense of size, the snail is 7cms long!
It is always lovely to sell a painting , but even better when you receive a photo of where it hangs.
A couple of years ago I painted three small fantasy cow paintings. One was a purple cow with a golden crown and tapestry shawl, the second was a cow dressed up to go dancing in fish net stockings and a 1st Prize badge, the third was wearing moon and star pajamas with a bow in her hair and leggings. They were quite small and I painted the frames in tiny detail.
The first two sold quickly and I put the third one aside thinking I might do a few more. I showed it recently in an exhibition and sold it, I must admit I love it when people buy my crazy paintings.
What was really lovely was that I received a photo of the painting from the buyer. She had given it to one of her granddaughter who posed in front of it while standing on her bed.
Still makes me smile every time I see it.
