Rainbow Splashes



Drawing again

I have not had much time for art this week, (in the process of redecorating my lounge) however I managed to get two drawing done. Something I haven’t done in a while. The first is of my cat lolling in front of the fire, despite it being spring here we are still getting yuck weather!



The next one is a pencil and pastel drawing which I might turn into a painting later.


From time to time I drag out this painting and splash some paint on waiting for inspiration, so far all I get is a branch going across, I am beginning to think I might do a bush scene.


Well that’s it for this week.  Thanks for visiting and thanks to Paint Party Friday for allowing us to show and tell!



Best Friends

I think the sweetest thing is when sisters are best friends, or perhaps when best friends are sisters!

Hello There

I have decided to revive this blog as I cant get into my old blog My Place.  Its a long story and I wont go into it here.

Lately I have been getting into digital art and have just purchased Coral Paint Essentials 5.  Later I might go the whole hog and buy Painter 2018, but I will see how I get on first!

Yesterday, I started to play, and here is what I have done so far, it needs further work but I am quite pleased with it.


Will post the finish pic whatever the result , lol.


Paper Circles

Last week when I was in Wellington, the nearest city I splurged on a lot of art materials – papers, pens, paints etc.  The item I was most excited about was the journal I brought.  I had one like last year, it was lovely to work in, the paper is 150gm so you can really be rough with it.  It doesnt warp and bubble.  The local shops said they dont make it anymore, which I found out was a lie the shop in Wellingtonsaid it is still made.  Any way I brought 5.  (Luckily they were cheap! 

Today I did my first journal page in it.  I decided to follow the prompt I found on Heidi Illustrates where Catherine Constance was interviewed.  She is one of my favourite illustrators.  When she is stuck she draws a circle.  So I cut two circles from my stash of watercolour splashes and hey presto.

Today I am going to link to Manon’s Paper Saturdays
