Ghengis Asil Cock

Ghengis is a a new chicken painting. This amazing lad is a Reza Asil cock. A fiesty gamefowl breed from India. He’s quite a character and it shows in his posture. This is one chicken who’ll defend his space! Painted in watercolour and drip pens on Saunders Waterford 16×12 inch paper, with some gold and bronze in those feathers, and a glint in his eye.

Shadow Hare On Handmade Paper – sold

Exciting! I’ve just finished my first watercolour painting on my new Two Rivers paper. It’s handmade artists rag paper, it’s a heavy weight and has a random surface texture and four deckle edges, love those deckle edges.

I love painting hares so what better subject to use on this gorgeous paper? This hare pricks up his ears and twitches those lovely whiskers, he’s keeping an eye out for trouble. The sun streams past and throws his soft lilac shadow in front of him. He is painted in watercolour and acrylic inks.

A Little Ewe In Watercolour

little ewe watercolour painting

A pretty  little ewe, I think she is a Masham. She has such a cute black and white face and black knees, (which you can’t see in the painting). I painted her with with reds and purples in the darks and blues in the whites. It contrasts with her fleece, full of golds and yellows.

She’s painted in watercolour on 12×9 inch Fabriano Artistico rough watercolour paper, with watercolour pastels. I love the texture in this paper.
