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

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.

Harlequin Macaw In Watercolour

 Last weekend I was lucky enough to be in the Artfinder Popup exhibition at The Foundry in Camden Stables Market. It was a lovely show and I met some lovely folks. During the show I did a painting demo and, continuing my parrot obsession, the piece I wanted to paint was a Harlequin Macaw. I just adore their fabulous colours!

Here is the painting underway at the show.
