The light wasn’t great when I photographed the early stages of my watercolour painting of a hedgehog. I will build many transparent colour layers to create this little hog. I’ll aim to capture an essence of his character. I’m waiting for the paint to dry before I carry on.
I’ll update you soon with how my little hog painting is coming on!
It is a joy to be making puddles of colour again, adding water and letting my brush drop colour onto the paper.
Whilst I’m waiting, I’ll make a hot chocolate or chamomile tea to warm my hands.
Have a lovely evening.
I couldn’t resist taking this shot from the courtyard, such a colourful sky!
2019 is here and the weather is mild in Bedfordshire, where I live. I miss my big cottage garden border full of dahlias, so here are a few of them to delight you!
My second collage is from a walk around my cousin’s garden on Christmas eve. I adore Viburnam blossom, so sweet, my favourite catkins , rhododendron buds ..should they be out now? And finally fresh green ferns.
