Those of you who follow my blog and my work will know that I LOVE stamps. I am sure I have hundreds of them, if not more. BUT.... their one draw back is that they can make you lazy. It's so quick to ink up a stamp and press it down. Creating your own art work does take a lot longer....
Anyway, I thought it was high time to take out my paints and pencils once more and do some original artwork, going back to my first love, - watercolour.
So, today, as I am on holiday and have a little more time, I am sharing some of my recent watercolour explorations. A series of moody watercolours and a little portrait.
It's a story from winter into Spring, - so here goes:
A wintry one with the last patches of snow
Evening sun set
Pale winter sun in the late afternoon
River bank (the composition went wrong and I ran out of space for the foreground tree, - duh)....
This was meant to be more Spring like, but it all got a bit dark. I think I have been rather influenced by the weather here which has been rather dark lately.
And here is a little child's portrait, children's faces always fascinate me, it's so hard to capture their innocence...
Well, that's it for today, thanks for visiting and indulging me with my little arty efforts. I'll be back with some more crafty/ mixed media projects soon, meanwhile, hope you get time to do something creative!
