BEYOND THE LAKE - DAY 29

September Painting Challenge - Day 29

" Beyond the Lake"

Mountains again, but in water-mixable oils...
Now, before you start, I know some people question
the use of these and say they are not such a good thing  as you are not gaining
anything by using them? 
What is all the fuss about...?  you definitely
cut out the smell of turps,... and yes I know all about odourless turps...
 But water is cheaper and far less fuss, but the purists don't like em...
Apart from the water and the turps tho seriously.....what is the difference?
 Can you tell an 'oil' painting  from a 'water based oil' painting? 
Just wondering.... I don't know if you can, can you?
By the way, do you see the huge octopus head in this painting.....
yup! me too....!!

September Painting Challenge - Day 28

"Monet's Bridge I "

Well this painting is self explanatory... kind of.... and yes, I
know it looks like teeth!!! But it's just the reflection in
the water! Yes I am going to redo this one, properly and
with the benefit of more time!

LILACS AND APPLE BLOSSOM - DAY 22

September Painting Challenge - Day 22

"Lilacs and Apple Blossom,
with Ceanothus"

Today's watercolour is a bunch of flowers I picked from the garden.
Lucky for me I had photographed these for a painting when
I did, or you would not be seeing it now. The Ceanothus with it's lovely
honey scent and beautiful blue colour, and the Lilacs are both always over far too soon.
The apple blossoms were blown away sooner than we would have liked.
But here they are in all their glory!

THE VILLAGE - DAY 20

September Painting Challenge - Day 20

"The Village"

Today's painting is a real place! 
A little village in South West of England that is very pretty 
and peaceful 
and very popular with tourists. 
This view attracted me as an artist due to the great 
variety of trees and plants, 
and also the variety of different buildings.
The village is a painter's paradise,
 I am just sorry I cannot tell you exactly where it is,
 I forgot it's name!

DAD'S SHED - DAY 16

September Painting Challenge Day 16

"Dad's Shed"

The focus of this painting are really the flowers, I wanted
to capture the beautiful dark crimson irises a colour which I have
not seen in irises before, and the variety colours in the
little window box which are spectacular!

SHARK TANK - DAY 14

September Painting Challenge Day 14

"Shark Tank "

This watercolour is inspired by the London Aquarium, and the
photo on the ticket we bought when we went there to see the sharks.
The Easter Island heads in the tank were also worth seeing as
well as the sharks!

SEA GARDEN - Day 2

September Painting Challenge Day 2

"Sea Garden"

For the second painting I decided to paint the scene from our aquarium at home, and added some shells instead of fish. Normally you cannot add sea shells to an aquarium as the minerals have an adverse affect on the fish... so you can only add sea shells to an aquarium in a painting..!!!
