Water colour poppies demonstration

BlogPublished April 27, 2013 at 14:42 3 Comments

I have been asked if I can demonstrate my watercolour poppies for the lighthouse art group in June, and thought I would post up a previous poppies in the making as an example of what it will look like to those watching, although it is likely to be less watery as this one, because it will be on an easel, and is going to run! it’s not a topic you can paint flat as the 40 or so members won’t be able to see! I am really looking forward to it.

A Misty March Morning

BlogPublished March 27, 2012 at 21:05 No Comments

I went out and about with the camera this morning for an hour, and stopped at a place I have passed but never paused at before, not far from Upton, in Poole. It was wonderfully misty today (I adore mist) and the roads were quiet, almost erie. I saw some lovely distance shots of trees vanishing well into the mist, so here is one, coming to a watercolour painting near you soon 😉




It is the pool of water I see frequently, and it was just revealing it’s secrets through the mist when I got there. A few minutes more and the mist had all but lifted.




On walking back to the car I passed a lovely place full of mini daffodils so dainty and bright, all covered with moisture clinging to them.




More often than not, when there is lingering mist about, it is not a morning I have a car to appreciate it! so it was bliss to do this today :-)

Teacup with Blossoms

When the sun is shining and in the afternoon on a nice spring day, I get the opportunity to take some shots that really appeal to me. I love pinks and blues and aquas all together, so these shots make me smile.

Pink Tulips

I was given some stunning pink tulips on monday night, what better thing to do than to take some outdoor shots of them. I want to build up my collection of greetings cards, so that I can have a nice selection for craft shows coming up, as well as for Dorset Art Weeks next year.




Cherry Blossom has bloomed

At long last, the cherry blossom has bloomed! I have been waiting for this for what feels like forever, as I missed the opertunity to capture them last year. This is one of my favorite flowers because of it’s delicate and fragile petals.
