This is an old water colour that I did........it does not hang anywhere as I am not sure I like it.
I did not draw a picture. I just painted and let it develop. Probably a mistake. There is not much colour there and the bird was a mistake. I was trying to put some "life" into it.
I used salt to make the foreground. Not much to it really. So sits in a corner hiding.
This next one I have done several times and can not get it right
Laura has one version of it. This is called "shadow of my mothers house" it is from a photo taken from mums bedroom window. It is one I have done nothing with. I did it a couple more times without the shadow. I have overdone it. I think I might try again. I do like the subject and the view and it has meaning for me. SO.............maybe I will try it again.
The next one is a shadow painting. It reminds me of dad fishing so.......again, it is one to redo.
It was done on an old piece of paper rather than watercolour paper, so is not any good. I just got the idea down on paper. I have a few pictures like that where I just got the idea down. I do want to do that one again properly.
Another in that category is this one.
That is another very very old picture I did on a scrap of old paper. It is of a piece of land I pass now and then and for some reason I am drawn to it. So I drew it quickly and painted it so I could remember to do it again some day. Some day...........
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
