I am a bad blogger and I apologize for the long silence. I took a long break after the craft show in March and then decided to turn my creative attention to painting. I used to paint as a child but am only returning to it now in earnest.
I am still only learning watercolour and find it both frustrating and very rewarding. The first painting is part of a building in the main square in Hallstatt, Austria visited many years ago.
The two flower paintings are from flowers and blossom picked in my garden this spring.
Painting, for me, is a deeply personal affair and I have to feel emotionally connected to my subject matter. I have a long long list of places that hold significance for me and reference photos I took over the years to help me remember them. Hopefully I will be able to paint a good few of these before the summer is over. At the same time I have an even longer list of flowers and plants that I want to paint. I think I will be busy!
