Hello Friends! It's been awhile.
I took some time off from the computer. Ever find that just sometimes you need that?
I know I did. What to write, what's my audience looking for, Sometimes it's just plain pressure.
Just so everyone knows out there.....I blog for fun!!! That's all!
So this is what I have been up to.
I found my new love .....painting.....
I dedicate this grumpy cat to my niece since her cat passed.
Found my love in watercolour pencils. I use Derwent brand. Great pigment.
I don't mind sharing this with you, even though many out there like to keep their art mysterious.
Isn't she the cutest Pug. Our son Jim's Rosie!
Here I'm showing the beginning of Charlie, our other son Bill's British Bulldog.
I take a picture of my subject and then start tracing out the outline with my watercolour pencils
then continue painting it in. Don't you just love that face!
Meet Rosco! Another pet of Bill's, a Yellow Lab.
Here I used my pencils as well as watercolour paints. When using my paints I use Windsor Newton.
Isn't she the cutest! This is Gemma, a French Bulldog. Another pet of my Bill's.
Meet Juno the Siamese cat. This cat is my grandaughter's.
I took a course in soft pastels and got hooked. Loved how this one turned out.
Last up is Lucy, a Golden Retriever. Our daughter Jill's .
As you can see from the picture she is painted with my watercolour paints.
We all love out fur babies, don't we.
Next I'll get busy painting our beloved Fergus and let's not forget Benny!
Hope everyone's summer is off to a great start!
Love hearing from you all!
