A New Painting




Hi everyone, well this week I have been working on a new painting which I know looks very much like my painting from last week. I have been asked by quite a few people if my painting from last week was for sale. I'm afraid it's not as it was actually painted with myself and my boys (including hubby) in mind and is now hanging in our hallway! This new one was painted for my brother's beautiful partner which represents them and his girls. I hope she likes it.

I decided that this one didn't need dragonflies or anything else around it and concentrated more on the colours and shades. I have sketched quite a few different ideas for this style of art and will experiment with lots of colours, I find this type of art very therapeutic.

I don't normally post my paintings before the recipient has received it but Sian is actually living in Wales so I wanted her to see it before I posted it off!!!

Wow, those colors really stand out, Nicola! You seem to be quite bold with them these days... unlike me, the colors have shied away from mine! (^-^) oxx
