Sunday Sketches

Hi everyone,

Well spring has certainly sprung over here and it's been so nice having some warmer weather I even spent the afternoon yesterday painting on the deck. I bought some wood and have begun a series of paintings.

This is what I painted whilst sitting in the sun yesterday, it is called 'Letting go is good for the soul'.

 I started with this sketch of an idea........
 Then painted her on wood........

It was a lovely afternoon.

I've also been working on a new sign for my market stall. I'm hoping to do a market next month now that the weather has warmed up. I need something eye catching which shows people what I'm all about and I'm hoping that this pretty lady will do the trick!


Last but not least this is my current work in progress on wood. This I'm I'm going for a more realistic portrait and I want to try bleeding the paint into the wood. Like I've done with this water solulable graphite stick!

Right off to bed now, hope you are all well and I shall be visiting this week! :0)

Oh Nicola! Your girls are so gorgeous! LOVE the big eyes and lashes here - and the ponytails are brilliant. It's great catching up with you and seeing your new work - and I'm sorry it took me so long to respond to your visit - I almost missed it altogether. So sorry :0 xoxo
