Have I Shown You This?

I'm not sure if I have blogged this painting before.....I did it quite a while ago, before I had a blog...before I had a computer perhaps. It has been painted in watercolour, with a few touches of coloured pencil to add texture here and there. It's not for sale, as I used a photo from a book or a magazine as reference and really don't want to fall foul of copyright. Instead, it graces the wall of my living room - I really like how the watercolour has worked on this and it was a huge pleasure to paint at the time.

In the meantime, I have nothing current to show at the moment - the double horse portrait is ongoing, quite near completion. I am knitting a shawl, which is painstaking and only half way there. I am awaiting a new Japanese pattern book for felt animals.....if it is half as good as it looked on the computer screen, I'm going to be having fun over the next few weeks!

That is brilliant - I had a look at the close up and the detailing is eye watering, the composition is great too.

I might, if I'm lucky be able to pay a visit to an art gallery over the weekend. :-)
Might even see something as great as this. :-) x x x
