Back In Time...
I am working on several things at the moment, but unfortunately - and frustratingly - nothing I can show. So here's a trip down memory lane to a few of my early paintings which still hide in my portfolio. This is a pair of scarlet ibis - I just love painting birds in any shape or form, but particularly brightly coloured ones.
A scarlet macaw - again with the red! I don't wear it, rarely have anything in the house that is red, but I do like a red bird or two! Another watercolour.
A sleeping rhino getting a bit of grooming. This hangs in our living room - I like the nuances of colour and texture in the rhino's skin. It was great fun to paint and I think that shows. Watercolour also.
A very long time ago, we went to St. Lucia for an unforgettable holiday. W took a trip in the rain forest there and this painting is one of a few that I did when I got home. Watercolour again, but with a very limited palette.
Having looked at these, I think it is time I went through my portfolio and put some of the oldies but goodies up for sale rather than have them languish hidden away.
On the needles - still that big cardigan
