Been Painting

Hello...
My it's turned cold here... Autumn has definitely arrived

I've not had any inclination to make much lately, I spent 2 days doing the Thursday Club stuff and the evening was manic!  I've been itchy to try something different. I'm no artist by any means but today I was doodling, trying to draw a boat and it turned into this


It's not marvelous but just a little something different - it's just done on ordinary (inexpensive) cardstock so I only gave it a light wash of watercolour


I love boats and anything sea related ... What do you think? 


Maybe too bland huh?

Then whilst I was looking for something in one of the many cupboards in this house, would you believe I came across a pack of acrylic paints - unopened, never used! Well I had to do something...So after going through a few things on Pinterest I came across 'How to paint a beach' Here.... Well, I deliberated whether to share this 'cos it's my first attempt but what the heck ... here you go


Hee hee, I had fun though, and Hubby thought it was fine

I'll be back tomorrow with my post for Our Beautiful World which incidentally has the word prompt Paint, then I am off for a little holiday early Tuesday morning so I'll catch up with you in a week or so ...

Take care and thanks so much for your visit

You don't give yourself nearly enough credit, my friend! You are indeed an artist--in many ways! I just love your drawing & painting--wonderful work! I'd frame that first attempt--hubby is right! Enjoy your holiday--hope you get some sun as I know you love warmth!

I think your boat looks amazing that's what! I CANNOT draw. That's why I like stamps. LOL Great job with the acrylics too. It's always fun to dabble with other media and see what you like. Have fun on your holiday! Hugs!

I think both your paintings are fantastic! You continually amaze me. Sheesh, and all I've done is turn my stamp room into a mess, trying to create a more creativity-inducing space. Think it will work? I hope so!

Good for you, Ros, trying something new! Art is subjective, so anything I would say is mute! Wonderful that you want to paint, I love it! Happy days are spent in the world of art!

Cold, oh, that's a pity? Please, come over here, the weather is really fine with sunshine and high temperatures (-:

Doodling? Wow, I thought you used a stamp. The boat is amazing, your card pretty. Love it!!!

I love your card with the boat, sure is serene and calm.
You are multi-talented Ros, love your first try on that beach scene!

Stella said...

Enjoy your vacation sweetie and I hope you can soak up some sun and lovely temperatures. Your card with the boat is true gem in a perfect CAS design. And your drawing is perfect! Your painted see is just as gorgeous; wow!
XXXXX

This can NOT be your first attempt, you must be kidding! And your boat or the card as a whole doesn't look bland at all - it's got some early morning misty feel about it somehow.

You look like an artist to me ;). Beautiful projects, love! They make me long for a trip to the ocean. Sigh. Gotta love my land-locked state!
