Another Watercolour

Good morning...

It's a real autumnal morning here ...It's damp and chilly but the colours are glorious in the intermittent sunlight.

I've been trying to teach myself to draw and paint in watercolour - It's a slow progression, I'm not a natural but it's a change from making cards and something to do when inspiration for a card is just not there... So today I'm sharing a painting I did recently and I'm hoping that when I look back in a years' time I will see an improvement Lol!


At least my boats are looking more like boats and my sky is improving...


I've ordered a few proper brushes instead of the cheap ones I've been using and I'm looking forward to trying them out...

Pat is coming over today and who knows, maybe we'll get the paints out.

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by

Hi Ros! Just stopped in to say thank you for the warm welcome back comment. I hope you had a wonderful month! What a wonderful beach painting, love the cliff in the background! It's great to be back, see you again soon. hugs :)

Seems like you are doing brilliantly Ros. I love your little scene...I think I should ask for your autograph now before you are famous...your painting should be signed and framed...something to look back on!

Stella said...

This shows how talented you are:) It's wonderful to try new things! I know you love watercolouring and painting and I am a fan. This is lovely! Have fun with Pat; enjoy your afternoon together!

I'm always jealous when you say Pat is coming over--wishing I could join you 2! Your painting is amazing, in my book, Ros! Love the sky & your boats certainly do look like boats! Have fun!

Wow! I'm impressed!

Practice makes perfect, but I have to say I think you're doing a darn good job! You might be more of a natural than you realize. I'll just keep on coloring my stamps, I guess.

WOW! Gorgeous! You are a really talented lady! The progression will be interesting. LOVE this cause I am a sucker for water and boats and beautiful skies!

Darlene said...

Well I for one this this is AMAZING! I couldn't hand draw a stick figure let alone a beautiful scene like this ... so I'm truly impressed with your creation! Keep up the good work! Yes VERY FALL here in Ohio too ... but you know what comes next! Uuugh! LOL

I love seeing your water color creations, Ros! They are so serene of the sea, which is so pretty to look at! I think you do a wonderful job! The weather here is rainy and a bit chilly! A good day to stay in and craft!:-) Enjoy your time with your friend, Pat!
