A painting


I had the urge to do some painting last night. I'd had a busy day writing, and then I popped out to see my friend who is not well, and I just felt like coming home and chilling out with my watercolours. I'd loved the Emma Bridgewater Christmas catalogue which dropped onto the mat the other week, and was really inspired by her photo of a seasonal dresser. I decided to merge her dresser image with bits of my own dresser, and this is what I came up with. Usually, I paint a watercolour and then go over the top of it with pen and ink, but I wanted to try and just use paint this time as the other method looks very flat sometimes. I think this is more three dimensional. 
I did this while the rest of the household watched a football match. I get my head phones, plug my iPod in and off I go, painting to music!

  4. I love this. One of your cards I sent to a friend in Canada she framed to hang in her kitchen. Sorry I haven't been commenting but all my comments wouldn't post. x

    1. HI Karen, oh that's lovely to hear that your friend liked her card. Don't worry, I think less people are commenting now as they're transferring to Instagram, which is, of course, a lot more instant! I am going to keep doing the blog sometimes, though, I miss it when I don't.

    1. Hi, actually no I don't have any Bridgewater - that's from her Christmas catalogue. I've imagined a collection which includes a bit of her new and my old. All my china is old...I can't bring myself to buy new however beautiful the design!
