Had fun reacquainting myself with watercolour for this piece. Charles Reid's book 'Portrait Painting in Watercolor' really helped a lot. What I need is a lot more practice of course, so I'll definitely be doing more till I stop feeling it in my bones and inevitably switch mediums once again.
This piece has a beautiful deckled edge and is painted on 300gsm cold pressed (textured) watercolour paper.
First new art post of the year!.. Yay!.. Been experimenting with different watercolour skin pallets lately.. This is one of my favs so far!..
Hope you all had a grand celebration on New Years, and here's to an Amazing year ahead!..
'Hiya mates!,.. Okie, this is the 3rd and last of the Christmas Mince Pies Series!! Mince Pies are our family's favorite treat during the festive season and we are sure to make a big batch every year come Christmas time.
If you're not familiar with them, they are a traditional fruit based, sweet mincemeat, British Christmas special.
Though I think traditionally there was meat included there is no meat in the filling at all now except for suet, but even that has been replaced with a vegetarian subsitute which suits me great since I eat only plant based food nowadays anyways!.. :)
The 2nd of this series of Chrismas Mince Pie watercolours is finally complete! The 3rd and last is too and will be posted soon!.. I started the two back in January but with all the hoopla it was impossible to work on them again till recently.
I'm really glad they are complete as I see them as closing a chapter in my life and look forward to working more and more on work more consistent with my present progression as an artist!.. :)
Thanks for having a peek!.. :)
p.s. The first of this series can be seen at 'Mince Pies Watercolour'.
So tis not the season, I know, but I've been meaning to paint these homemade fellows since I took a pic of them hot out of the oven last Christmas..

Hi there, I went a digging today among some of my old travel pics and found one I took of this world heritage treasure.. Like many, Egyptology has always intrigued me and painting the beauty of these historic monuments is completely captivating..
Medium: Watercolour on Watercolour Paper

This is actually my second attempt at this image, taking lessons learnt from the first to create this little watercolour.. :)
Thanks for the visit!.. :)
