I have had a really great weekend of painting, I started with my safety blanket of a hare head, and a small hare A4 size, both on 140lb. I bought a small A4 watercolour block, I don’t usually paint on A4, but decided to give it a try, as I am thinking of making a big step and selling some paintings. Up to now the only paintings I have sold are, to friends and family that have liked something I have done, or friends and family requesting a commision piece, usually of pets. The other sales have been through a charity auction for our local hospice, which thankfully my submission made better than I thought it would, which was a great ego boost, even if I didn’t personally benefit to my pocket, I benefitted in having a beaming smile for weeks.
I also bought some new watercolour paint ( to compliment my fav colours of the week which I had)
Windsor and Newton prof series 1 violet
Windsor and Newton prof series 4 cobalt violet
Windsor and Newton artists series 4 cobalt turquoise
Windsor and Newton artists series A transparent turquoise ( already had)
Windsor and Newton cotman series 1 turquoise (already had)
here are my two hares, Cutsie Hare and Wishful Wait
