Feeling tired, wishing I had more time to paint, lost mojo!

In my previous post I said I was feeling tired, well it does show when I have a lack of time and I loose my mojo. I also have a poorly cat at the moment, and after two visits to the vet she is not much better ( nor my purse, when it’s about £100 with every visit with treatment……I think my mojo was left at the vets) ?

Here are my rushed tired paintings, they might not be good, but it takes my mind to another place, and it is relaxing, so who cares, I paint for me!

The horse is watercolour, and the cow is derwent tinted charcoal.

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.

  1. I love them both. Very contemplative and gentle soul hearted feeling in both. Wishing your cat feels better soon and you get your well-deserved rest.


  2. Thank you……maybe it’s a reflection of how I feel at the moment, poorly cat is sleeping, if no improvement I will be back to vets in a week, to give them some more pocket money!!! ( a wage to me)

  3. I hope your cat is better soon. We paid a similar fee at the vet and got no answers. I really like the horse and the colors used. Very nice. The colored charcoal is interesting. I have something similar but have not had time to experiment. Enjoy looking at your work. Your love of animals shows

  4. Aww me too, she is up and restless now, I am not sure the vets will get to the bottom of it, I just hope it all sorts out for itself, but that is wishful thinking.
    The blues and turquoise with browns are my fav colours of the moment, after treating myself to a tube of turquoise paint, it features regularly…..planning a moose next with brown and a lighter turquoise. You should try the pencils, it is quite a quick process, well compared to the speed I work at with other media, and easy to correct mistakes to some extent, even lights over dark.

  6. These are both gorgeous!!! I’d have never known you weren’t feeling that great.

    You and I both have sick kitties. I feel for you. I’m feeling like a very worn out nurse. It’s very hard to get a cat to eat and take medicine when it wants neither. And as you say, the vet bills are ridiculous. I hope your kitty is straightened out soon but your artwork still shines!

  7. Awww I hope your cat feels better soon, mine is at least taking both her medicines, although not willingly, and it has ended up all over me a couple of times! Hopefully I will get chance to paint tonight, also trying to wipe my Mac to sell it, and that is not behaving either, grrr to technology.
    Hugs to your kitty xx
