My first year birthday today

First birthday cupcake

WordPress first birthday

Today is my WordPress first birthday!!!

yippeee, I was nervous at first, but it has proved so inspirational. I did not know which way I would go with my blog, general craft, a bit of this and that, card making? But after painting for our hospice auction, I began painting again.

I have been inspired by others I have met through this thank you all, those I follow, and those that kindly have followed me. To another happy blogging year,  I hope to try and sell some work this year, it would be good if all this practice could take a step Upto the next level?



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.

    • Thank you Laura, you too have improved in leaps and bounds since I started following you. It just goes to show, the more practice, the better you get. I keep thinking that I should have a style, but I just love experimenting, working out how different media interact. The only sure thing, is I will stick to animals ( which will include the odd, two legged,pink body painting).

      • Thanks, Rebecca! I really am glad you are seeing improvement. I do practice quite a lot. I never just sit and watch tv, I always sketch while watching. It’s amazing how much art can be squeezed into a day just by doing this. Your animals are really beautiful and I do think you have a unique style. That’s something I feel I really need to work on – being more expressive with my marks. I get to caught up in getting the form just right, but maybe that’s because I still feel like I’m new at this. There are so many things out there I’ve never even tried to draw. I really enjoy your work.
