Two quick greeting cards

I decided to use the Saunders sample papers I was given as mini paintings mounted onto greeting cards, they are only 5×5″ and vary from 90lb to 300 lb, coldpress, hotpress and rough. I am so impressed that I will buy this paper again, all Barr the 90 lb….it’s still ok, but I like more weight to my paper. These little paintings were from Sktchy app again, I just can’t get enough of the app, it’s great to use after work when I just don’t want to think too much, but still want to paint, full of inspiration πŸ˜€. I am loving that I have stumbled upon some fellow bloggers on the app, and welcome some new ones. Here are two I did the other evening.

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.
