Watercolour Paintings 67

Here is the latest batch for June. Once again I ask if any mistakes I have made you can correct please advise me. I believe all these paintings are watercolour but cannot be absolutely sure so again - let me know so I can correct any errors. I always work on the principal of trying to present the widest possible range of watercolours to show the versatility of this wonderful medium, together with bringing to you the wonderful artists who proliferate across the globe. I do admit that my particular tastes also feature.

Most Recent Paintings

Here are my latest over the last week or two. I have scrapped a number! All 16" x 12"unless otherwise stated.

Hares seem a very popular subject at the moment, both paintings and figurines. There are some very interesting paintings around , mostly by female artists, which inspired me to try my own.  I'm no sexist!

This is another, in this case,  inspired by the American artist Bev Jozwiak who does lots of Jackdaw paintings, and very good they are, in-fact sensationally good.

"Big Boy"


"Where are my wives"

I've actually discarded this one.

Latest Big cat.

Another Bird 12" x 9"



"Mountain Man'

Sennelier Watercolours from Great Art

This is too good to miss!

Great Art have a very good offer on Sennelier watercolours. This is 25% off and brings the prices to an affordable level, much cheaper than current Daniel Smith and Winsor & Newton  for example - and most other leading makes. Great Art have a minimum purchase of I think £39.95p to get free delivery. You just need to check by 'googling "Great Art" and it will appear. Sennelier have pans and half pans and also 10ml and 21ml tubes. I'm very tempted!

Watercolour Paintings 66

Here are the latest batch for May. With the dreadful state the World is in with the Covid-19 pandemic:  the UK in a terrible situation. Arguably  the pandemic has been badly handled  in the UK, and this applies to some others, while countries like New Zealand, Greece  and South Korea, to name just three have shown the rest of us up. I normally avoid politics on here but things are too serious to be mealy mouthed. May I wish whoever reads this and their families are safe and best wishes for the future. I make the following proviso. I think all the paintings shown are watercolour but is is possible some aren't. Also I am having difficulty in finding some artists names as the sources I obtain them from don't say.  Any mistakes  are entirely my own fault and corrections welcome. I have posted a bumper lot to relieve the gloom (a little). Some wonderful artists,  great paintings and a wide variety of styles and subjects. The Wonderful World of Watercolour. Enjoy!
