Going Back To The Beginning

I've decided to tweek my Blog and have temporarily used a photograph of Lands End for the backdrop. Sarah Baird's blog looked so good, I had to borrow the layout. I will though replace the photograph with a piece of suitable new Art when I get myself organised.

Although I intend to work with pastels, here are a couple of watercolours I did some time ago. I was really enthusiastic about the medium before I started college, but dropped it in favour of three dimensional work. I once attended a workshop with my painting hero Ray Campbell Smith in Tonbridge Wells. I adopted his pallete as I admired the look it gave to landscapes.

Gosh I really like these watercolours. The reflections are brilliant!
I like the rugged backdrop! Wishing I was there!

Cheers sarah:) Gave up watercolours before getting really proficient. Mainly because everyone's doing it:)
May return to it one day.

You should go back to them Chris, I like these - great skies! Many thanks for the moving card, gave me a bit of a jump when I took it out of the envelope and the camel wobbled at me! (I know, I should get out more...)

LOL! The camel made my eyes go a bit weird by the time I was happy with it:) I'm glad you got the card ok:)

Re: watercolours, thanks for your comment. I'm going to spend a few weeks trying different things and see what I'm happiest with:)
