A new year and new painting ideas

Alpine Retreat painted in Watercolours

I painted this little snow scene, looking out of the window one morning before breakfast.
 No sketching, a very limited palette and a handful of salt crystals.
I think the couple that feature below live here.
In a perfect world!!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland painted in Watercolours.

I do look forward to a new year and often feel it is a positive time for painting.
A clean painting desk, ready for new ideas.
Here are a few of my new year resolutions

Check spelling!!
Get the Oils out and paint big
The sketchbook needs filling
Get out in the field, I love painting en plein.
Get on with it!! stop thinking about it, life is too short.
But on that note, do think about the brush strokes, tonal values and experiment more.

A very happy new year and thank you for taking the time to pop in and visit my art blog.

I look forward to sharing loads of new ideas and glorious painting locations with you in 2016.
