Mindful watercolour painting :Lilacs

 


What better feeling to pick a couple of Lilacs in flower

Sit and look at the flowers

Close your eyes and imagine the shapes
Take in the scent, bring back memories or just imagine a warm sunny day.

Try out a few colours in your palette
Cobalt Violet was one of mine

Look at the flowers take in the smells and just let the brush loaded with paint
Make a few shapes, lifting on and off the paper.

Step back and look at the beauty of the flower and paint a few more shapes with a stronger hue

Enjoy the moment.


Here is a link to my demonstration of painting Lilacs

 Dob Gill, Thirlmere

Painted on Canvas 

Size 24 x 24 inches

The rough and forgotten circuit of Thirlmere

Hidden gems amongst an old rooted path

Delights of nature around every bay

Pure and barely disturbed

Ancient footbridges

across gurgling becks and falls.

Blencathra from Bowscale Fell Original painting






Blencathra from Bowscale Fell
Painted in Oils on Canvas
Size 24 x 24 inches
SOLD




 Along the dry fell we walk, deep Turquoise water far below.
Glimmering Bowscale Tarn, embraced in  a wall of rocks and scree.
Ahead, dark and foreboding, Blencathra
 Razor sharp edges, enticing climbers and hardy souls.
Cotton grass blowing delicately, in the warm breeze amid this wild open fell.

Stage One Watercolour for Beginners




I've struggled this week as I'm sure you all have. My way to escape is to paint and I've put together a little video to show you how easy and relaxing watercolour painting is. I want us all to stay positive and healthy 
I'm hoping to do regular video's showing the joys and fun of painting. I hope you enjoy it and it's a perfect time to get those paints out now.
