    MOUNTAINS triptych art This is something I was talked into trying, when I saw the size of boards I wanted to run a mile, after painting in the sky, I drew the design onto tracing paper and placed on the boards to get the correct placings and then let the paint lead the way, the more I did with the mountains the happier I became. Parts one and two work well and parts two and three work well. Also. I can mix and match if I need a change lol.. Acrylics is definitely a NO NO for me, but will have to do another or throw away the paint. size of total paintings together measures 150cms x 70cmz I used interactive acrylics. TRIPTYCH MOUNTAINS

    World Watercolour Group™. FUCHSIA .... This has been rescued from my file 13, i studied it and decided it was definitely flat and dull. i have had a go at improving by lifting the colour to give a shine to the leaves and a little bounce to the flowers, it looks a little better now . A3 watercolours branch of Fuschia

    World Watercolour Group™ My Amaryllis Nursery------ A very quick sketch on awful paper of my nursery of very fast growing plants, I keep looking at them and every time I look they have grown another inch, so I grab the first bit of paper and did the sketches. just as a record and for my own research, I will catch up with them properly when the flowers start....

    World Watercolour Group™ POPPIES ON SILK GONGBI STYLE done with Chinese ink and brushes. started at a workshop on Saturday. I drew the poppies on paper first then transferred to the silk with ground ink and very fine Chinese brushes. not sure whether i will continue with painting this or make a new silk painting due to problems with crinkling on the silk, i think i will try to stretch the silk first before starting the painting.

    World Watercolour Group™ My Amaryllis Nursery ---- i now have five bulbs growing in all different colours and stages but as far as i know only one is a double flower, my first posting (last week) of first two of bulbs have now double in size, it is very hard to keep up with them. these are the slower growing ones, and the top one I bought on Tuesday, i find that after Christmas is the best time to buy these bulbs because they are nearly always half price and i think they need rescuing as they start to grow inside the box.....

    World Watercolor Group?. Rekindled Memories --ELEPHANT WALK---This painting reminds me of our last trip in January 2017 to Northern Kenya Africa. we went out every morning at the crack of dawn and drive for a couple of hours to the river and wait for the Elephants to come. we would see a couple, then a few more .eventually we were surrounded by elephants, it was wonderful they would come very close and sniff at us , we felt no threat from these gentle giants as they played in the mud and water, then they would go for a sand wash, this we did get a little sandy, but we just sat and took hundreds of photos, even the guide said he had never been that close to an elephant before, it was funny to see him take a few selfies with elephants close up behind him.i am sure that the elephants did remember us, as by the third day they took no notice of us except to trump and say morning, the babies were really funny trying to get up the slippery banks but needing the help from mum from behind. I know how David Attenborough must feel when he is on location in the bush, it is a wonderful feeling to be that close to the giants of Africa..... ELEPHANT WALK
