pause... and paws

Bernese Mountain Dog - so lovely. I thought I'd title it pause, because he's taking a little break. And then I thought... oh... paws! So naturally the title became "pause... and paws" Heehee. I do like painting dogs, especially when they have darks and lights in their fur colours, that way there's lots of colour contrast.

Thanks so much to everyone who joined my Zoom Flower Painting Demo!! It went great. And here is the end result. I'm very happy with it. I ended up adding the little red bud after all - otherwise I didn't change a thing. Cheers to all those familiar faces and so nice to meet new people too!! See you on Zoom soon.

This little yellow cup is my new favourite still life object. So cute! These flowers from my garden sat perfectly in it. You can check out the time lapse video of me painting this one on my Instagram.

I got to indulge in my favourite colour... again! Opera Pink (yummy), which I floated onto the page next to some warm reds. Then, all those cool greens and blues in the jar, those floaty bits, so abstract and fun to paint. Yummy, yummy, yummy!

I finished planting my garden today! It was the perfect weather for it - not a cloud in the sky and there was a constant breeze. Ahh. The circle of spring.

Today's coat is a lot different than yesterday's big yellow one! ; )
This is the first time one of my "In Conversation" paintings has the subjects standing. No one is sitting at cafes right now! #doh.
Another very splish-splash watercolour. There really is no medium like it.
The time-lapse film of this one is over on my Instagram page -
