Found a pretty and delicate design of some Fuchsias so decided to have a play around, turned out ok but have got problems getting a decent photo and its too large for my scanner but it gives you some idea
Am really excited today as have joined the tutorials of Anna Mason and her amazing botanical studies just hope I can keep up and manage not to disgrace myself as my paintings are a bit naff compared to many but I enjoy them which is what counts when you get to my age

a couple more watercolours

had a little play around and came up with this

this is a lonely little fuchsia that I found had fallen from one of my hanging baskets

Back painting again

After a long break from painting I have now started off again and have just finished these two, one is of the island in Venice and it  is just so bright and cheerful looking I just had to paint it

 and the other is of a sea/landscape of Antibes in the South of France. and for a change I made it a watercolour and ink

 I had great fun painting them and am now pondering over what to paint next, to either finish off several of the ones I have got half painted or to start something new so only time will tell I am so out of practice so need to get a going and hope I can show some improvement with the next ones
