The Bubble Jar

I was given a challenge to throw some paint at a page and incorporate it into a painting.
This is what I created:

The Sansevieria Series: III

This is the third and final in the series.
This version of the mother-in-law's tongue plant has been painted using Inktense blocks.

The Sansevieria Series: II

In this version, I used watercolour and a medium called aquapasto, made by Winsor & Newton.
When used in conjunction with watercolour, it increases the viscosity of the wash - and the resultant effect is like painting with oils.

For someone who can't use oils, this is a fabulous medium.

The Sansevieria Series I

I wanted to see how different mediums affected how an item was portrayed in art. I picked a sansevieria (mother-in-law's tongue) as my subject, and set about experimenting.

This first painting is in watercolour and ink - a pen and wash.

I've decided to have a series of three. Do come back and see the others.

My husband asked if I would paint a picture for him. He wanted an abstract, galaxy type of painting, with bright colours in it.

This is for you, dearest.


 Unusually for me, it's a full sheet of watercolour paper!

The Westport Club

There's an award winning cafe in Cupar, Fife called 1B Westport Cafe.
This is one of their most famous lunch dishes, the club sandwich, painted in watercolour, by me!

If you visit Scotland, be sure to drop in to Cupar and try one for yourself!
