A Year’s sketches

I’ve been practising with watercolour paints.  I’ve so much  yet to learn about mixing colours.

The pardalotes in the gum tree are a bit faint. I was inspired by a painting in an Artist magazine. The artist is Meaghan Roberts.

The gum flowers on the right was an experiment by me to use a fan shaped brush to try and get some detail for the blossoms.

  1. Clever you Maureen – these are lovely watercolours 🙂 x

  2. I really like this one! What kind of birds are they? They’re such pretty colours.

  3. Gosh, both of those look like magazine illustrations to me! They are so beautiful!

    • Ah, you are sweet, Susan. The originals I used were in an art magazine.
