Valentines roses

Painted these roses, used metallic and plain paint, different effects depending on how the light hits the painting. I used quite opaque plain paints so they would show up on the black cartridge paper I used. Also it is part of my #bandofsketchers picture, the prompt was valentines day…

Watercolours

A couple of watercolours I’ve done over the last two days after watching a talk about using them. I wish I had stretched the paper as it curled because of the amount of water I used. The first is called ‘Why don’t cats keep still?’, basically it’s my boy cat washing, but he was constantly moving, the second is ‘lamp’. It’s the view of the back of our living room with a standard lamp and dream catcher with reflections. I used Arteza metallic watercolours and Windsor and Newton Watercolours to paint these sketches.
