Water Colour - The Painted Rose

Hello everyone 😊

I have caught a bug!

A bug called water colour painting!

I recently visited a close friend who has some STUNNING roses growing in her garden.

I took some photo's for inspiration

Dianne's Roses

I have been working with water colours over the last week for another blog that will go LIVE on the 17th of Dec 2017.

I have always had a tendency to paint or draw, but many years ago I aquired a brain injury that dulled that side of my personality. 
I have found that side of my craftiness has resurfaced for short periods of time over the last few years while card making. . 
The last few weeks that "URGE or NEED" to paint has grown Soooo much stronger.
I finally gave into it yesterday and started a small project, but with serious intent.
I thought, why not paint a small image and mount it as a card.
And to tell the truth water colour is the easiest and most forgiving medium to restart my painting efforts.

I admit I still have a loooong way to go before I am at the level I felt I was many years ago, but I am over the moon to know that I still have a drop of talent left.

Below is a shot of the near finished work before final touches and mounting.

Now to hopefully keep painting and improving on my efforts.

In Progress

Below is the finished card.
I do hope you like it.

I am seriously thinking I might keep this card! I feel an emotional attachment developing hahaha. Downside of art.

I have a list of all colours used to create my water colour with, in the carousel below..
The carousel is linked directly to my store

Thank you so very much for visiting me today.

  2. I don't have any brain issues (that I know of) and I can't paint like that. Absolutely gorgeous!
