This watercolour painting is a welcome to spring. Of course there was a little snowstorm the other day here in East Anglia to underline that spring is trying to start, but winter doesn’t want to leave just yet.
I used the Fabriano Artistico 12″ x 9″ HP 300 gsm for this one. I am a bit undecided about this paper. It sometimes sort of dissolves when I am generous with water or try to lift paint by adding clean water, even though I use a soft brush and is careful not to scrub too hard. Otherwise it is smooth and nice, but dries a bit too fast for me.
The new website is now live. That means I have to learn how to use it. My tech person has uploaded all images from my old site, and a few more, and it looks like that has worked, though I need to go through them and add titles and text as needed.
I have managed to post a new image (Twilight rider) to the gallery so that’s a success.
In other news, I’m waiting for author copies of the last book I worked on (Belly Full Soup), and have started working on a new book.
