Trying out new watercolour paints and a couple of pastel paintings

Good morning friends,  followers and visitors,  I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas. I was very lucky to receive a set of 24 tubes of watercolour paints from my husband so just had to try them out. I have always used pans but found that I got a stronger depth of colour with the tubes. So here is my quick little painting which I have turned into a greetings card:

I also painted a couple of pastel pictures which I turned into greetings cards too

This fairy was inspired by one of Linda Ravenscroft's paintings 

The ballerina was inspired by The Frugal Crafter's painting

Thank you for visiting my blog and may I wish you all a very happy new year.
Hugs Lainie xx
