February brings the rain

To thaw the frozen lakes again

This is the second painting depicting February in the rhyme which continues with my theme of creating a picture which represents each month in the nursery rhyme 'January brings the snow'
This time I used Acrylic paint on canvas.

I hope you like it and will visit my blog again to see each month depicted in art.

January brings the snow

Well I am sure most of us in the UK have seen some snow over the past day or so, so I thought my little watercolour was very apt. My intention is to produce a calender of my artwork based on the nursery rhyme 'January brings the snow' each month will have a painting to depict the rhyme.

I was inspired by a lovely photograph on the Paint my Photo website

I hope you like this painting and the ones to follow. If you have any questions please leave them in the comments box and I will be glad to answer them.

A few more pet portraits

As I haven't posted for a while, I thought I would share a few portraits that have kept me busy since last time. Most of them were commissioned for gifts and I jope you like them.

As you can see there are quite a few and I still have more to do.  All my portraits are in pastel on Hahnemule velour paper. I use Sennelier, Rembrandt, Unison pastels and Derwent pastel pencils.
Thank you kindly for visiting today and please feel free to comment.
