Winter White













I went to my friend Pats last week and she showed me how to paint onto plaster. After a couple of experiments I quite liked the background I eventually came up with. I have painted some white grasses onto perspex and added some beads and wire. As with all my paintings on perspex it is quite hard to photograph because of reflections so have made a little video of it..view it on my youtube channel here.



It was my birthday the other day and my sons bought me lots of watercolour paints so I will soon be having a go at watercolour painting. I havent painted with watercolours before so have been watching a dvd by Frank Clarke that I got from the library..I just love his Irish friendly accent at showing the very basics of watercolour painting which you can then adapt to your own style..view the link here and dont blame me if you want to take painting up too after watching him!
