Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Umber



moon river....



calm..




I have just used two paints in my latest watercolour paintings. With these I wanted to leave out paint and have more white showing and use less paint. I am very pleased with the way these have turned out and am quite surprising myself!..the secret as with anything is keep practising....
(my husband has just come in and has told me to keep doing this and not change to something else like I usually do!! so expect a lot more watercolours this month! I think one of the reasons why I took up watercolours was that I could prove to myself that I could do "proper" paintings as well as abstracts, mixed media etc etc)

Ok, I am officially in awe of your talent! I've tried watercolors off and on since I was a kid (and that's a LOT of years) and can't come close to what you'ce mastered in a few short weeks! Hats off to you!

I love looking at these!

great paintings Lorraine - do you think your husband is subtly telling you he doesn't understand your grungy altered art?
