A trip to the coast

Work commitments this week have slowed down my painting....My large canvas was getting me very frustrated, at this stage I put the canvas away for a week or two and then return to it with new eyes....In the meantime I got out my watercolour box and doodled around. Usually I mix watercolour with other mediums, or rip the painting up and use it for backgrounds to acrylic collage, but in this painting watercolour is combined with just a bit of watercolour pencil. A couple of years ago I visited Marrakesh...this watercolour was based on a photo I took on a day trip away from the searing heat to the coast...I love textiles and the colours and textures of this market display fill me with excitement!! I think I bought one of those bags, or one very similar.....and if I had taken a larger suitcase probably would have brought back a few more!



My number five is a sunny September sky filled with the red taken this morning from Morrison's car park!!

  1. Such beautiful muted, gentle colours. The painting is extra interesting because the colours are so different from those used for Marrakesh, and shoe a different side to the place and people. Love it.


Thank you for stopping by, I love to hear from you.
