    Great idea! The mistakes all fly away, and you don't have to wash the car so often!

Just back from 3 weeks in Ireland! What a magical green - oh so green! - land. As well as emerald green, the hillsides were purple and yellow with lovely tiny alpine flowers. And every hill and meadow had its sprinkling of sheep. Here is one of the watercolour sketches that I painted while away. And of course there are many more photos that I hope to paint from.


Go For the Bold

Tree Painting"Playing it safe can be the riskiest choice we ever make." Sarah Ban Breathnoch

It's that bold stroke, that unusual technique that you would never have found if you hadn't dared to take chances, that can make the difference between a nice painting and a fabulous one. Sure, there will be the ugly ducklings - but that very special painting may be waiting just the other side of boldness too. Give yourself permission to try something new and daring with your painting.

One good way to do this could be to sign up for the upcoming John Lovett painting course. Lots of new ideas and approaches there!
