Sorry about the reflection from the flash. Will try to do better (with OH's help) soon. :))

whoa! I love that!! That is (to my eye) 'Japanese' style, which I have always adored. Sheila...I do like the flash...it looks like a beacon of light in the painting! :))

Have you ever painted crockery? ;))

13 Feb, 2012

 

That is wonderful Sheila, You are a very clever lady.

13 Feb, 2012

 

Ooh Karen - thank you. I haven't ever painted crockery, have you? Quite fancy it though. :))

13 Feb, 2012

 

Sheila that is so reminiscent of "Japanese" style as Karen said.Could see this transfered to a large plate!The limited palette works so well! Lovely! Thanks for doing this!

13 Feb, 2012

13 Feb, 2012

13 Feb, 2012

 

Thank you so much Michaella, Paul and Poppy.

Thank you too Meadow, but I have to confess doing it from a picture, so I've no idea which part of Devon!

13 Feb, 2012

 

Thanks Sticki - sorry, no idea! (where's appledore?)

13 Feb, 2012

 

on the opposite bank of the estuary to Instow where we stayed once,

its not so far from Barnstable on the north Devon coast

13 Feb, 2012

 

Must be a lovely place? :))

13 Feb, 2012

 

it was nice, we hired a large old house and shared it with another family, long time ago!!

13 Feb, 2012

 

Isn't this a beautiful painting. You are so talented Sheila.

13 Feb, 2012

 

You're very kind, Homebird, but I feel somewhat abashed as I did it from a picture. Still, I did enjoy doing it. :))

13 Feb, 2012

 

What does it matter where the idea came from, it was the artist in you that transferred the view to paper.

13 Feb, 2012

 

So many artists on this webpage... I am ashamed and happy to meet you all. Gattina, now Sheilabub. Beautiful talented ladies :)

13 Feb, 2012

 

Very kind Katarina, but I'm not in the same LEAGUE as Gattina! Still, there's room for all the different styles and levels, and it's having a go that's satisfying. :))

13 Feb, 2012

 

Btw, thanks for the "like" Pimms . . . glad to see you've climbed back out of your hole, lol. :)))

13 Feb, 2012

 

That is fantastic!! Quite talented!!!!

You're very kind - thanks Lil and Amy. Unfortunately, it was done 8 years ago, and I've hardly done any since!

13 Feb, 2012

 

Rose, please have a word with Sheila about this as I am about to burn yet another dinner ;{

13 Feb, 2012

 

Love this Sheila, so real, one of the best I've seen ....would love to see more...:))))

14 Feb, 2012

 

Wow Sue, OK will dig out some more . . . once the blush has subsided! Thank you for the lovely comment :)))

14 Feb, 2012

 

Wow Sheila!! Ooh, this is stunning, love the calmness of it, those colours are beautiful!

14 Feb, 2012

 

Many thanks Janey. :))

14 Feb, 2012

 

Simply superb! Do you do many?

17 Feb, 2012

 

Hi Tet - good to see you! I did a few some years ago, then gave it up in 2004 to do a garden design course. Since then I've only painted once a year for a Christmas card (which are getting steadily worse - OH doesn't know why I bother, lol)!

Been a bit inspired by some gorgeous photos on this site, so might have another dabble some time. What about you??

17 Feb, 2012

 

Thanks very much, by the way Tetrarch!

17 Feb, 2012

 

love this painting, Sheila, that is my weakness FLOWERS and PAINTINGS!!

18 Feb, 2012

 

Lovely Sheila and I always think water colour the hardest medium:-)

18 Feb, 2012

 

Thank you Junna and Ba!!

18 Feb, 2012

 

I thought the light was part of the painting too. Nice picture

19 Feb, 2012

 

Thanks Lindak. Next time, I'll try to avoid the "flash". :))

19 Feb, 2012

 

You should be able to turn the flash off.

21 Feb, 2012
