Snowy scene

Snowy scene

I decided to join a watercolour art class a couple of months ago to help keep me busy during the long winter evenings.
We had scenes from a calendar to paint and this was mine...I'm quite pleased with it, for the first go....:))

I like it too!

Well if that is your first go it is extremely good. Hope you stick with it. A class makes you try harder and you learn more from each other. (I taught art to adults in an FE college at one point). It is a hobby that makes people happy. :0) They say artists make good gardeners too.

Water colours are so delicate and you have used them so effectively.
The sky colours are really lovely.

That is really good Janey - can't believe it's your first attempt - love it! (and I know how difficult depicting snow can be . . . )

It's very good Janey :) I'm glad you've found a new hobby. You might find you want to pursue it all year round, not just on long winter evenings :o)

This is lovely Janey. I'm so glad you are enjoying the art.

Very well done for a first attempt, Janey! You should see my Cybermen & Dalek drawings I do for my grandson - make you want to hide away! He's happy with them though & I suppose that that's what counts! (They say practise makes perfect - they never met me!)

Wow, what a lot of lovely comments and thanks for the encouragement everyone! I wasn't too happy with the tree itself, but i'm really enjoying the class.

It is good to focus your mind Linda, it's like a mental holiday....:o)) I've painted in oils and acrylics before but not water colours, I didn't realize there were so many techniques and different ways of putting the colour on the paper, and taking it off...lol! One of the ladies uses cling film to scrunch over the wet background and it looks fabulous.

Ha ha Amy, I still have the toll work...it's coming back into fashion now too, along with stencilling etc, it'll be called vintage now though....:o))

Yes but when he's older Balc, he'll look back on these days of Grandad's daleks and cybermen with fondness won't he, it's all about making memories with them...:o))

You've really captured the scene Janey, I felt cold just looking at it. I tried water colour once, was useless, you obviously have the knack:-)

That is lovely Janey, well done ! just wish there was an Art group near here,I love painting and drawing but have not done any for a long time now, just need to share with others which will motivate me again;0))

Thanks Ba....now you keep well wrapped up, don't slip on the goose grease though...:))

Thanks very much Carole, yes having a group does help,
makes you do your homework...lol! We all love your paintings, I think it was Wells who suggested a painting site, that would be good for winter wouldn't it!

For a first attempt I find that amazing, you obviously have a natural talent, well done.....
