An English Rose.


'An English Rose,' watercolours, around 10 by 9 ins., paper.

Snoozing Susie.

Wet and overcast today.  I did some watercolour portrait practice and Susie slept the day away.

The inspiration for my watercolour portrait was a photo from Kara Bullock.

Lately, I have decided that its best if I stop painting just before the point of tweaking it to 'perfection'.  For me, there's a definite change in how I think ....when I begin to pass over the line from suggesting the image, to fiddling.     

As you can see from my worktop photo, I am enjoying watercolours this week.

I hope you all have a great weekend; whatever the weather where you are.

Bye for now.

June and Susie.
