Collie in fields.


'Collie in fields,' watercolours, 10 by 12 ins., Fabriano paper.

June, ready to go into town to visit BP portrait exhibition.

June, in the city art gallery.

I managed to visit the portrait painting exhibition this week.  It was very dark in the gallery rooms for that exhibit so I didn't take photos of the artworks, but I took a photo of the catalogue and display notice.  Mostly, the portraits used oils and were painted in a representational, traditional/classical style.  I liked the paintings of people from other cultures.

I managed a watercolour painting of a collie yesterday, inspired by a photo on wetcanvas.

I have had 3 border collies in my life.  Dillin and Chester when I lived in Scotland; and Trigger, when I lived in NZ.  A bit of a Western cowboy theme going on with naming my dogs!

That's all for this post.

Linking to PPF.

Hello from Susie!

Bye for now.

Love your collie painting. My last dog was a border collie, too, and the best companion anyone could ever have. I still miss her! The portrait exhibition looks great, as does Miss Susie. There's a big Paul Klee show coming here soon, so I'm looking forward to it. Happy weekend, Valerie

Really wonderful watercolor. I am taking classes for wc and find it a difficult medium to work in. Practice is the name of the game. Yours is really lovely. Great photos of you too.
