‘Being Creative’ March Theme : Garden

Watercolour and Acrylic Ink on Daler Rowney Rough Aquarelle 140 lb.

This is my submission for Julia Crosslands ‘Being Creative Project’. With the theme of garden for the month of March, I liked the idea that a poppy seed head was full of promise, just like the approaching spring!

Inspired by this beautiful photograph.

Trying out some watercolour lettering…

I made this card for my oldest, loveliest friend who had a baby this week, named Lily Barbara.

Welcome to our world, Lily!

A Butterfly & A Toadstool – Part II

I started a new painting last night. I’m experimenting again. The next bit will be to add some ink detail.
