Trip into Town

I've had a lull with watercolours of late, but have found some inspiration to get some paintings ready for the 85th National exhibition coming up in March. The paintings have to be submitted next week!
This is a sneak peek of one I'm quite excited about. Have a long way to go but I'm taking my time on this as I'm enjoying it so much.
Started of with a wet in wet wash of FUM, Indigo and Y Ochre. Let that dry and have started adding details to the subject.

Have a great weekend every one and catch up with you soon!

Till next time.....

Looking really lovely! Can't wait to see it finished..
You are not the only artist that has ever found competitions to be motivating. :-)
Best of luck to you!

Ma chère Debbie, tout d'abord un grand merci pour ce dernier commentaire laissé sur mon blog. Ton rhinocéros a été très décisif pour ma dernière peinture en cours... cet animal me fascine... pourquoi ? Je ne saurais pas le dire...
Revenons-en à nos moutons! En ce qui concerne cette peinture en belle et grande progression, j'admire le dessin, qui pour moi est une base solide. Le souci des détails qui fourmillent me magnétise et en fait déjà une toile très séduisante.
Toutes mes félicitations pour l'exposition à venir.
Je te fais de gros bisous et te souhaite une heureuse Saint Valentin.

Thank you so much Sandra!

Thank Carol..... it's sitting staring at me wishing for me to carry on, but I'm taking it slow!

Isn't it funny how things like this give you a reason to paint when all seems lost Victoria,Thanks for the feedback!

Martine, you are a honey! Thanks for your lovely comments, always! For those who don't understand French.... this is the translation (direct).
Dear Debbie, first of all one thank you very much for this last left comment on my blog. Your rhinoceros was very decisive for my last ongoing painting this animal fascinates me why? I would not know how to say it...
Let us come back from it to our sheep! As regards this painting in nice and big progress, I admire the drawings, which for me is a solid foundation. The worry of the details which are teeming magnetizes me and in fact already a very appealing cloth.
All my congratulations on the exhibition to come.
I make you big kisses and wishes you happy one saint Valentine.
