New paintings and phone blogging.

As I said in my last post I've been wanting to paint & blog more often, at least weekly I think I said. Thankfully I've found some time to paint but alas no time to find my camera, take pics and download them and then blog ( ah deep breath) so I thought as I always have my phone with me wherever I am I should try to blog using that as and when I paint etc.

So this is my first blog entry using my phone and I'd like to show you a few of my latest paintings.

I always try to paint with muted and dull tones but I always seem to paint brightly coloured paintings and although I like them I didn't intend for them to be so bold, neat and colourful. I like messy art but usually struggle to make my brush bounce around the canvas and instead I paint the canvas as if I'm painting in a colouring book and have to stay in the lines. I have managed to paint in the early hours of this morning and I must say that it's rather messy painting (for me anyway) and dare I say it has a dark tone to it? Well it has and I love it. I shall take pics later and include them in my next blog.

These paintings will find themselves in my Etsy shop as soon as I have a bunch more to go with them. Thanks for visiting my blog xxxx


  1. I do the same thing...paint more boldly than I intended to.

    Your paintings are sweet, love the first one...the owl on her head, her hair and her shirt adds some nice line and texture.

  2. Thanks Lisa, it's sweet of you to comment x I look forward to checking out your blog also.
