Challenge 3 - Thank you Cathy Holtom (check out her lovely blog - a very versatile artist). You mentioned thinking of food you might have on an imagined holiday. No brainer. Italian Ice Cream. The best in the world. I have titled it 'Gelato' Looking forward to eating some of it later in the year. My mouth is watering just thinking of it.
Challenge 4 - Thank you to Susan Caton (a facebook friend) who challenged me to paint a coastal scene with a little boat going into harbour, choppy waves. So I came up with this one. Sue loves Cornwall so it is Falmouth and I have named the boat 'Caton Star' and the pub 'Cum Inn'. I went a bit overboard with the masking fluid on the right, you can see waves hovering in mid air. Alas, with masking fluid, it is impossible to remove the light area it leaves behind.
Three more to go!
