I was so thrilled when Sharon Whitley nominated me for this pass on award (something like a chain letter) that is awarded by fellow bloggers to blogs they follow that inspire, inform and entertain (my words) These three words definitely apply to Sharon's blog, whose animal and bird paintings are lovely and her tales of her ramblings in Wales and the Lake District are amazing. Do wander over and journey through her blog.
I follow many blogs and have in turn decided to nominate 5 blogs that are different to my watercolour blog. They are all busy bloggers, all versatile and all under 150 followers (the criteria being 200).
http://pencilpix.blogspot.co.uk - Sue Clinker. Her drawings of animals and her portraits literally take your breath away, there are a few interesting articles there too.
http://carolebaker.blogspot.co.uk - Watercolour and guache. I particulary admire her still life and her work in January when she did a beautiful work of art every single day! Amazing) (she also runs another blog)
http://cotswoldsketchbook.blogspot.co.uk - Nigel Fletcher. (you may notice it as Painting adventures in the Limousin, it's the same blog). I love these fluid oil paintings anything from landscapes to flowers and even Noddy and Big Ears. If a painted in oils this is how I would like to paint.
http://gardenartjournal.blogspot.co.uk - Kat Farmer/vanHookens (this site is similarly called an artists journal) and is a delightful personal diary of exquisite paintings plus description, and a variety of other paintings too.
http://nuggletonbythesea.blogspot.co.uk and yes it a friend of mine. Lesley Nugent. If it wasn't for her I would never have started blogging. Her blog shows the power of blogging and facebook as she now has work in an online gallery. She paints naive paintings in watercolour and you can follow every step of each fun filled painting.
I hope I have introduced you to blogs you perhaps may not be aware of. Please pop over for a visit and I hope you enjoy my choices.
May I take this opportunity of saying how wonderful it is that people like and follow and comment on my blogs. I love it! I follow many and while I may not comment very often, I do look at each one and take inspiration from them. So I thank you for looking and thank you again Sharon.
