Watercolour, humour, this and that

Saturday, 8 February 2014


For those of you who don't know I challenged myself to paint subjects as they came up in alphabetical order that I saw on tv.  Here is the next and penultimate batch.  We are watching Country File and are now coming to the hard letters to spot, so here is what happened..............
Was waiting for 'U', waiting and waiting. Then someone said "under the ground" so this little fox is searching for something  Under the Ground - bit tentative but hey who cares. Taken from a delightful photograph by Michael Eastman.

Really hate flowers hence two different painting one tightish and the other loose without drawing first.  They were talking about Dog Violet - so I latched onto that one and hence 'V' Violet.

This Country File programme was a look back programme, and they looked back at a previous winter.  Get it?  'W' for Winter.  Wanted a bit of colour so added this little blue tit and made the background look frosty with cling film.  If you look carefully you will see little icicles on the branch.

Now then, X, Y and Z tested me but managed to get them before the end of the programme. I was listening and watching so intently for the relevant letter, that I lost the plot as far as the programme was concerned.  
Have a wonderful weekend wherever you are.
