Who doesn’t have a love affair with trees. Cooling shade, aromatic flowers, delicious greens of every hue, dancing branches and every one with a uniquely shaped trunk.
West of Lunch watercolour paintings, some available in the shop. WoL Shop
June is surely the sweetest month in the garden in our part of the world, and a vase or pot keep fresh flowers in our lives all year round. Constant subject matter for you know what.
About five years ago I took a watercolour class. Its lightness was very appealing and painters I’ve loved, like Raoul Dufy, make it look so fine, so breezy, so easy.
By Raoul Dufy, 1953 — one of my inspirations
It turns out learning watercolour is not nearly as simple as it looks and small variations in paper, liquidity, humidity, brush size, etc etc affect how things turn out. But it has completely seduced and intrigued me and so I continue it as a practise, particularly when travelling. Along the way I leave a trail of little paintings, and some work out okay.
Now offered in the shop. Helps pay for more paper and paint. All originals. Payment is processed through PayPal’s secure site.
The painting practise, for some reason, was dubbed West of Lunch. Explore on Pinterest or follow on Instagram.
