First Ever Blog


This is an exciting day for me, having just found out how to do this. Have been following other aspiring and successful artists' blogs which I found via Carol Carter's website. Please excuse any major blunders for the first few posts as I am still learning.


I belong to a couple of local art societies and attend painting groups each week and would be grateful to receive any constructive criticism from fellow bloggers. I paint mostly in watercolour, once a year in oil, and have recently been experimenting with acrylics. You know what they say, "Jack of all trades...", that's me. I am keen to get this posted so here goes and here is my first painting for any thoughts.

I managed to open your new blog via your comment on my boat houses. Welcome to this mad house of artist bloggers, where we have such fun adding our efforts and awaiting visitors' comments. Like very much your still life technique and colours. Look forward to seeing more of your works of art.

Thank you Joan, it is lovely to hear what other, more experienced artists say. Have been enjoying your lovely flowers and still lifes also.
