The inspiration for this painting was an arty version of a photograph I edited many moons ago in Corel Photo-Paint. It’s not for sale yet because it’s not varnished. It was too blimmin’ cold to do any varnishing last week… so I hope to varnish it — AND another one I’ve just finished that I can’t wait to show you — in the next couple of days.

My thanks to everyone who participated in last week’s ‘what would you like me to draw again’ poll. The results are in and I’m happy to announce that ‘Snowflakes’ will be my next ink and watercolour project. I’ll let you know how I get on.

      Thanks, Karen. I’ve just had a peek at your blog and I love your painting ‘My Melbourne’ — I can easily believe it took months to complete! I tend to think a painting has taken a long time if it takes more than a couple of weeks : )

      Thanks, Carol. I’m planning on drawing/painting Snowflakes #2 later in the week — no plan of attack as yet… so I’m looking forward to seeing the new version too ; )

      Thanks, Leslie. I set myself the challenge of painting this one in a single session — and that’s unusually quick for me. I had been thinking about painting it for weeks before I started though. I’m really glad you like it.
