New Paintings and a Visit to Tintinhull

I've been busy making daily paintings and here are a few of my most recent ones. I also have some finished paintings for sale listed in my Etsy shop but more of that later.

Sometimes it's nice to have a break and a few days ago we visited Tintinhull in Somerset. The house is very beautiful and because of its smaller scale than most National trust properties, very homely too.
 The view from the house into the garden is very pretty.
It's lovely to wander around the garden, arranged like little rooms that link one to another.

 A feast for the eyes from the beautiful and delicately coloured pale lemon tulips and hyacinths  

and the Heuchera Plum Royale. (I had to Google that!) 😉

How very perfect don't you think? A very pretty house and garden.

So now I'd like to show you my newest paintings. This one above is called Marina and is painted on 300gsm (140lb) watercolour paper with inks. I've listed it in my Etsy shop if you'd like to see more details.
I love mermaids and this next one is called Viridia.
I've used iridescent ink an the background, lovely and shimmery. Please click here if you'd like to see more of her.

There's something magical to me about the woods, like a deep memory that I can't quite recall. This painting above is called Wood Spirit. I've painted this on cradled wood panel and the surface has some lovely texture. She's looking for a new place to live. Could you be the one to give her a new place to dwell?
Thankyou for visiting! I hope you've enjoyed looking at my pics. I'm still very busy producing new work and will return soon to show you. 

If you can't wait that long and would like to see my works in progress and new work fresh from my paint brush, I update my Instagram and Facebook on an almost daily basis so do come and see me there, it'll be lovely to see you. Have a great week. xx
