On My Easel

 New Collection for the Watercolours With Life Exhibition at
The Wey Gallery,Godalming in April 2011


" Definitely a Winner!"
New Watercolour

I have  some really exciting pieces in my studio at the moment.Two  particular pieces I am racing to paint each morning are horse racing scenes. Both have an incredible sense of light and movement. I feel this is more than justthe  passion for painting I carry in my soul. I truly am a watercolour addict. I can't wait to see how new colour combinations or water effects turn out each day. I will have a fabulous favourite painting, start a new piece and find that the next painting becomes my new favourite.

Life is wonderful.The colours I use to set my mood from years of training really lift my spirits or calm my soul depending on what I need most of all. Which is why I am  taking the two day seminar at Four Seasons Hotel in April. " Painting Escapes" not only looks at ways to work in watercolour but also how working with the medium as I do can  de stress and change your life in many positive ways.

I have to keep this  blog entry very short as I desperately want to get back to painting!

Looks good, Jean. You are a big hero on the Painting Loft website. I've never seen so many roosters being executed in your loose style! I haven't painted any myself yet, but I have attempted to produce images of racing cyclists in the same style as your jockeys. Keep up the excellent work!

And please say hello to everyone for me.It's really very exciting to discover people you have never met or come across in the world like your style. For me this time in my life is simply incredible ,giving away all I know if it makes others love watercolour as much as I do is what I live for. So your reply here has really made my day.Thank you so very much for taking the time to leave a comment
