August Watercolour Challenge 2011



August Watercolour Challenge 2011

What better way to celebrate Summer than paint subjects which remind us of holidays,sunshine beaches and relaxtion? I always try to vary my subjects as much as possible.I believe this strectches my artists soul and imagination, as well as my skill with my favourite medium.

I did love seeing all the emails that came my way with wonderful paintings of flowers in July so here is anotherWatercolour Challenge .

Please study the subject and look at how it sits in the composition.You can change this or paint it as you see it. Bear un mind others will be painting this too and they can see what you seew. How can you make your painting very different to everyone elses?

Photograph of a shell taken this morning.

I am amazed at how this  image looks like a painting already. I have only placed a favourite shell against the copper patio in one section of our garden. It acts as a gorgeous backdrop to the subject.

If you would like to send me your results please email me your paintings on

jeanhaines@hotmail.com

Happy painting and I look forward to seeing hwat you come up with.
