Original Watercolour from my "Watercolours With Life" Solo Exhibition at the
Waking to sunshine streaming through your window is a joyous sensation. On days like these in my mind I can already see vibrant colours arranged on my palette and I am eager to race to my studio to paint. I will take the warmth of the sun and aim to capture it in each of my pieces. This is exactly what happened when I painted "Proud Gent" the above watercolour of a gorgeous cockerel. I had been to a local farm and watched this incredible beauty proudly strutting his stuff in brilliant sunshine.Where the sun rays hit his golden feathers he seemed to appear absolutely radiant in colours which could be a challenge to keep that feeling of positive energy within him. His beady eye watched me as I took his photograph so I kept this wonderful moment in the finished peice. He made me smile,the painting still makes me smile and I am delighted to have it as part of my watercolour collection at the Wey Gallery for my "Watercolours With Life" solo exhibition.
I'm going to enjoy the sunshine today,walk my wonderful Bearded Collie Bailey and then paint with brilliantly hot colours. A perfect day!
"Proud Gent" waiting to be delivered to the Wey Gallery.
