I’ve updated & organised two pages of watercolours on my artists-atelier.com website:
Watercolour Gallery 1 : Selected Recent Watercolours 2007 (18 images)
Watercolour Gallery 2 : Selected Recent Watercolours 2000 – 2006 (18 images)
I’ve only got a cranky, old, freebie, promotional copy of Dreamweaver 1, which is very buggy & difficult to use, so the work was slow.
Here are two images from the pages:
‘Tourette #2’ (view over the Dropt Valley)
56 x 76 cm Full sheet Arches

‘Albas # 1 ‘ (view over the Lot Valley),
Quarter sheet Arches Rough 300 gms.
28 x38 cm
It’s kind of a relief, as this act of organising feels like the end of a long cycle of work. Most of them are already sold & gone. Sometimes difficult to get a clear & objective overview.And I tend to work in a what feels like a very stop start kind of way, due to all the other demands on my time : Dad to two young kids, restoring a house (roof to come off soon), running painting holidays, teaching locally & oil painting as well, not to mention my ‘how to paint’ book which is ambling along in a simular stop start way, with the usual fits of self-doubt.Keeping focus all the time isn’t always possible I find. Or one could say, being more generous, that Life bumbles along, so enjoy the ride & the fellow passengers that one finds oneself sharing the wagon with… things always take longer that I imagine. I also imagine some fabulous watercolours that have yet to be made apparent. Some day soon, I hope.
Good to be busy with what one loves.
