Ruben

Ruben is a rescue dog from Romania painted in watercolour.
Pity I couldn't get this copy to show the detail of his eyes and nose.
Still no twinkle.

Molly dog.

Mollie was commissioned and I painted this acrylic version for fun and for me.









Fortunately Mollie's 'mum' preferred the watercolour version after much debate.

Kingfishers three, invited to tea, one plump, one fair, one rather thin.


Here we have a rather well fed Kingfisher.
Looking for a nice fish.
This is Kevin, a little on the thin side, but with quite a character.

Chinese Spring Kingfisher Practice Bird and Flower Painting

Just some late night practice. I enjoy using this odd turquise paint in the maries standard set. 
Many chinese standard colours are quite distinct and make paintings hold the colour theme of Chinese Art because of this. Its an odd thing.
The west seem to use standard spectrums at set intervals, the Chinese seem to have used their resources 
and from that you mix the colours inbetween. And when you add your seal stone to the painting it all seem 
to be held together well.
I prefer this.

The Lions.

I think that if The Lions saw this rendition of themselves 
they just might eat me up and spit me out. M'reen
