thanks for the fab refs Maureen, :clap:

The first one to grab me was the orchids with the light coming from the window behind. I'm still in a klimty sorta mood, but a little calmed today on account of the showery weather. Had to photograph these two, as didn't wanna trim it down to fit on the scanner, so there's a bit of barrelling that I can't adjust on this pooter, :( ho hum... mixty media on A4 fabriano 280g...


...then the books, I quite like this idea for a couple of paintings for my new studio - when I eventually get it :rolleyes: so shall maybe photograph my bookshelves and do them, like the idea of recording my fave ref books of the day. Cropped down the ref and added a couple of my own books on the end as I misjudged the image ref...Watercolour and ink on A4 Fabriano 280g....


...still have a couple more I'd like to tackle if the showery weather persists...

Love the orchid climbing out of its pot, and the sea shells are great. Books look wonderful too. Can't wait to see your other gems:)

Really love the life in the orchids ptg. It's dancing!...and I love the way you did the shells.
The books, in your hands, have made a super painting so I do hope you follow your idea through. Thanks for these Kat.

super duper job on the books Scatty - and the orchid in its red pot is absolutely delightful and so are the superbly drawn shells.
