Butterfly, faded - watercolour, quarter sheet

I chose this one because it was one of those rare paintings where everything went exactly as I'd planned and I enjoyed the whole process. It was also the first painting I'd completed in front of other people (I normally paint at home, I did this at my art club).

This was my first commission - their owner was delighted and said I'd captured their characters.

Oh, I don't know how to add a link!

What a good idea for a gallery!

Re: Your Best Work For 2016
I chose this piece for two reasons. Number one being that this was the first time I attempted to add a human figure to one of my animal paintings and I was happy with the results. Number two being that not only was this piece juried into an equine art show about people and their relationships with horses, but I was also awarded second place at the show for it! :clap:

My favorite is this painting of a fox, just very happy with how all of it turned out.

This is one of my more challenging paintings for the year. It is from a photo taken along the highway early in the morning on our way to church. The fresh snow had just fallen and the owl was out looking for breakfast.

This is the link for the snowy owl.

Here's mine.
All my A & W paintings were done for our Monthly Challenges. I've picked this one of mine to feature, as it was a painting that went ok right from the beginning - that doesn't happen for me very often!

25cm x 30cm - PanPastels & pastel pencils on Mi-Teintes paper

I'd have to say it's this one. It's my favourite of the year anyway.

Tern of the Tide
For colour, composition rendering, subject and design, I think this was my most powerful painting for 2016.
