Good Morning


greeting a new day

~

earlier this year, you might remember I created two gnome paintings (see below)

a friend asked if the gnome would be out from under the mushroom soon?

I said I wasn't sure.

he made a suggestion:
He is standing, his back to the viewer in a field of mushrooms, watching a sunrise

I took his suggestion

here are the two previous gnome paintings:



thanks for the inspiration Larry!

  3. What fun gnome paintings! I love your watercolour textures, It looks like you might have used salt? It makes me want to have a play with my watercolours again! xx

    1. Hi Jess,

      Thank you for your kind message. Yes, i used salt, it is fun to see what happens, for me it is different every time. I think it has to do with how wet or only moist the paint still is.

      lovely weekend to you

  11. These paintings bring a big smile to my face. I am marveling at how beautifully the colors blend in these paintings. Such gorgeous textures, especially the night sky and the swirl of stars that look like the Milky Way. Brilliant!
