I am still beavering away.

I am still working every day but on the whole my efforts are not good enough to show you. I just have to keep going. I found a little bit of Kaffe Fassett material in the drawer left from a wall hanging I made last year. I folded it over and drew and painted it (stripes), now I am intending to move on. I shall not move forward until I have mastered those stripes.

I have had a few goes at painting a nectarine. Not easy but again I shall keep going. Thanks for the encouragement you keep giving me.


  1. Watercolors are the hardest medium to use and master. First you have to figure out how do you want to use the color. Realistic paintings like Winslow Homer, one of my favorites or quick sketch book drawings like Tim Baynes, (London White City March 10)
    I like your material swatch color study, maybe because it looks like my watercolors.
    The way I see and interpret objects/countryside is by flat shapes like what you have painted.

    I think your doing great. Most of all have some fun.

    cheers, parsnip

  2. I like the nectarine, and actually it looks like a nectarine!

  3. Thank you for being so kind. That sort of remark gives me a bit more confidence.

  4. I think you're being far too harsh on yourself.

  5. Glad to see you're still on the case. Sunday's post I thought was splendid - and yes, you are being too hard on yourself, but I guess that's what artists do!

  6. Colour is your thing, Weaver, no doubt, and the nectarine looks good enough to bite...
