Invitation

Sometimes I walk by the same scene I’ve passed many times and suddenly see something new.  A mallard walking beside the road drew my attention to the fence and from there my eyes went to the trees beyond.

A Quiet Walk

Another watercolour from one of my Mexico photos. This is near the Paricutin volcano.

Green

An exercise in mixing greens, I did this watercolour from one of my travel photographs.

Wet on Wet Fun

I was having no luck with the sketches I was doing in order to paint another watercolour.  So I gave up and just painted wet-on-wet and had fun.imaginary-watercolour-landscape

Iguassu Falls

I have many photographs from my trip to Iguassu Falls from both the Brazilian and Argentinian side. I’ve always wanted to do  painting of the falls but felt it was too difficult.  After a couple of false starts, I decided to go small and painted this 4 1/2 by 6 inch watercolour from one of the pictures.

Barnet Park Landscapes

In the summer I go to exercise classes at Barnet Park in Calabogie twice a week.  It is a beautiful setting.  I frequently arrive early and sketch until its time for the class.  I always bring my camera.

These watercolours are from photos I took.  They are the same view but one is taken with a wider angle.

Rocks at Barnet Park

The colours are a little more subdued on this watercolour compared to my usual paintings.

Fall Landscape

I finished this watercolour a while ago but never got around to posting it.

Fall-Landscape--watercolour

It’s from a photo I had taken and saved to paint but I forgot to note down where I had taken the picture.  I think it might be a view from Champlain Lookout in Gatineau Park.

Looking at the Falls

A new watercolour based on a photograph I took on a trip to Brazil several years ago.

Looking at the Falls

My friend Marnie is looking out at Iguassu Falls. We spent a day on the Bazilian side and another on the Argentinian. The falls are magnificent. I will paint them someday.

This Old House

The house isn’t that old.  It’s just that my friends, Margo and Pat have bought a new one.  I felted them a reminder of their former house.
