The days are still cold and wintry so here’s a little something to brighten your day. If you have been reading my recent posts you will know that I opened an online store in the New Year – doricdragons.com
If you use the code EarlGreyandABiscuit, when ordering from my shop (orders over £40) you will get 10% off your whole order. Hurry up though, it only lasts until the end of this month (February 2020)!
I am adding to the store every week, so keep checking back for new items.
As you can see from this I am still in watercolour/animal mode. Quite different to my usual abstract stuff! I wasn’t quite so happy with this painting of a hare but there are some parts that I like, particularly the “hairiness”. That wasn’t intended to be a pun by the way!
I used Roman Szmal Aquarius watercolour paints for this, they have become my absolute favourite watercolours. My brushes are Kum Memory Point and a Rosemary & Co dagger brush, half inch, sable blend. I love the dagger brush and it gets used for about 90 percent of my painting. You can achieve broad marks or very fine lines from just the one brush. I am using it so much that I will have to get myself a couple of back ups. Rosemary and Co brushes are such excellent value for money, really good quality and they are hand made.
I still have a few more animals that I need to paint but I am getting very distracted doing some vinyl cutting designs for putting on to bags and t shirts. More about that in another, upcoming post. Speak to you soon!
