"Somewhere in Scotland at Sunset".

Yippee!!! I've just recently recovered from an irritating middle ear infection which lasted for approx eight weeks. I know we don't paint with our ears, but I was surprised at how difficult it was to apply myself to anything slightly cerebral with all that going on inside my head so I found myself not doing much painting.

Anyway, the other day I found a 5ml tube of Winsor and Newtons light red. It's a terracotta-ish red and I used it in the past mainly for warm orangey pink skies. I thought I'd loosen myself up and get back into the swing of things. I created six small watercolours. The first few destined for the bin because I'd forgotten how to paint and my timing was way out.

Well, I needed an excuse to get out on my bike and get some exercise (which I hadn't done for ages). I frequently went back and forth to the Post Office to post paintings so I thought I'd make another trip to the Post Office and send the best painting as a surprise to a fellow artist to say thanks for being so supportive over the last couple of months, and to get my badly needed exercise.

Well, you'll all be pleased to know I have second degree saddle sores,  my legs are as stiff as tree trunks and I can't move. Bwah ha ha!!!! I'm only kidding. At the moment things are looking good and I couldn't feel better.

I hope everything is OK with you too.

Right, Firstly, a bit of harmonica practice, then painting. See ya.

Somewhere in Scotland at Sunset. Watercolour 7 x 5 inches.


  1. Thanks Samantha :o)

    I just came back to correct my spelling mistake. It's saddle and not sadle. Must cut down on my milk consumption.

  2. For some reasons this reminds me really strongly of a comic strip. I want to see Flash Gordon there with a caption! :)
