New Whimsical Horse Painting

I’ve just finished creating this delightful whimsical horse in watercolours, I layered the transparent layers of paint to make a dreamy floaty background then sketched a very whimsical floaty horse, I used opaque gouache for the highlights and watercolour pencils for the details.
The caption ‘Be Free’ was added in a mixture of gouache and watercolour and was inspired by the carefree and playful pose of the horse.
I think of it as a reminder to be playful in real life, as this can be very freeing, make time for play! :)

New Painting * Elephant Hawk Moth – Acrylic on Canvas

I love painting moths! It has been a while since I’ve made a nature painting so I decided to paint a Elephant Hawk-Moth!

The colours are delicious, like strawberry and lemon sorbet, it’s form is so sublime and aerodynamic that I decided to accentuate the lines to create an almost arrow-like shape.

It makes me wonder how many millions of years it took for nature to create something of such perfection. Can you imagine if you or I were given that task??

This will be the first canvas that I am putting up for sale, I am learning to let go of my paintings and offer them to new homes :)

TBT** Ostara carrying the springtime in her hair :)

I made this painting several years ago when I had just starting painting, it was part of a Life Book 2014 lesson taught by Tamara Laporte, I made my version into the goddess Ostara and she is carrying the springtime in her hair!! I love this painting so much, I might even turn it into a greetings card!! :)
