A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Halloween watercolour painting

Sings.... "I'm so excited and I just can't hide it... la la la la la...la la la la la la"   Do you ever find something in your stash that you put away cos you didn't think it would be up to much... even though you bought it in the first place???.  Well I wanted to take  part in the Willowing Halloween challenge and was looking for something to paint with when I came across some cheap as chips watercolour pencils from Tesco in my stash... I only bought them cos I wanted to alter the box...lol...but I decided to have a go with them and whoooohooopetty whooo I bloomin'love them!!  They are fab.  A box of 12 recycled water colour pencils for about 4 quid (I think that's what I paid) and the colours are lovely.


So I dug out a flat canvas and painted my Halloween witch :D  Now i know I'm not the best painter in the world ( practice will make perfect eh) but I really enjoyed doing this and that's all that matters isn't it.  I think those pencils are going to get a hammering over the next few weeks... better see if they have any more in Tesco next time I shop :-D
