Irish castles are always dramatic and this is an example (with a little bit of “artistic” licence, thrown in) executed in ink and watercolour – line and wash.
This little pond has a never ending fascination for our two cats as they stare endlessly into its’ depths for the noisy frogs that live in this shady environment. Sold.

Illustrations can be as simple as this illustration or highly complex. This is an example artwork during a tutorial, using watercolour and ink for a quick sketch.

There are lots of times when artists feel the need to try something new, but please avoid entering into an artwork with which you have no affinity whatseover. Putting the elements here together, one finds sky, water, land and boats and seabirds. This painting uses a lot of flat masses – sky and sea, lifted with the barely visible background. The foreground shows a walkway with some sailing boats at the sea way and one larger boat sailing along the side. This work entailed just some drawing and a lot of water…….
