Seems like Ages

It seems like ages since I last posted on my blog. It is due to the fact that I have really only produced more sheep paintings and felt I needed to give you a break from seeing these. I have tried quite hard to find inspiration in other subjects but alas my flock have me well and truly engaged.
I have completed two watercolours, this seal painting today and the Koala last week so I thought I would post to show that I have tried. I had three attempts at a possum too but not happy with any of them.
Beware though I have more sheep ones completed and will likely show these too!

  1. Lorraine both gorgeous but your koala definitely does it for me. So soft with gorgeous eyes. Very cuddly. Not sure if paintings can be described as cuddly but yours definitely is. ;-)

  6. Lorraine, I could look at your sheep all the time - they are so full of expression, personality, and originality. That being said, these two little animals are awfully well done, too. Whatever direction you decide to go, just keep painting. You have a fan club!

  10. You really captured the glossy look to the seal's fur...nice! Love the koala. That one is so realistic looking. You don't have to worry about posting more sheep. We won't mind.

  12. Lorraine, thanks for your visit to my blog and for your encouraging words. You are right about painting the things we are passionate about. So we shall press on! Your paintings are charming and lovely. The seal shows their curiosity very well, and the Koala bear is cuddly for sure. :)
