A Little Bit of Paint

At last, an opportunity to wet the brushes. The weather might be inclement but there's always the kitchen table and it doesn't take much searching to find a few suitable elements to make up a still life set up.

A really enjoyable session with my old mate Jed finishing off with the consumption of the bottle contents.



Still Life - Watercolour on rough paper 16" x 12"

A charming study, Mick. I think this is more your forte than the animal/bird paintings. Loof forward to seeing more.

Lovely painting Mick-with a vibrant yet controlled color palette. It shows that you've enjoyed working on this:)I especially like the touch of the detail on the wine bottle label.

Happy holidays and looking forward to seeing more of your work in 2013:)
