I have done a watercolour of a Very fine cat.
(he didn't have very fine whiskers though, a bit short and stubby!)
but yes he did have a cerise collar.

Win a Pet Portrait.

You could win a pet portrait. All you need to do is pop over to the Rather Lovely Sheep Raffle using the link on my side bar and buy some raffle tickets.
There are lots of other lovely prizes to win.
The raffle has now closed and I will soon be doing a portrait for a winner of this prize.

Meet Renee

This is Renee.

She belongs to Gerry who won my give-a-way back in February.

She is an Art doll Gerry made and she wanted a portrait of her.

She was such fun to paint!

Not just pets...

.....I also enjoy doing paintings and drawings of buildings. The above drawing is the back of our old house. My friend Shan had the drawing printed into cards for me.

This is an unfinished watercolour of Lee Cottage.

And this is a watercolour I painted as a commission for a friend of a friend as a wedding present. The building is Scaitcliffe Hall in Todmorden.

I did get chance this weekend to do a quick watercolour of a cat for an elderly gentleman who is unwell at the moment. The cat is Nadolig and the gentleman is Mr Glyn Griffiths.
