Category: Acrylic painting.

My painting journey.

It will come as no surprise when I say I love digital painting! When I first began painting I painted in the traditional way with mainly acrylic paints on canvas. My first ever attempt painting was in oils and it was a fish! Impressive…

The enlightened eye!

I remember above a year ago painting this below in acrylic paint. 1   This is a new digital painting below called my enlightened eye!  Which do you prefer? 1 or 2 2

What a difference a year makes

Last year I was painting with acrylic paints and created the following Christmas cards. This year I’m Digitally painting and I’ve created the following below….. I can’t help wondering if I will still be painting next year and if so, using which format 🤔

The all seeing eye, acrylic painting.

My first ever painting! The fish in oils.

  This was my first ever attempt at painting! I very nearly gave up after this! 😬

Digital v traditional art!

I’ve become a little bit disillusioned doing digital art! Let me rephrase that, I am finding digital art too difficult to master 😏 More difficult would you believe than painting by hand with a canvas, paint and brushes 🙄 I know that with practice I…

Sometimes I wish I had never started painting 😔

Compromise Part two …… After spending eight hours painting yesterday I ended up with this. Which I tried looking at from all directions Nope 👎 John said it looked like a dice 🎲 so I decided that surgery would have to be performed to…

Inviting Spring Painting.

Yet more flowers to invite Spring to come a little bit earlier.

Finished Daisy painting

I’ve finished my daisy painting and when I looked up out of my window 😳 snow! Maybe I need to paint more daisies !

Who needs wallpaper!

It’s good that we chose to have plain painted walls although I don’t think either of us thought it would end up like a gallery! The craft room is over flowing now! I’m working on a new painting, a field of daisies, every time…

For Cheryl

Here’s one especially for my good friend Cheryl who likes wolves! I’m only sorry that I can’t give you the original canvas 😟 I-can however send you it by email and you can get it printed on to canvas locally or a print 😃…

Alternative Universe !

Sticking with the space theme here is today’s painting 😊 Elaine.

Seeing stars !

Loving splashing the paint to make stars now, second painting of the galaxy 😉

This made me smile.

Sometimes when I am doing a painting and I’m not sure which direction it will go I take a photo and make it my screen saver. That way every time I look at my iPad I subconsciously look at it deeper, if that makes…

Painting in the night!

I must be feeling better because I’m up painting! It’s 2.12am but when the urge strikes me I just can’t sleep. I’ve missed painting for the last few days. This is my first painting, a male angel 😉 I’ve started this one below which…

Awake in the night.

It’s been a while since I’ve been up in the night but this cold bug is keeping me awake so I decided to get up and make a cup of tea along with a biscuit, okay 3 medicinal biscuits to clear my airwaves. 😐…

And finally.

Finally Finally,  my last painting of the year, may your new year be special and magical in every way… Many thanks for all your wonderful words of encouragement, you kept me painting and for that I am very grateful. Elaine x

Dizzy portrait.

I follow a young lady called Heather who has a great blog called https://dinosaursdonkeysandms.com   Dizzy the donkey features in her blog and as such I thought it was time he had his own portrait and here it is. Keep up the great blog…

Finished Christmas cards

It’s been a joint effort to create these cards, I’ve painted them and John has done the verse and the personalised them. They will be on sale next year. 🎄 Elaine 😉

Celebrating Christmas on the moon.

Even Milly celebrates Christmas on the moon!

The Snow family.

I told you I have been busy with no internet connection! Yet another painting for my homemade Christmas cards. 😉

Christmas snowman painting

I probably should have done a step by step painting of this one because HONESTLY it was easy. I just painted the canvas black then added the snowman, a moon and a tree. Have a go, go on, you know you want to. ⛄️…

Painted my own Christmas card this year. 2017

I told my eldest daughter that I was going to paint something this year to print out on to cards for Christmas and she asked me if she could have the original painting. Considering I am seriously running out of space to keep canvases…

Landscape on canvas paper

Whilst waiting for my moon to dry I began painting this landscape in acrylics, I think it looks like I’ve used water colours 🤷🏼‍♀️
