  • Hi Diana, I do like this very much, in fact if you had not told us it was watercolour, I would have been sure it was done with oils, Really lovely.

  • Very evocative and meaningful. Wonderful work on the rust on the chains - don't know how you do this! Like the additions.

  • Thank you very much Norman and Thea. Norman I like to work watercolour as far as I can instead of just washes; see what it can do. In other things washes are fine but I wanted strength here. Thea I just build up the rust in layers, mostly wet on wet.

  • Maybe I should explain such a personal painting. 7 years ago I became disabled, bedridden for almost a year and then a wheelchair user in dreadful constant pain. Had to give up work and a normal life. This represents my struggle to break out of that. The greenery is new life,where I managed to break through the pain; a new life I carved for myself such as my painting and hope that one day it may blossom. The tiny feather at the back is the freedom that didn't quite fly away; a little bit hung on that I could use.

  • And you have done it wonderfully well Diana ! I love the sense of design telling a story, the composition and colours.
