Ghost ship


Very ghostly - like it!

Well done, Paul, very mysterious atmosphere.

Great effect Paul, love it!

Like it - feels rather eerie!!

Good effects especially with the brush being taped to your fingers.

Thanks Mia, Katy, David and Denise for your kind comments. It was a bit odd feeling Denise but it was the only way I could keep hold with my right hand , I can use my left hand a bit bit it’s always so awkward and clumsy.

Love the monochromatic palette which works very well and which defines the very atmospheric feel of the piece.

Thank you Seok for your kind comment.

Appearing out of the mist, so atmospheric Paul, spooky! Well done with the taped to fingers brush!

Thank you Carole for you kind comment.

Well done, Dixie. A great result.

Great idea and great result. More 'no fiddling' with painting after it has been finished.

Super enigmatic painting which lends itself to an interesting narrative Paul.

Thank you Gudrun and Carole for you kind comments.

I like this Paul, good for you!

Very atmospheric, really like this.

Thank you Fiona and Carrie for you kind comments they are alway appreciated.

Many thanks for your comment Graham.

Lovely & how you painted it is really innovative

Thank you Sara for your kind comment.

Hang on Studio Wall

A 24x32 cm 200 gsm watercolour, using the paint cleaned from around the neck of tubes of Payne’s grey and Indigo . Done very quickly with a brush taped to my fingers I’m actually really pleased with the results as I was not able to fiddle, maybe I should do this more often ( no way).
