Misty Landscape


You are a competitive family Dixie! This is very atmospheric and portrays the mist/fog really well: also shows what can be achieved in a short time and without fiddling.

Great challenge Paul and a real misty look you have accomplished.

Thank you Tessa and Denise . Tessa the competitive person is my son , he can’t event let a child win a game of anything and can’t stand to loose. His comment was its not a proper painting because it’s all out of focus so it not accepted. I take up the challenge because it’s fun watching him wriggle when he is proven wrong .

A great piece of work in such a short time

Certainly achieved Misty and in such a short time. Good distant figures.

Thank you John and Richard for taking the time to look and comment.

You are certainly up for a challenge Paul, you have captured the atmosphere perfectly. Spot on & in less than 10 mins!

Thank you Brian , sometimes it’s better to just do it, I have a tendency to fiddle . I love doing these quick painting’s as I don’t have time to mess with it.

Gosh - that was quite a challenge and so glad you triumphed so well!! You have certainly achieved a misty feel to the painting!

Thanks Davis , I was pleased it worked for a different reason, the look on my sons face however he never admits to loosing.

Sorry Paul I missed this one.! Fab 10 min work and misty it is 😊

Hang on Studio Wall

A4 watercolour using left over paint and a one inch flat. I wax challenge to do this in ten minutes or less by my very competitive so, following my youngest granddaughter telling him that I could do it. He timed me as he would not accept just watching , eight minutes forty five seconds. . He was very fed up as his six year old niece got one up on him.

I developed an interest in watercolour painting whilst recovering from a spinal injury . Started painting whilst laid flat on my back using a mirror, did it stop the OT pestering me, but it backfired. When I sat up had to start all over again as I was use to painting through a mirror. Stop painting…
