Bringing them in.


A lovely painting, Paul. You have definitely brought out the shape of the land.

You have done a great job Dixie with a difficult subject and you are not alone in having painting disasters. I think it's all part of the learning process, my garage is full of disasters waiting to be rescued.

I think you’ve succeeded in describing the contours of the land Paul…..its a lovely winter landscape.

David, Heather, Bryan and Fiona thank you for your very kind comments.

Yes, the shape of the hills is all there. Lovely work Dixie.

I think you have done this well Paul. As the artist are we really ever in control a hundred percent. You have succeeded Paul and it's here for us all to see.

Lew and Chris many thanks for your kind comments they are always appreciated.

I think it HAS worked - and we all have disasters, especially in watercolour. That's why I like acrylic and oil, or gouache - you can bury your mistakes under coats of paint.

A very pleasing composition and delicately handled Paul.

Nice work Paul, especially the purple shadows.

I like it a lot Paul

Thank you Robert , Alan , Andrew and Valerie for you comment they are appreciated and it good to hear from you guys that it’s worked out ok .

Thank you Michael for you kind comments.

A real feel of winter.

Spencer and Stephen thank you for your comments they are appreciated.

Lovely painting Paul.

Lovely delicate work Paul, the limited palette catches the season well, I think we have all wasted a lot of paper over the years. Hope they don’t ban us for adding to deforestation!

Thank you a Denise and Stephen for your kind comments. I’m hoping to revive the one that had a spill over it at some point, hate to waste .

I agree, this is lovely, you have defined the land shape and the colours work really well

It’s a lovely painting Paul. Subtle colours and delicately done.

Thank you for your kind comment Christine.

A very evocative feel to this, think it works very well Dixie

Thank you Hillary you comment is appreciated.

Hang on Studio Wall

23x32 cm watercolour of sheep been taken down off the snow covered Dales . I found this really difficult to paint due to the lack of features and using the colours to represent the shape of the land and the colours. Not totally sure it it’s work , but quit happy as it’s the first painting I’ve not messed up for a couple of weeks , had a couple of disasters torn painting , orange paint spilled over one etc.

About the Artist
Paul (Dixie) Dean

I have sketched most of my life on and off I became interested in watercolour following a spinal injury whilst in hospital but did not follow it up. My eldest daughter bought me a beautiful wooden box set of half pans about twenty five years ago I dabbled on and off until retirement twelve years…
