PS. I posted this composition as a sketch in ink in one of my other portfolio's on May 24th 2012!

Very nice Mia and interesting to read about the technique used here.

Google range of media, they go well together Mia.

love this one Mia beautifully done x

Really paid off - look forward to more...!

Interesting technique Mia and beautiful painting.

Thank you very much Louise, Carole, Sandy, Michael and Fiona. I highly appreciate your comments!

Oh I really like this one.

Beautiful Mia, this is such a lovely relaxing painting with super colours that are just the right shade of pale to be completely believable and for us to want to see more!

Thanks Karyl and Ros, I appreciate your positive comments.

Looks great - the colours really sing out aganst that wall.

Beautiful work, Mia, done in your lovely delicate style.

Thank you very much Amanda and Thea. I appreciate!

Hi Mia...... I found you, after a lot of clicking! Images of our posts are great but I find the sight very complicated !

Yes, Avril, I agree. It is very complicated to find what one is looking for. I was trying out almost every 'section' during those last days and I am still spending every free moment to discover something new! All the best and thank you for trying to find me. :) Mia

Hang on Studio Wall

Looking for a subject to paint in answer to Syd's Forum question on the way of working with pencil and washes in the Artist Magazine by John Sommerscales, I found this painting/drawing made a few years ago. I first made a detailled pencil drawing, adding shadow and structure with a soft pencil. Because it I thaught it wasn't complete, I added some watercolour to it... and there it is. All comments very welcome :) Mia
