Sky and Sea pebbles

Sky and Sea pebbles

These are lovely, Shirley. I used to paint pebbles many, many years ago so they strike a chord with me. Love the strong blues and the whole seaside feel of them.

Thank you Thea! I'm having a go with acrylics again, after a lot of watercolour.

Just the right sort of thing to paint on a beach pebble Shirley and we certainly have plenty of material in our part of the world. Super!

Beautiful colours and the shapes look good all together.

These are delightful, Shirley! It's like seeing the world in an oyster - I love how you've captured so much movement, light and atmosphere in these small pebbles.

Thank you very much, Christine, Pod and Seok. I've got some more to do now, and I am going to do some leaf paintings on them. Copying leaves I have picked up.

My mother used to paint in Oil on pebbles so I these bring back happy memories. Lovely images, work well on the different shapes.

Wow! Great idea and good weather days
