Hi Ingrid. My Mum was talking to me about your last sheep post when she came over last - She saw it through my own blog and really liked it. I think they are lovely too!

Ingrid said...

Hi Sandra .. good to see you! When I did the sheep lined with pen I liked it, but prefer this version ... it's softer! Please thank Mom for stopping by, I hope I will see her here again soon! tc

This is fantastic. Thank you for commenting on my blog, and following. Your support is wonderful. The have to say i LOVE your Egret painting..hmmm I have been wanting to paint the Heron Sumi-e style for sometime now.

Cheers

Ingrid said...

Thank you Melanie, the heron was a quickie I did when we returned from Seaworld. I couldn't wait to get him down on paper. One of these paintings where you don't think, you just do!
Great to see you!

Hello Ingrid. I agree with you about this one being softer - it suits the subject.

Alice said...

It is a lovely painting ... those black face sheep are so cute ...I saw them when I went to Scotland many years ago.

I love your watercolours. Very delicate.

Once when me and some of my classmates were frustrated with our results our teacher said "for every painting in a gallery you'll find dozens back at the studio that were not successful. It's part of the process." I try to remember this when I'm frustrated and then I don't feel so alone.

I'll enjoy walking along side you from time to time to enjoy the views of Scotland.

Ingrid,
Just beautiful. I cannot paint but I see it in my mind. I am using the computer to make some of my art happen. You are so blessed to be able to paint with your hands and heart.

Once again a great capture I love how your love of life and nature pours out of your work

This is lovely Ingrid, I love the way the colours are all soft and runny, ending at a very sharp edge.

Ingrid said...

Hi Keith .. great to see you! Hope life is good. I like the softer effect, glad you do too. Hope to catch up with you soon!

Nice to see you Alice, and I am glad you like my painting, thanks for stopping by.

Welcome Artscapes .. I have dozens of paintings that are rubbish! I know it takes the practice on them that eventually leads to a successful painting. I love my own company and never feel lonely. I do not like the thought of anyone feeling alone, so please come here anytime you feel the need, and I will enjoy your company on this journey.

Carol .. wether from the computer or with a brush, our art is our way of expressing our feelings. You speak from the heart, it is there in your every word ...

Ralph, I hope you are sharing this gorgeous evening. I am looking out at the most beautiful blue sky ...
Thanks for your lovely comments and your encouragement.

Hi Frank ... I was painting somw flowers today which were all hard edges. I then gave myself a shake and introduced the water, lots of it, and what a difference. Good to see you!

Thank you 'all' you have made my day!

Ingrid said...
