"Daisy" ... and a ~"Happy New Year"~
~Happy New Year"~ to you all!
I love this time of year, they say 'winter' officially starts on 21st December (the shortest day) and as far as I'm concerned Spring is just around the corner as soon as we reach January 1st! Lambs will soon appear in the fields, my 10ft Camellia is ready to burst into flower, snowdrops are popping their heads through the ground and the year is lying ahead for us to make the best of.
Have any of you made any New Year Resolutions? I want to make the best of each day, which I try to do anyway, and I hope to take my art a stage further by building a website.
"Daisy" is my first attempt with Watercolour Pencils. She is a lovely wee dog and belongs to friends who live in Somerset. I tried her first in watercolour, but wasn't happy with the result. I've no idea why I thought of pencil but feel happier with the result, and have to say I enjoyed every moment.
