The translucence of watercolour seems to lend itself to painting fragile and delicate subjects. A couple of years ago on a trip to the Waterberg in South Africa, I found a glass decoration which is hollow and contains the most delicate of dandelion seeds. It’s far too beautiful to put away for 11 month of the year so it sits in a bowl on a cabinet in the lounge. A tree decoration was on my list of things to paint so if course, as this is a challenge, I had to pick it as the subject for my Advent Day give away for Day 8.
Day 8 Advent Artist
The artist I’m sharing for Day 8 is Jess Stanley who creates fantastically detailed pictures of animals in coloured pencil. The level of detail in her work is astounding. She captures the character of each animal so well the viewer can almost imagine the figure is about to move.
