A local printer is now producing my Cards.
They will be for sale here on this site.
It all started when a customer wanted to buy 25 on FineArtAmerica.
They would not give the advertised discount unless. they bought the same card and not a variety.
So now, gradually, I am sending my files to my printer that will produce them.
It is done quickly but takes some time to download on the site.
I hope you will visit as it comes.
Yesterday was a lovely day...
I had the visit of my family.
With them, I was looking through old portfolios and I found my lost watercolour
It has been now added to the portfolio Still Life
I noticed I could not open the pictures showing the paintings for sale.
After searching and contacting Weebly, I found out I had not downloaded
So, I am once more doing photos of the paintings and reposting them on each painting for sale!
Be patient... and sorry if you have tried to view the work enlarged and it did not work!
Call it Learning curve
We are currently building a new Online Gallery with the works of Beatrice Cloake NAPA.
Some works are from her own collection. They have been kept privately until now when the family has to make place for new paintings.
Collectors are invited to come back to visit the site as from now on, all her paintings for sale will be added on her watercolour website.
I am responding here to one received email...
Is Acrylic a watercolour medium?
Yes. It is now considered by Watercolour societies as being a watercolour medium.
But... it needs to be applied very diluted, as thin as watercolour.
Beautiful effects can be achieved without disturbing a first layer. The surface (paper) will need to be stretched as Acrylic will buckle the paper. It will not be possible to make it flat.
Some Acrylics are sold, either heavy, light etc... I would suggest that the fluid acrylic should be used.
Personally, I have done very few paintings on paper.
The watercolours on this site are 90% of the time Pure Watercolour
