This is on 300gm Arches Hot Pressed – 560×380 and the photo was taken by Ethan on his iPod because my camera has gone on a hike.
This was done on a quarter sheet of Arches 300gm Cold Pressed (380 x 280 mm)
I took a couple of photos of the old-folks with the family at The Pipe and created this watercolour on Saturday. As you can see Ma is carrying the little guys wet clothes as well as everyone else’s shoes. I love this. Isn’t this just what mothers do?

Last night I started another Beach Family watercolour. I am off now to do some work in my other life and hope to be able to do the next part of this painting tonight. We have real winter weather now with cold rain and, I am certain, snow on the mountains. My studio is icy. But I wrap up and this is such a fun project.
So… A presto
Last week I had a great surf with my boys and stole a few minutes after we had packed up to take some photos of the closing day. There was a family playing on the beach and I took some shots to paint in the studio. Here is the first watercolour:
