Framing a Few Watercolours

It’s a funny thing, but I keep finding old paintings in the attic that I actually like a lot better now than when I made them.

Stuff I made several years ago, which I considered to be not worthy of a frame.

Now I look at them with the memory of all the hard work it took to get there, and the path it led me into.

I realized that they’re actually quite special to me, and that they therefore deserve a more dignified existence.

So I just had to get them behind a frame right away.

The first one is a painting I made in 2019, I think, featuring a busy harbour in a summer evening.

The second one is a painting based on a tutorial by the great UK artist Tim Wilmot.

At the time I thought they were OK, but now I feel quite proud of how they turned out.

This change of direction, which I mentioned in my last post, has really given me a new view on this old stuff.

It’s kind of that feeling when you move to a new place, and go throuh all of your old stuff that’s just been lying around, all forgotten.

Suddenly it brings you a new kind of joy.

So there might just be a few more of these popping into a frame soon.

Anyway, I hope you are having a great day, and that you’re doing alright πŸ™‚

  1. The old work looks great! Never look at paintings you just did wait a couple of weeks and come back with fresh eyes.

  2. Beautiful it’s strange how good paintings look when you leave them alone for a while. Your biggest critic is yourself, you don’t realise just how good you are. I look forward to seeing more 😊

I would love it if you left me a few words
