Acrylic painting - Old Boots

With the greatest reluctance I finally had to concede that it was time to buy myself a new pair of boots.  I had become rather attached to this pair and do still wear them around the garden.  There's nothing really wrong with them as long as it's dry.

This is an acrylic painting on a box canvas.

Watercolour House Portrait Commission

Two months into the year and this is my first post. I have been neglecting the diary and will attempt to get back up to date.  This will mean some serious posting as we have loads of new paintings to show you. I'll start with a watercolour painting which was a commission of a house in the Charente.

The second painting is also a watercolour, of our local hamlet.  I started this while we were at a market with our paintings.  Working while trying to sell is a good talking point and attracts a bit more interest.  It also demonstrates that we really are the creators of the paintings which we are displaying.  A lot of people ask this question.
