As well as cross stitching I do drawing and watercolour painting.
I painted this last year and was so pleased with it. It also placed 2nd in a show last year.
The picture is from an artist called David Bellamy not the person you might be thinking of, he paints in watercolours. I have copied his work but used what colours I like,
This one I painted at the same time as the above one. Again another David Bellamy copy and someone loved it so much it came in first place this year. My first win in 1st
Both of these designs were taken from a local painter Jackie Hadwin I repainted them from cards I bought from her. As they have been entered on shows only the red squirrel has won 2nd a few years ago. Shame as I love them
My own design something quick with left over colours
