'New Hope' - Watercolour 2006

Here is my Mother's Day entry in my small moleskin sketchbook, using staedtler pigment liner, watercolour pencils and wash.


I hope your day was filled with moments that will serve as precious memories.

I'm really impressed by those watercolours. I especially like New Hope; really wonderful soft tones. Wish I could do that! Not being a mother myself, I did the cooking!

Thank you Dave!
Both of these paintings were given as gifts, the first is my Nephew's wife and child and the second my dear friend's first Grandchild.
I'm happy to say both were very pleased with them.
Well done on you for cooking dinner yesterday - most thoughtful!
