Hi all, happy New Year!

(Sara Leigh Thornton) #5

Hello :slight_smile:

My new years resolution is to try and remember to join in here more often!

I’ll have to show a re-list at the moment, as I haven’t got around to photographing my newest paintings.


Happy New Year, everyone! All your artworks are so lovely! One of my resolutions is to sketch more often as I normally paint straight into the canvas images I have in my head. It’s nothing wrong with it as long as it works for me, but at the same time, I would like to have a proper sketchbook that I can look back every once in a while for inspiration. Also, when I visit other artists’ studios, I always admire their sketchbooks. So here are my first sketches of the year:

Happy New Year to you all…fab work as always…we all have different styles which is what makes it all so interesting.

Cute duckling, Wildyabstract :slight_smile:

Brenda - fab to see green from you lol! I love your usual purples, but green will always be my favourite colour :slight_smile:

I need to take better pics of these, but here are a few more skating bunny ACEOs, in a slightly different style of colouring this time.

Random art, just because!

Thanks Sara, for some reason, I felt drawn to the green…perhaps it is the longing for Spring greens outside…
Great work folksy…are those the contestants from dancing on ice Sara…lol
Love the balloon too
The duck is awesome and that almost looks like a bunny on his tummy…

Bramley cards…I love cyclamen…such a pretty card
