Leanne's House Block #3 & Something Completely Different

Block #3 of Leanne's House is finally done! I got distracted by Frosty Knotgarden and other passtimes, but got back to it and managed to get it completed. It will be two weeks before block #4 arrives.



o-o-o

And then, for the 'Completely Different' part:

I took some more watercolour painting tuition on Thursday. It had been a year (yes, I know!) since I had last painted and I needed some encouragement and refreshment. An entirely white piece of watercolour paper can get a bit overwhelming.

It very quickly came back to me and my very kind painting tutor and I spent a lovely day painting and having a gorgeous lunch in a bistro's garden.

The result was these two landscapes.




I'm not too happy about the rocks in the foreground, but practise will make perfect, I hope ;o)
Thanks for all your nice comments and birthday wishes.
