A new watercolour painting at last

I bought myself a new rubber stamp this week and tried it out with this new ATC, called Diamond Lil (not a very original name I know) but I had these large glass gems and didn't know what to do with them so............ I quite liked this to start with but think I should have added more detail but for the life of me I didn't know where to put it. Still it has been posted off to a new owner so it's too late now.

The amazing thing is that I have at last got my watyercolours out again, first time in ages and managed to complete a painting (2.5 x 3.5) but I can't call it an atc because I have put it up for sale on on Ebay. I have opened a shop again as my son has asked me to seel some more of his CD collection so I have decided to post a few paintings and see what happens. I also registered on Etsy a little while ago but have still not put up anything for sale on that site yet.
Anyway the painting is presented here, entitled, "Quiet Water". Hopefully the first of many more now that I have an Ebay shop to pay for.

I am here to thank you for visiting my Blog. And to tell you that I have found out that watercolor painting is hard! I tried it and you have no competition from me lol
But I do like watercolor pencils and then using the wet brush on it.
I also have to go to Ebay to see about your selling the water scene I just saw. It is exactly the image that my lare husband Bob and I used to go to when he went fishing!!! And I am hoping it is still for sale and not too expensive. And if I dont screw up on Ebay I I go to look for it.

Stunning piece of work John. Watercolours at ATC size is sOOOOOOO difficult
