Happy June and Watercolour Fun!

Well it’s now June – the month that Summer officially begins – but if the weather has been anything like it has here the last few days (wet and cold!) then I hope my summery ice lolly painting will help brighten up your day!

I’ve even turned it into this months downloadable desktop calendar which you can download when you sign up to my mailing list here. If you’re already on the list then you’ll get yours in the next newsletter which goes out later today.

In between my client projects I’ve still been managing to have some fun with my watercolours.  I took the second part of Yao Chen’s brilliant watercolour class which focuses on painting florals and I loved it!  Here are some of the paintings I’ve been doing as a result.  She walks you through, step by step, how to paint different flowers. My favourite was the Peony, I love Peonies and was really pleased with my first attempt!

Once I’d practised a bit more I started experimenting with my own flowers…

Then I got a bit braver and experimented with painting other things, not just florals, like this watercolour wedding cake….Watercolour Wedding Cake by Rebecca Stoner www.rebeccastoner.co.uk

 

….and this Bride and Groom

I even turned these paintings into some new Wedding Cards which are now listed in my shop!  So a daily art practise, even if it’s not for a specific project, is always worth it and always useful.  Not just for developing your practise and your style but you never know what you might come up with and what you can use it for!

I’m also busy working behind the scenes with my very talented brother-in-law developing a brand new website which I can’t wait to share when it’s all finished, so watch this space!
I hope you’re having a good start to June and would love to hear what your plans are and how you’ve been doing in your own personal art practise – let me know in the comments below :-)
Catch up again soon,
