Painting again

I have just started the hard but satisfying journey of picking up a paintbrush once again. I seem to be able to achieve the desired results in other art forms, but painting is always difficult - rarely am I satisfied with the results - thus it is a constant challenge for me, but one which is so rewarding when it 'comes together'.
These are details of the current painting - only small - about 250mm x 300mm - I'm not showing you the whole picture 'cos I'm not happy with it, but I oh so love these details:
 
 - just like I love the peeling paint on the table on the deck.

  2. N- great you are back into the painting. Thanks for dropping by on Saturday - Christine's chandelier is pretty amazing - though I have not had time to dismantle or clean bits; and the chocolate coated macadamias were a treat. Go well. B

  5. Oh, thank you dear friends for the encouragement and comforting words. I'm thinking of literally cutting out the 'good bits' and gluing them onto a new canvas. Leslie, wish you were here to help me loosen up xoxoxox

  6. Dear Noela-
    Been following your blog for a little while now, spec. Your Moroccan journey (fantastic). I think your paintings are beautiful, want to see the entire work though, not just parts you like :)

    You've inspired me to post some recent watercolors on my blog. They'll be up later on today. If you'd like to view:

  7. Beautiful pieces. Just been reading Da Vinci encouraging artists to observe old walls for their textures. Talk about ahead of his times.
