ANOTHER SCAM! this time regarding Payment by BACS


Another scam is running about. These scammers never get short of ideas!

This time, I have received many emails by various individuals
kindly letting me know that My Payment with BACS had been well received.

With of course a PDF to open!

These days I do make payments with BACS. It is very practical.
I am not silly though, I can  check the name of those I have paid.

My advice to any of you, is DO NOT OPEN the PDF! It is a virus.

Instead, check your bank account. You will see that nothing has been paid to them through BACs.

So nothing to do!

Watercolour with White horse

It has been a long time since I have posted a new painting on this blog!

Watercolour with peonies


I do my very best trying to catch up this blog...

I have just finished a watercolour that has taken quite a while to execute
I had these beautiful peonies bought in Waitrose!!!
Who can resist them??? I cannot.

At last I have painted some in 2019


Peonies galore

Executed on Arches paper with Rembrandt watercolour

Coloured pencils Portraits

It has been a long time I have posted on this blog!

I suppose being so busy running about and creating took a lot of my time.
So updating now with 3 portraits done with coloured pencils.

The first one is the portrait of Eliza. I used Sanded Paper (not the one used for DIY) but artist one that can be found with Jacksons online.
I have used artist quality coloured pencils

My second coloured pencils painting was executed with artists quality pencils
but this time on Mount Board.

My third portrait was executed once more on Sanded paper.
I did cover the background with pencils but could not carry on the same colour around the paper.
I am still in the experimental stage and so, I decided to use a Pastel pencil that I never ever use as I react to the dust of Pastel.
I covered my face and went for it...
