Here’s my ‘updated’ version of the Christmas card I mentioned in my last post. I’m quite pleased with it, truth be told and though there’s a few things I’d like to change, watercolours can be quite unforgiving. Once something dries, it’s not an easy thing to get rid of (nigh on impossible, in fact!).

I’ve toyed with the idea of adding ‘Christmas’ in the title but I’m a bit wary of that. ‘Winter’ feels the better option at the moment. If there’s anyone out there reading this, what do you think? I’m trying to steer away from anything too tacky.

I’m intending on getting some giclee prints made of my picture and selling them anywhere I can. A percentage of any sold will go to the restoration appeal for the grave of John William Waterhouse (who, of course, did the original). There’s a Facebook page set up for the appeal which you can find here. Must say though, I’m a bit miffed the original urn that has been there since he was buried will not be a part of the restoration. I really liked that urn!

Anyway, hope you like the painting. My ‘gothic’ version is up and running too, so keep watching this space 🙂

I’m outta here,
