Hello springtime crocus

Hello - hope all well with you wherever you are in the world :)
Had a week of winds/gales and heavy rain here, but thankfully today the sun is shining once again and the wind a bit lighter (which makes the birds happier too) and it feels more spring like :)

Jo from Lets Art Journal  is hosting AJJ this month with the theme of 'hello Springtime'

  My piece today for AJJ is a watercolour using Jackson watercolours and WHSmith watercolour pencils - with words added on digitally.

 Sorry not around last week, I am behind as busy making a few items for a raffle (which I just found out about) for my hairdressers sponsored seaside walk for a local hospice on April 7th. So far, have made some cards to make into a gift pack. 

 Will catch up with you asap..
thank you for stopping by.
Have a lovely day.

  12. I'm playing catch-up after being without internet for nearly a week. Your crocuses are beautiful. I am in LOVE with your painting. You paint so well. Thanks, too, for sharing this beauty honoring Jo's theme, at Art Journal Journey.

  14. So lovely, the crocus... I look forward to seeing them this season. Thanks for the preview!

  15. This is such a lovely watercolour. The blue crocuses are bursting with Springtime energy and are a gorgeous blue colour. I love the loose background too, looks so Springlike.
    Lucky people who got one of your card packs. That's clever how you have used the same designs but with different colours and placements and coloured fonts.
