In a parallel universe, summer storms are very colourful....
I used watercolours our of a tube, and some gouache, and painted wet on wet. A little trick to disperse the paint is to add drops of soapy water (washing-up liquid) from the tip of a brush into the wet paint.)

Detail: See the full painting here

Ná bris do loigrín ar stól nach bhfuil i do shlí.
(Do not break your shin on a stool that is not in your way.)


  1. I would like a trip to your universe right now!!! We have a flooded basement and it's miserably hot outside. Now that you have heard my whine, I like the picture and appreciate the advice about soapy water. I am doing beginning backgrounds right now :-)

    Are you using more color in your pictures lately or am I just beginning to SEE!!!

    Big hugs,

  2. Your colourful water colour led me straight to your shop...... you are truly an inspiration! So many wonderful items... I'll have one of each... xoxo

  3. Beautiful, colorful, fresh and ... very zen!
