Two posts in one, this one.

My entry for Six Word Saturday.

And my latest Watercolour Month painting.

I’ll leave the six words here. Bit tricky trying to get everything in. Especially with time being of the essence. Again!

Last year, as part of #WorldWatercolorMonth, I created this painting inspired by Sue Dreamwalker:

So this year, I’m doing it again. This time, the watercolour is inspired by Hollis, otherwise known as Visionkeeper, or VK as I call her.

It features a butterfly:

A tiger:

A whale:

Some leaves:

The Moon:

And a lighthouse and a watcher:

So, now to the whole painting:

It took me a couple of hours to complete, and once I started drawing the initial outline the other elements sprang to mind. Animals and people seem to be the main themes for me to paint this year… and it’s all good for me.

Hope you’re having a fabulous Saturday.

  1. Thank you TL….I haven’t a clue how I inspired you to paint this picture but it’s wonderful and I am very grateful for you thoughts and recognition….I guess all the creatures remind us of what we have to be grateful for. That gets lost in the proverbial garbage weighing us down. Stay light and fly above it 🙂 VK ❤

  7. Wow! I didn’t expect them all to come together. I was working through them, thinking that’s my favourite, no that’s my favourite….
    Very nice indeed, and the tiger is definitely calling to me.

    1. Thanks, Debbie.
      The tiger was fun to do, but further work is needed on his face, I feel.
