I was commissioned to do this watercolour painting of my friends dog Molly as a birthday gift. I tried to capture the loving expression in the dogs eyes. Needless to say the artwork was very much appreciated and a few tears of happiness were shed.

I am trying to paint in watercolour without doing to much drawing first. I was pleased with this attempt.My Dad used to grow lovely roses and Sweer Williams. He always gave Mum red roses on her birthday or wedding anniversary. Sadly they both died a few years ago but painting these flowers brought back happy memories.
