It’s a rainy day here. A perfect day to make some more “one of a kind cards”. “Duke and Princess”. Years ago I did a painting similar to this one. At that time I considered it a turning point in my watercolor work. I left it up to the viewer to decide which one is Duke and which one is Princess. I am doing that again this time.
“Fiona” is “Hamish’s” sister. You may remember Hamish from last year. He was a 9″ x 11″ painting. Now hanging in a friend’s home. Fiona is a card I made for another friends birthday. Fiona seems to have managed to get herself into the same predicament as Hamish!

World Watercolor Month Day 26 prompt “Favorite Song”. We are a music loving household. That made it difficult to choose one song. There have been so many artists that we have listened to over many years. Our play list is long and varied. There is one song that I sing to myself often enough to single out and that is Rhythm of My Heart by Rod Stewart. The verse and the bagpipes pull at my heart. I created this painting with QoR watercolors and Pixma Micron ink on Strathmore card stock.

“Thistle” #WorldWatercolorGroup original art by Susan Feniak. Holbein Artists Water Color and Faber-Castell PITT artist pens on Strathmore 140 lb cold press paper. 11″ x 15″. Another bit of Scotland. Enjoy! PEACE
“Hairy Beasty” #WorldWatercolorGroup original art by Susan Feniak. Holbein Artists Water Colour on Strathmore 140lb Cold Press 11″ x 15″ paper. I also used my Faber-Castell PITT artist pens and white GellyRoll pen. Pretty sure I want to get myself some more colors of GellyRoll. A beige would look better then white in this particular painting. I am inspired by this highlander. Most likely because I love all things Scottish. Hope you have a grand week. Cheers! PEACE
“Lighthouse” #WorldWatercolorGroup The prompt for September 7. This is Stoer Lighthouse. Situated on Stoer Head north of Lochinver in North West Scotland. Dating from the 1870’s. I painted this from a photo I took while at the lighthouse about ten years ago. It was a blustery day and the clouds lay wet and low over the sea. The views and surrounding coastline are spectacular.

Original Quick Sketch By Susan Feniak Hobein Water Colors, Pigma Pens on Cranson Mix Media Paper.
Its been awhile since I last visited the Highlands of Scotland but I do remember the sheep lining the roads. They would sedately munch beside the tarmac and watch the few vehicles roll on by. We as tourists had to snap a few photos before moving along. Perhaps all the rain here today reminded me of my ancestral home. I have nothing but fond memories of Scotland and my times spent there. I will gladly visit again one day. Hope you enjoy my quick sketch of some fun memories.

Scotland. Another muse? After being to Scotland three times this scene is a particular favorite of mine. My third attempt at painting it! Hopefully I have been more successful capturing the essence of Scotland and Inveraray with this version then I did with my first two attempts. I will admit that perhaps I tackled the first two a tad early for a beginner. I may just post a comparison sometime to prove my point.
This is a bigger then usual canvas for me and I took my time. A lot of time! The bridge does indeed have that blue tinge to it.
Now I better get back to reality and work!
As always your comments are welcome. This painting is for sale although you may have to wrestle it out of my hands! That being said my husband would probably gladly give it away!
