Watercolor Painting

I’ve been trying to teach myself to paint. I didn’t want to have a gazillion loose amateurish paintings laying around so I decided to use books. This way I can have a chronological, easy to store, record of my progress. I am now finishing up my third volume. I started with pencil drawings, then moved on to watercolors.

Woolies on Etsy

I’ve recently reposted my wool circles and a few wool kits on Etsy. I had these for sale a few years ago, then got busy and let them lapse. But they are back again, at least for now! https://www.etsy.com/shop/AshtonPublications?section_id=5447293&ref=shopsection_leftnav_4IMG_5981IMG_5987
