Blue Horse

I have put three of my paintings into the Mattara Art competition which is showing this week here in Newcastle. Some excellent works from many very talented artists. Each year everyone gets better and better.
I always try to work out what people people might want to buy, so, last year I put in scenes of Newcastle and for some reason everyone seemed interested in animals and flowers...this year I put in horses and a portrait and everyone seems interested in scenes of Newcastle!!! I cant seem to get it right. This year's judge must have had a thing for watercolour as most of the winning entries were watercolours -
I am very pressed for time right now but am trying to sneak away for some painting time and horses are very therapeutic for me. I enjoy just mucking about with the colours...and I really feel the need to paint.
