Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!

Better late than never.I have deserted my blog for a long time but now back finally.
The good news is that I have been busy with commissions but, must admit to some holiday laziness too.
In Hong Kong we have another holiday on the 31st too, so am going to make my resolutions for the Chinese New Year.....

Dim Sum No 1

Har Gao, prawn dumplings.
After sketching these for the Arthouse Sketchbook a few years ago, I always wanted to do some watercolour versions.
Finished this before last week's exhibition (with four other artists) and it sold before I got to post it.
A very nice feeling
I'm thinking of including this (or a range of dim sum) in the limited edition prints.....
what would you like to see as prints?

yet more chili peppers

work in progress, not sure whether to paint the little peppers or not

Another wave

Small typhoon wave from a photo  (looks more dramatic than it was, artistic license or the angle it was taken), taken after my swim today......still calm over here ........

Red Cabbage

I was so happy to find a red cabbage  but this cabbage has been driving me crazy........begged me to buy it, got it home and found out why is was cheap - teasing me with it's very pungent aroma, distracting me from what I should have been doing today.
Then finally frustrating me with it's front leaves.
