Stressed that it is way more important to get the tones right than worry about the exact colour.

<![CDATA[Demo for lesson on painting birds]]>Tue, 08 Apr 2014 09:00:43 GMThttp://www.susiemurphie.com/blog/demo-for-lesson-on-painting-birds

I love painting all sorts of birds and animals. The first part to paint is the eye. Get that right and then be as loose as you like with the rest of it.

<![CDATA[Little landscapes with limited palette]]>Fri, 22 Feb 2013 03:29:24 GMThttp://www.susiemurphie.com/blog/little-landscapes-with-limited-palette

This is a painting I did years ago. Small sketches done from photos randomly put together and given a touch of watercolour. I have written down Ultramarine Blue, Windsor Red (but looks more like burnt sienna or something) and two yellows...Indian and Transparent. Limited palette is a powerful thing so long as you leave plenty of white. Makes landscapes look great. Confident.

Daughter Bonnie wanted paintings for her place that would fit into small Ikea frames. She was very specific about what she wanted!
