    Hi all
    My name is Lesley. I have many health issues which means I dont get out very often.  I am also a watercolour artist who sees in sepia through one eye because of a cataract and have very blurred vision in the other eye.
    Just like to say "give art a go!".
    I used to be super critical of my work and making a mark on a virgin piece of paper was so scarey only those who try watercolour can understand.  My process now begins with "I am just playing" and I try to make a mark every day if only doodles of things I can see.
    This painting came from my imagination and was painted with a left over blob of blue I had on my pallet, indigo I think. My daughter saw it and it had strangely disappeared when she left.  ;)

    Hello and Welcome @Shelly61 I see you are already finding your way around the forum nicely. Do let us know if you need anything or have any questions :)

    @Sorsha that is a fabulous painting, it's got a really atmospheric sky, moody, like a stormy day but a lot less grey! I'm not surprised it's disappeared.

    Hi @Grinchy I thought that, I thought it was me but have looked several times for kaleidoscope and it is not there. The question is where has it gone ?

    Hi @Grinchy @Teddybear12 & @Sandy_123 - The 'Kaleidoscope ' thread is thankfully back - it really is so good to see original artwork & crafts. Wishing I had some of the talent you all show!

    I only put my sketches on, why was it taken off.
