Sometimes it's good to try something different!
Recently I have been enjoying painting in a style something like pointillism.
I have also been experimenting with mixed media and a slightly more abstract approach.
Even more adventurously, I have been experimenting with creating "paintings" with
pure wool fibres using a wet felting technique.
Here are some of the results!
Below are some small paintings using various elements which give texture, and fluid acrylics or acrylic inks.

Each painting is wet-felted using dyed merino wools, and when dry, a little detail is added using embroidery threads.
Original paintings on heart-shaped slates make lovely gifts. I paint them in acrylic paint and then they are lightly varnished.
Here is a slate depicting a goldfinch. So endearing!
