A Beach Scene!

Hello Everyone and hoping all is well with you and yours and that you are still enjoying the gorgeous weather.

It's  been really hot today and after a trip to Nairn and the beach, I had to take to having a lie down this afternoon. The heat is marvellous but when your are not used to it it can zap you, anyway I had a nice read of my book and forty winks.

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my last card, all are appreciated, especially the time it takes. Welcome too to my new followers, one of which I don't know her name, and I'm guessing that it is a she and that she is either from Spain or languages are pants. Anyhow, it's lovely to have you here and I hope you pop in as often as you can.

I've something a wee bit different tonight and it's me pretending I'm an artist LOL!!

Another canvas for my bedroom wall, all painted by yours truly and I've added beach huts from Chocolate Baroque, and the grasses are by Tim Holtz, then some little shells. The ship out on the horizon is an Inkylicious stamp.
Just a side on view. I have to say that I'm chuffed with my sea, it's the first time of trying something like this, and I'm sure our friend Peter who is a fabulous artist would have a chuckle at my efforts, but then I'm not selling this, and Alistair who himself does paint, thinks it's fine.

Can hardly believe that's another week over and the start of July, it will be Christmas before we know it, scary really.

So folks that's me for now, going to have a catch up with your blogs and maybe at half time Alistair might make a cuppa.....yes it's still the footy here. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, and see you soon.

I would like to enter my canvas into Seaside challenge 136

I absolutely love this Kate and I’d be chuffed too if I’d painted a sea that looks yours. The colours are absolutely spot on. I’ve recently had a try at something similar by following a tutorial on YouTube and the outcome wasn’t too bad. I love the addition of the beach huts and grasses too to complete the perfect beach scene and how lovely to be able to hang a piece of your own artwork on the wall. The heat has been rather unusual for us hasn’t it and made even worse by those mid life tropical moments at my house lol. Fortunately, I have a fan that’s been on 24/7! Take care and I wish you a happy and colourful week. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

Enjoying the footie our end.... Yes another hot day, can you believe it in Scotland? Take it easy, as the hot weather can take it out on you x.
You are an artist Kate and such a beautiful piece of art. Isn't it satisfying when you've created it yourself? I love how you've combined your artistic talent with the stamps. Pop it on the wall with pride x.

Hi Kate,
I got so carried away with you lovely painting I forgot to say I too get very tired in this hot weather.
Tried commenting lunch time and kept falling asleep at the computer so I had to have a nap.

Hola Kate! Qué bonita creación, la profundidad del mar es fantástica y las casitas son una preciosidad, relaja mucho ver este paisaje veraniego!
He dado un paseo por tu blog y me ha gustado mucho, ya veo que compartimos pasión por los gatos! Me quedo de seguidora para no perderme nada!

What a clever idea to incorporate stamping into a painted canvas! Perfect for our challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenge. Thanks for sharing!

MaryH said...

I would be over the moon if I were able to compose and carry out something this prtty. Your sea and beach look wonderful, and great work on the white caps. Love the little beach huts and those bright sea grasses and flowers in the left corner. You can be justly proud of this Kate, and I would certainly want to display it. Well done! TFS & Hugs
