Borrowed it, Painted it!

Hi Everybody

Following on from the announcement of my new personal paintings website I thought that this quick post would be something a little different from my usual posts.

I am sure many of you are fans of the blog by Paige Nicholl, “Stories from a small village”.

On her blog she always has lovely photos, often of the beautiful New England countryside and coast and some of her recent ones have been no exception.

So I asked if I might use her photos as subjects for  watercolours, which she kindly agreed to, and so here are two taken from very recent posts by her. Many thanks, Paige.

I have included the originals as well as my interpretation and I hope you and Paige will like them!

Next year we plan another visit to New England, it is beautiful part of the world, not just in the Fall but throughout the year and we have enjoyed vacations and painting there before.

Happy travelling!

About brianswatercolours

After spending 40 years in Aerospace I now enjoy painting watercolours of our travels around the world. I also paint for others who would like reminders of there favourite places. Most of my paintings are painted from photos that I have taken, or taken by others. This blog shows some paintings from Yvonne's and my travels together. Have look at my other Blog

  1. Oh my … I think I like your paintings better than my photos!! Your interpretation of that lake scene especially is just wonderful! I am happy to be able to provide you with artistic inspiration and, as I’ve said before, I think your paintings are fantastic. Thanks for letting me be part of this. : )

  2. Many thanks ~Paige, glad they were okay with you!

  3. Hi Brian
    I have just nominated you on my blog for The Liebster Award. This is a way to bring recognition to less well known bloggers. If you’d like to take part, have a look at what I have done on my blog ( and then do something similar on your blog – nominating up to six bloggers whom you think deserve a wider audience. I simply cut and pasted the questions I had been sent. Good luck!

  4. Nicely done! When I saw that first picture I commented to Paige that she should print it big and hang it on her wall.
