Watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm – 8″ × 12″ . Imaginary Wisteria – my grand-daughter spent the day with me on Saturday (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa) and she asked me to do a demo on wet-in-wet with no sketching, this is the painting that happened! We sat and sketched together for most the day, most enjoyable! I have added one of her paintings. I just LOVE how her flowers and blue vase turned out! She did hers in Pastels.

Wisteria Purple Mystery Mysterious Wisteria Purple lady mysterious, Drooping lovely over me, Your hair dropping petals to the wind. . You wane upon my window sill And shed your life with grace With every fallen purple flower I watch each passing face. . Wisteria, fragrant with loveliness fragrance so delirious Wisteria, purple lady mysterious, Fleeting as the days of spring…. . Wisteria Does time not take its toll? Die with grace & beauty For death can’t touch your Soul. by Michael A. Guy
I am a watercolorist living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa. The inspiration for my art is the wonderfully rich variety of Fauna and Flora to be found throughout this beautiful country. “There is a fine line between dreams and reality; it’s up to you to draw it.”
