Announcement   Julia welcomes you to her enchanted world of art.

You will find here beautiful watercolors painted on verses by Best of Classic British Writers. This shop was created with hope to return life to old and forgotten pages of British Classics by such fine authors as: Robert Burns, Robert Stevenson, William Shakespeare, Robert Browning, Elizabeth Barret Browning, Jane Austeen and many more.

It is thanks to generous donation from AbbeyBooks that we can use old books which otherwise would be recycled. I was very upset to realize that old books that are not suitable for resale are simply sent off and recycled. After some brain storming I've came up with an idea of painting on their pages. I do not use any books that are in good condition and could be resold.

Pet portraits or favorite animal painted on a book page will make wonderful gift. Beautiful verses in the background add poetic dimension to this very special gift.
Please see my listing for more details: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/110037210/custom-portrait-of-your-pet-or-horse-on?ref=shop_home_feat

You can rest assured that your watercolour will arrive in immaculate condition. I have years of experience and most of my art work is shipped to USA, Canada and Australia. To secure your beautiful painting I use extra secure, heavy duty packaging. You will receive quality piece of original art in a professional packaging. ( I do not sell prints, the piece you will receive is an original art)

Enjoy your visit,

Julia

The paintings were beautiful. I did not have a good picture of one of my cats and she was able to use several of the pictures to build a composite picture that was just wonderful.

About

Animal and Nature captured in Watercolour

Hi and welcome to my watercolour shop/gallery. This little Etsy shop presents you with my most recent small watercolour pieces that are pained with heart and joy and are also very affordable.

Each piece is hand painted by me, professional artist, graduate with (Hons) Degree in Fine Art.

I work from my studio in Scotland. It is the place where I like to relax, read, learn and bring to life my colourful ideas.

I love painting animals and nature, sometimes I like them to look more realistic and another time I like to add some extra colours and create a painting that not only captures the mood of the place and spirit of the animal but also is "fun".

Big part of my work is painted on book pages, this are not any book pages but pages from the books that would otherwise be recycled. I like thew idea of giving them new life, returning them to poetry and novel lovers in a slightly different form.

    Nature is my great love and inspiration. In each of my portraits I aim to capture light and movement to find the magic of life in each living creature.

I am in love with my picture and show it to every one who knew Rango....I cant thank you enough, you will never know how special this is to me, and again thank you from the bottom of my heart! I hope to stay in touch and get another picture painted of our other "fur babies" please keep up the good work and thank you thank you thank you!!! God bless.

I want to thank you so much for the thoughtful touches - the wrapping and the note. My daughter begged to unwrap it, carefully saving the ribbon and wrapping paper - we especially loved the "Made in Scotland" stickers. As much as we loved the presentation though, we were over the moon when we saw the portraits. As much as I love them all, the portrait of Tilda brought tears to my eyes - she was my very first "baby" and I miss her still. It captures her spirit so beautifully and will be something I cherish.

Thank you so very much for the time and care that you put into these - you are obviously very talented as an artist, but I especially appreciate that you put so much caring into their creation. I am beyond thrilled with them and will be hanging them immediately!
