The My 7 Links Project was generated by TripBase to "unite bloggers (from all sectors) in a joint endeavour to share lessons learned and create a bank of long but not forgotten blog posts that deserve to see the light of day again." Bloggers list their Top 7 Links in the following categories...

Thankyou Katharyn Ragan of Studio at the Farm  blog  for tagging me for this project 


prehaps collectively my 100 watercolour washes challenge posts which are grouped together in "100 washes page" have been the most inspiring and stimulating  not always beautiful but definately my  favorite  posts

watercolour wash # 26

" watercolour wash #24"

My most popular post 

This post has received the most comments 

the following  posts are a few of  the "popular posts" listed by google   




My most controversial post 

As  I  write very little with each post I feel I don't have a controversial post ............I hope my sketches, studies and watercolours speak for themselves .....I often post a painting with just the title   ... a visual diary of my work in progress ... good , bad  , unfinished , finished  ...I value everyone who takes the time to leave a comment 

My most helpful post  

A couple of posts that have inspired fellow bloggers 


Irina asked if she could copy my painting as a learning exercise last week ..have a look at her beautiful painting ... irina's painting and stuff blog.

"watercolour wash # 30"

Rhonda carpenter  "WATERCOLOUR and WORDS" blog was inspired by the effects created with salt of watercolour wash # 30 she tried the same approach here is a link to Rhonda's wash   

The post who's success surprised me

The following posts from workshops and exercises inspired by watercolour books have far the most hints  

"Jean Haines watercolour with life workshop" 

"Watercolour by  Jean Morelle Rosehips inspired by Ewa Karpinkska step by step" 

"woodland scene inspired by The Atmospheric Landscape The Tao of Watercolour by Jeanne Carbonetti"

The post I feel didn't get the attention it deserved 
I made a slide show of a few paintings of old doors at the very beginning of my blog as the images have disappearred  I thought I 'd post a couple of them here.

"old door latch"
special thanks to  Kay Smith for the reference photo

"old door handle "
special thanks to  Kay Smith for the reference photo 

The post I am most proud of first solo watercolour exhibition a couple of paintings from the show  


Finally, my seven  nominated artists to take part in the 7 Links Project are 7 artist ... my " fellow washers"  a wonderful group of artist who i've enjoyed  partIcipating with in the One Hundred Wash challenge  over the last year :.... thankyou all !

What a pleasure to see these paintings again, Jane - thanks so much for sharing them again with us (and I hadn't seen the old doors so glad to visit them again - love old doors).

Olivia ha detto...

Wonderful idea Jane!

I remember the first one, colors were always in my mind. I also loved your hortensias and old buttons.
100 washes challenge is a great experiment. I am a bit sad it's quite finish...

Now, I have to think about my 7 links projects... Carrie Waller sent it to me few weeks ( or months ) ago. I didn't take time to do it. I am a bas girl sometimes, I know. Now I have to do it ! Today, I am working on "four seasons washes ". Already 3 painted. I will post them soon.

What a fabulous post, Jane. It's really a treat to see your work highlighted again like this alongside your added thoughts. I hadn't seen your old doors either. So sad they didn't get the attention they deserved - they're lovely ... especially the old door handle.

Thanks for nominating me to take a 7 Links Project .. I'll do my best but you're a tough act to follow, lol. xx
