Petunia Piggy – ATC/ACEO No.2 – for World Watercolour Month

In case any of you missed yesterdays post, July is World Watercolour Month.  You can find out more about this, here:-   Doodlewash   <—click.  The challenge is to paint a watercolour a day for the month of July.  Now I know I won’t be able to paint a watercolour every day, but I’m going to try my hardest to paint as many days as possible and share them on the blog here.

Yesterday was a pot of Auriculas. Today is the turn of …  Petunia Pig.

Petunia is a folky sort of girl,Gloucestershire Old Spot (a pedigree pig) –  who has a love of grass and any thing she can eat in order to keep her fine figure.

Aw, enough of me waffling.  I shall share Petunia with you …  She’s painted in watercolours, on 140lb watercolour paper,  and she’s in ATC/ACEO size – so just 2.5″ x 3.5″.

No longer the baby … she’s a big girl now.  😀

Hope your Sunday was peaceful and that you found something to smile about.  Have a lovely rest of your day!

    • Hello ScrappyEsc
      Aw thank you for your beautiful comment. Bless your beautiful heart.
      I totally agree with you about the best thing being a contented cat. Ohh very much so!

  1. Ah, Petunia is a particularly pretty pig. I adore her curli-que tail and her “almost there” grin. I’m certain she’s quite proud to have been captured in watercolor while looking her best. If I was painted in watercolors, I should only HOPE to be looking and feeling my best. I think watercolors are a magical invention. Have you ever seen one that didn’t speak to your heart, in one emotion or another? I’m forever taken by them.

    • Ohhh you HAVE to buy some and let yourself play, Landrybaby!

      You could then blog your progress, and people would be so inspired that you’d done this. You’d be SO inspiring to others who, like you, would like to paint but don’t!

      Yes! Do it landry!
      Thank you so much for coming and for your lovely comment. It’s great chatting to you. ~ Cobs. x 😊


    • Hello Samantha!
      Aw what a fabulous little memory prompt Petunia has been, taking you back just a few years (only a few, because we all know you’re only 17 years old) to remember your pig story book when you were little! 🙂

      Thrilled you like her.
      Thank you so much for coming and for such a lovely comment.
      Have a blessed day Samantha! ~ Cobs. x

  2. Petunia the pig is precious. I’ve loved pigs since I read Charlotte’s Web when young. I also like the idea of these very small pieces of art. It seems it would be fun to arrange several complementary pieces on a wall. Surely people would approach them and really look at them as opposed to glancing at a large painting and thinking, “Oh, that’s nice,” and bustling along to the next item on their agendas.

    • You’re absolutely right! You have to properly see them rather than just get an idea of them, because they’re so small. They’re roughly the size of some business cards – so you can imagine that in your hand and visualise the size.

      I think you’d be great with them Aunt Beulah. Your personality and peacefulness makes me think that you and an ATC would get along. You should try it. You don’t have to do watercolours … you can use any paint that you have … or you can just decorate an ATC/ACEO in any style of your choosing – even glue and stick. So long as you don’t go over that magical size 2..5″ x 3.5″…. and that’s all there is to the rules!

    • Ohhhh I’d LOVE that Beverly!
      Aw how lovely. Little Baby Pigs are just SO adorable – apart from when you pick them up and they scream like billyo! Sheesh! You’d think they were being eaten alive instead of being given a cuddle. lol.
      Mind you, if a giant pig picked me up when I was little, I think I’d yell three colours of murder too. So all’s fair, (as my Grandma used to say). lol

  5. Hi Cobs, I’m somewhat significantly behind right now, so I’m stealing a few minutes in a desperate attempt to catch up! I’m loving Petunia, all piglike and all now… she was such a cute pigling as well. I’m replying on my mobile phone, which is taking forever – especially when it continues to auto correct pigling to ‘piling’. How very dare it. But… back to blogging. I will do this!

    • Actually LAUGHING OUT LOUD!!!

      Aww Tom… you’ve given me such a laugh here! I have this vision of you … sat somewhere in work (the loo? LOL!! ok, laughing again now!) trying to catch up on everyones blog posts which you’ve missed for … oh crumbs, I don’t know … three days?

      Now I know from experience (when I was a whittle bit poorly), that catching up with everyone took me hours … and hours… and I never thought I’d get there. But I can see from all the Orange Tom circles over on my ‘bell’ alerts, that you’re going for a gold medal in the Catching Up Event! Aw bless you, you funny, amazing chap.
      Glad you like Petunia Piggy. I bet she’s smiling at this comment too!
      (still got a chuckle going on here! LOL
