Latest Artwork // Rainbow Trout

Rainbow Trout Watercolour Painting Katrina Sophia

I painted this on the other day. Thank you, Fee for your suggestion! I love how colourful Rainbow trout is. Adding black spots were both fun and daunting (as to whether I was going to ruin the whole painting! But look like I didn’t. Right?).

Check out my mackerel and salmon painting if you haven’t yet.

Charity Shop Finds

As you may or may not know, we have moved! We have moved from Elephant & Castle to Lee Green. Moving in Lee means we now live a little further away from central but we pay the same cost of rent for much bigger place, which we are over the moon about. The house has two bedrooms and one of them with wood floor is now my studio! Aneurin’s commute to work (he is a web developer and works in Soho) is not too bad, he is just having to leave 15 minutes earlier than usual. We are also relieved that our new place is warm and well maintained, unlike our old flat – living there over the cold months was terrible.

Where we are living, are close to lot of things – train stations (four!!), parks, restaurants and town centres. On the other day, I checked out Eltham High Street for the first time and it was a nice town with surprisingly friendly people. I might be dreaming but I felt that people were friendler than those I’ve encountered in my old area.

There are three or four good charity shops and naturally I am pleased about them. I bought those lovely plates and espresso cups from one of them for only £4. I am big on thrifting – the minute I walk in one of those shops, I always find something beautiful AND cheap. Knowing that money is going to the charity is a big bonus!
