Spinning Wheel


Are you looking for my second Hahnemuhle The Natural Line Giveaway? You can find it here.

#DoodlewashMay2021 prompt: Wheel.  

Did you know that the spindle of a spinning wheel is generally not sharp enough to prick a finger on, despite Sleeping Beauty’s well-known mishap? 

I didn’t have much time for today’s prompt, so I grabbed one of my earlier backgrounds made with Butterfly Peaflower Tea and did a quick Spinning Wheel. They’re interesting objects and one of these days I want to spend more time painting one.

Artwork: Daniel Smith watercolor & Butterfly Peaflower tea on Hahnemühle Agave Cold-Press watercolor paper with Zenart Black Tulip brushes.

  1. I’d love to have one of these spinning wheels – don’t know where I’d put it- but I’d learn how to use it.

  2. We used to haunt antique stores where spinning wheels were common. Your painting reminded me of many fun excursions. Not only are spinning wheels uncommon now, so are the antique stores – at least where I live.

  3. My aunt both spun and wove. She spinning wheels and more than one huge wooden looms in her home. This brought back memories….and a few fairytales to mind!
