Working on this one again. She is a combination of colour pencil and pastel pencils on pastel paper. It's a much coarser surface than I'm used to. Fun trying something different :)

Progress update. 5 hours of kid free painting today 😊 I love using watercolours even though this is proving very time consuming 😳 Nice though to get lost in the details. Oh and it's Friday! Have a good weekend 👍

Zero point one percent of the way into this artwork. Nothing substantial to see yet, only pretty colours :) #watercolourpaint #watercolourpencils
I love this photo from Tessa Barton's blog :) #bohemianstyle
If you're going to San Francisco be sure to wear flowers in your hair ~ Researching the infamous Summer of Love for an artwork that will be part of the Flower Child exhibiting at @moderneden ~ This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the infamous Summer of 1967 in San Fran! Also spending the day listening to the music from The Monterey Pop Festival :) #mamasandpapas #summeroflove2017 #summeroflove #montereypopfestival #sanfrancisco

Had to start again!!!! Remember the piece I was working on for the Metal Lover show? Dropped a brush, loaded with metallic paint on it, was ruined 😕 So here's my new piece for the show!

Making some progress while Bridget sleeps. Mixing panpastel colours for the skin tone on paper with the soft tool. Then refining the detail with pencil. This piece is for a group show with @prismacollective at @moderneden gallery. The show is 'heavy metal lover' and we are all working with metal leaf and shiny stuff! You'll see some shiny silver bits soon as I make more progress on her body :) #drawing #art #pencildrawing #portraitdrawing #wip

Happy New Year!! 2016 was a bit of a quiet year for me on the art front. I think this little munchkin has had a lot to do with it!! This year we have a house move coming up soon but hopefully it will be the last move for a long time (think we are buying our first house)!! So this means hopefully a permanent studio set up and Bridget will be starting day care a couple of days a week. Wow she has grown so quick! I hope everyone has an amazing year ahead :)
