A Tea Party On The Wild Side

Medium: Oils on canvas
Title: A Tea Party On The Wild Side

This piece of art is for a flower show coming up in August. I wanted to keep the topic fun and reflect summer and nature, perfect for a flower show. I went down the more illustrative style with this one. I won first prize last year fingers crossed I retain my title this year.




Decorative Designing on objects

This was initially just a plain cream/ beige box for bits and bobs which had seen better days. I painted and decorated it and it has been given a new lease of life now.

Medium: Acrylic



Mural

Medium: Acrylic and Gouache on wall
Title: Looking Out

This is my first wall mural it's been painted in a bathroom. The first image is of the first/ initial sketch I roughly drew out in pastels to see what would work and what kind of colours went well together. I did deviate a little from the initial design, a strip of shrubbery was added on to the central image of the final piece and I completely changed the boarder in the end. All the images following the initial pastel sketch are of the final mural.










Bee Collection

Medium: Oils on canvas
Title: Bee Witched

This is the first piece from my 'Bee Collection' designs where I am creating a number of pieces of art work in which I play on the letter ' B' or a word beginning with 'be' replacing it with the word ' Bee' and the images will reflect this portraying a bumble bee in different scenarios according to the titles of each work. As I create them I shall pop them on here.


Safari Animals

Medium: Watercolours on watercolour paper

This is a collection of designs I'm working on for greeting cards I'm still in the process of painting the collection. I'll probably have about 10 designs in total when I'm finished. The image of the rhino is still a work in progress but I put it up anyway. Watercolours are not my usual medium but I dabble in it once in a while.








The Big Apple


Medium: Watercolours on water colour paper



This was just a bit of fun with watercolours and  creating a quick illustrative piece.
