Apple Drops Watercolour

Image

I was planning on sticking to black and white for a while, but then I found some lovely fabriano card with a 400 gsm weight, and I had to try this idea which was floating in my head for a while- apple drops were always a favourite sweet of mine as a child, and the colours make easy inspiration for painting.

Five Feather Quills Monochrome Black Ink Painting

Image

This is my first monochrome black and white ink painting in a while. I love old feather quills. I’m a Jane Austen fan, and I always imagine her writing her beautiful novels using a feather quill with curly tendrils. I love victorian images and ideas, so it was a pleasure making this illustration.

Blue Ice Watercolour

This is the last abstract in colour I’ve done in this series, I’ve loved working in colour but now I’m tempted to do a few in monochrome, as orginally I had done a series about doors in black and white that kind of inspired these colour pieces. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Continuing the abstract mood lately, this one is in mint, leaf and other shades of green, in homage to a favorite cocktail of mine. I tried a peach mojito while out for dinner recently and it was delicious- but the original kind with fresh mint can’t be beat in the summer.

Red Leaf Watercolour Illustration

This leaf watercolor is in two of my favorite colours, Flame Red and Indian Yellow. I love to wear red for energy and confidence.  I like painting leaves on this scale (8.5 in by 12 in) because it gives them detail and importance, and for me painting, like life, is about the little things.
