Working on some new black and white abstracts for my etsy shop! I love working with black ink, it is one of my favourite materials because it is so versatile. There is something soothing about wondering what an abstract set of shapes like this could represent.
Bluebells watercolor, inspired by the bluebells found in the Botanic Gardens, Dublin
I’ve been playing around with the theme of couples a lot, as I’m coming up with an idea for a wedding present for some friends. I never knew lovebirds were related to parrots, but now I do, it makes sense…
We’re having a lovely heatwave in Ireland right now. Seems like sunflower weather.
An abstract painting of many of raindrops, in black, white and grey, painted in ink and drawn over in pen. Painted during a rare dry spell in Dublin, we’re having the only heatwave of the year right now!
This is an ACEO which is a new size for me to work in- 3.5 by 2.5 inches! The tiny size makes detail a challenge, but it’s always nice to try something new.
This little painting/drawing is inspired by Paul Auster’s City of Glass, and also a little by the New York skyline. Working with grids can really add something new and interesting to a drawing.
Just back from NYC, and this drawing was inspired by Spear Heads in the Natural History Museum- highly recommend a visit there, if you’re in the area!
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.
Another in my series of watercolour animals
