Hello, I’m Janette. I draw, paint, and occasionally write and illustrate poems - mostly haiku. I work in: watercolour, ink pen, pencil, acrylic..and at times, with my fingertip on an iPad. From some of my art I create high quality, inkjet art prints; producing them in my home-studio, in beautiful Gippsland, Australia. Thankful† Hope you... Continue Reading →
I began this painting with a brown watersoluble “Neocolor” crayon, applied with a flourish (and without much of a plan) onto A4 cotton watercolour paper. Then added watercolour and gouache. I used a tiny bit of coloured pencil here and there. The paper texture was a little rougher than I usually like to use for... Continue Reading →
I drew this with a black inkpen and watersoluble graphite crayon on paper. With my iPad I took a snap of it, then sent it to my inkjet printer. I printed it (with the printer also set to black and white) onto “rough” A5 cotton watercolour paper. It was fun working/playing over it with watercolour... Continue Reading →
Firstly a quick flourish of my inkpen, then washes of watercolour and a touch of white gouache in the centre of the flower. A page from one of my homemade sketchbooks. A page is A6 (approx. 4” x 6”, 10cm x 15cm) in size.

I wasn’t sure where I was going with this - there’s photos of the beginnings below. Though... Continue Reading →

*I began this with inkpen, on A5 Cotton paper, then added watercolour and gouache. These are a few more works from recent months. I often draw faces, usually women, and have done so since childhood. Occasionally I’ve drawn portraits for people, but these days I prefer to mostly draw faces from memory (not of anyone... Continue Reading →
*Watercolour and pencil in my 13cm x 16cm Khadi cotton sketchbook. Hi, back from my annual blogging break. Over the past few months since my last post, I’ve finished, and nearly finished quite a lot of artwork/play. Just a few sketches here today; plan to do another post shortly. I’ve also continued to sharpen my... Continue Reading →
