*These are both in acrylic: the top is on a 8” x 10” canvas, and the bottom is 4” x 6” canvas.  For a few months now I’ve continued to revisit painting with acrylics - with many a muddy mess along the way - and I’m still mainly pursuing landscapes in a tonalist style. I’m at... Continue Reading →

*Watercolour, green and brown pigment inkpen, and a little white gouache. A page from my A5 Winsor&Newton sketchbook, which has 300gsm 100% cotton paper - lovely paper! Although it doesn’t say on the packaging that it’s “cold pressed” paper, I gather it is by it’s light texture. It works quite well with coloured pencil and graphite... Continue Reading →

A closer view of a drawing I shared in my last post. I drew it with the lovely, inky, “Zen Brush 3” media. As a mum of four boys - young men now - this is often a favourite subject matter.  I make small A6 proof prints of some of my iPad art (and sometimes... Continue Reading →
