Red and Blue London Plane Brooch

Another new London Plane leaf brooch. This one is red and gold with blue tips and touches of iridescent pink. Based on the shape of a leaf from the Brunswick Plane in Brunswick Square Gardens. If you are in London you can see this beautiful tree in Brunswick Square Gardens by Russell Square tube station. It spreads its arms wide and shelters Londoners eating their lunch under it’s huge boughs.

This leaf brooch is red with blue tips and swirls of gold running through it. There are tiny touches of iridescent pink too.

A Big Hare

I had fun with this one. :-) I wanted to do a big hare with thick juicy paint. I like this standing pose with the light coming from behind him and his shadow in front of him. He’s painted with thick acrylics using a knife and a brush on a 24×24 inch stretched canvas. I enjoyed it so much I’m tempted to do another large painting soon.

London Plane Leaf Brooch

There are many London Plane trees all over the city. Their leaves can grow to a huge size and there’s a big variation in the shapes and colours too. One tree, not far from me, has very dark leaves in Autumn, with dark reds and purples, almost black at the edges when they fall. This brooch is inspired by that tree. It has black edges turning to red and gold in the centre with touches of green and blue here and there.

That Look

A beautiful spotty bengal cat. He’s painted in watercolour with paint pens and some metallics too. After all, a bengal needs a touch of glitter in his coat. The photos don’t show it but some of the his fur has metallic copper watercolour in places and in certain light it gives a beautiful shimmer. He is painted on a sheet of 40x30cm Cornwall paper in watercolour and paint pens.



Fox Brooch

A beautiful red fox out for a stroll. She is red and orange with lots of gold through her coat. She has a pearly tail and muzzle and long black stockings with a touch of silver at the top. There are little hints of iridescent russet, blue and lilac in her coat.
