A tiger profile. I love this strong head, it makes you realise how large and powerful tigers are. It would be a tragedy if we drove them into extinction. She is painted in watercolour and inks on 20×14 inch Fabriano Artistico paper, which has a lovely texture.
A great tit painting. I’m thinking of calling it The Local Cafe. :-) Snowy weather but the birds come for their grub at the feeder and can do a bit of house shopping while they’re there, checking out the bird boxes for the spring season. :-)
This is an 8×8 inch acrylic painting on panel
I’ve been working on a small Puma painting. I’m thinking of some large paintings of big cats but wanted to start with something a bit smaller with a good excuse to play with lots of colour. So a glorious golden cougar with a blue green background seemed like a great place to start. She is a very colourful girl, a 10×10 inch acrylic painting on a panel. Now I just have to decide on what colour frame to get for her.
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.
I am not just making jewellery, I am doing a lot of painting too. This one is tiger out for a stroll. I love this head on view of him, you really see what a powerful cat he is as he strolls along the bank.
He is painted in watercolour and inks with a touch of thicker acrylic paint, on 20×14 inch Fabriano Artistico paper, which has a lovely texture. He comes in a 24×18 inch double mount.
My new resin piece is a hare by moonlight. He sits in the grass with a huge pearly moon behind him. I have some new metallic pigments and I wanted to use them in this piece. I like the way they look in his coat, the rusty colour in his body is gorgeous.
Oh those ears and whiskers! I had fun with this boy, he is painted with liquid paints and paint pens on 16×16 inch Fabriano paper. Or I should say scribbled with liquid paint and drip pens in hot colours, red, orange and yellows with teal and green whiskers. A really colorful character. :-)
A new starling painting, Splashy Starling. It was raining but he was full of the joys of spring, parading around in his mating plumage.Very fine he looked too, all those iridescent colours in his feathers.
Exciting! I’ve just finished my first watercolour painting on my new Two Rivers paper. It’s handmade artists rag paper, it’s a heavy weight and has a random surface texture and four deckle edges, love those deckle edges.
I love painting hares so what better subject to use on this gorgeous paper? This hare pricks up his ears and twitches those lovely whiskers, he’s keeping an eye out for trouble. The sun streams past and throws his soft lilac shadow in front of him. He is painted in watercolour and acrylic inks.
