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.
A hare hopping through the fields is a sign that spring is on it’s way. This hare is painted in watercolour and paint pens on Saunders Waterford 16×12 inch paper. His whiskers are gold, lilac and teal.
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 flying hare coming in to land through a cloud of colour, twitching his teal and gold whiskers. He is painted on 16×12 inch Saunders Waterford paper using watercolour, a touch of ink and paint pens.
A new hare print available, One In The Eye, a pair of boxing hares leaping through the grass.
Another snow leopard, this time in water media with lots of messy splashing around and loads of colour. I love her profile and thought I’d add a splash of pink and gold vanishing out of the picture. I’m imagining an exotic bird beating a hasty retreat!
I’ve just about finished this new painting of a snow leopard Mum and her cub in profile. It’s a 12×12 inch oil on canvas board. The last snow leopard I painted had warm fur against a cold blue green backdrop so this time I wanted to reverse that and try cool grey/lilac/blue fur against a soft, warm background. Now they just need varnishing.
I saw a fox a while ago, sitting on the garden wall with the summer flowers around his paws. That’s what inspired this watercolour painting. he sat for quite a while enjoying the sunshine. It’s wonderful to see foxes in the city.
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.
