I just want to say, sorry for not posting in a little while! This was based on a photo I saw on the Wildfox blog (I keep looking on there alot for inspiration - it's awesome). It was Leighton M dressed in the Marchesa lace jumpsuit, I have no idea what season this was from, but it's lovely anyway.
Hope you are all well.

Hello all. Today I did this really small sketch of Frida G just using watercolour and pen. I actually find it really hard to try and draw her in particular, and I really don't know why. I think she's got a really interesting look - definately one of my favourite models at the moment.

Hello all! I'm sorry I've not posted much for the last few days - but I should be back in the swing of things now. I entered a piece in the Lloyds TSB 'Art of Nurture' competition, I don't think I'm allowed to post it on here, but I'll let you know if I get through.
The two pictures today are basically mini concept sketches for a much bigger piece I'll be working on. It's going to be a watercolour of Bob Dylan on possibly A2 paper. I'm thinking I will use some ink and pen too. Hope you are all well.

So here are my choices this time...

This was based on a photo of Jodie Kidd that I saw on the Wildfox blog. I just loved everything about it, and thought it would make a cool drawing. Also if you havn't checked out the Wildfox blog, its so awesome - you definately should!
Hope you are all having a good day.

Hope you are all great today. I just thought I would post this little painting I did the other day - It's a little different because I did this on a piece of card. It was actually pretty fun to work on a darker surface and get to add more highlights etc.
Hope you guys like it!

This is the canvas I have been working on for Landi this week. It's a picture of her sister and I actually think its pretty cute! It's been a little different working on canvas again, after getting so used to paper. I've used a mixture of acrylic and watercolour for this.
Hope you guys like it :)

This is a little something I did for Madison the other day. Just a really simple watercolour and pen painting. I'm going to be working on a new commission today, which will be on canvas so that will be abit of a change of pace for me.
Hope you guys are doing okay :)

This is a special commission I have been working on for the past few days. It is for Heather from Heather Retro, and she got in touch with me to ask me to create a painting for her Mum's birthday. So, this is what we managed to come up with together.
I have included my original concept sketch (just incase anyones interested in how I start my work - probably not though!).
It was a really fun project for me, and Heather was great to work with! I am so hoping that her Mum will like the painting.
