Vlog – October 2014

Hi, I thought I’d make a Vlog as it is Vlogtober after all :)
I take you on a very condensed trip into London where we randomly meet a man carrying a bird of prey, and a first look at my robotic mop from Lidl!!
Enjoy!

Here is a photo of the man with his Harris Hawk

It was just 14 weeks old, reared by its mother and he was just introducing it to humans.
Once fully trained it will be used as a bird deterrent at air fields.

New painting – All that glitters

I made a new painting – All that glitters
I mainly wanted to try to paint a magpie, it’s a bit big and out of proportion but I still like it. I tried some hand lettering on this painting and feel I need to practice more..

Dylusions Spray Inks & FW Acrylic Ink

I started another lifebook lesson with this lovely abstract background made with Dylusions Spray Inks & FW Acrylic Ink. I just love the way the red acrylic ink spread through the Dylusions in such an amazing pattern.

Lifebook catch up

Hi all, I’ve been busy catching up with my Lifebook 2014 lessons as I’d fallen behind quite a bit, I’ve also signed up for 2 new online classes, Fabulous Faces by Tamara Laporte and Express Yourself by Jane Davenporte, which should keep me busy until Lifebook 2015 starts!! Hurray!

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen that last weekend I did an amazing cycle ride into Kent, it’s one of my favourite routes which takes in a number of local parks, my secret wild wood, and some beautiful rolling hills surrounded by lush fields.

Here are some of the Lifebook art lessons I have managed to complete recently

This lesson by Carrissa Paige involved collage elements and acrylic paint, it was called ‘An Artsy Abode;

New nymph painting – Melia

Hi all, I’ve finally managed to upload my nymph painting, she is Melia, a wood nymph who lives in a remote northern ash forest. She is quite surprised to see a hummingbird flying around and wonders about the far away tropical lands from which it came.

I guess that the if I had made the hummingbird smaller and moved it in a bit I could have fit the wings in, but I’ve never drawn or painted a hummingbird before so wanted to keep it as big as possible.
The painting was made using neocolor II water-soluble crayons, acrylic paint and painted paper cuts.
