Calendar Art Journal Project – August

I was about to throw away a wall calendar when I thought, hmm this would make a really good art journal once I’ve added gesso to the pages.
So here is the first page of my calendar art journal project and time-lapse video.
Why not play along too, with an old calendar of your own :)

New – Fairy Fawn Painting

I finally finished my cute little fairy fawn painting, I couldn’t decided whether it was male or female so decided to make it both. I used lots of different products but mainly Golden fluid acrylics, Neocolor water soluble crayon, system 3 acrylic, FW Acryclic ink, pastel pencils etc etc.
I also made a fast forward video of myself painting it below.

Catch-up time! :)

Hi, it’s been a while since I’ve posted photos and a catch-up!
The first photo (clockwise from the top left) is one from my morning walks, I walk from Charing Cross Station on The Strand to Gray’s Inn Road most mornings and/or evenings and try to snap a few details on my iPhone along the way.
It’s a beautiful walk with loads of historic buildings and artefacts scattered amongst various back streets and squares.
The magnificent arched doorway with emblems above it was in Chancery Lane, one of the oldest parts of London, originally created by the Knights Templar it is now more associated with the legal profession.

I visited Hastings over the weekend and cycled from there to Pevensey Bay and back, around 25 miles along the coast and through pretty fields.
Hastings was lovely! it had real charm and seemed to be filled with people dressed up as pirates!
I snapped a the very beautiful building that was once a music hall whilst cycling along the promenade.
The beach shot was taken looking down the coast past St Leonards to Hastings on what turned out to a beautiful sunny day. Both areas are associated with the invasion of William the Conqueror in 1066 but are now seaside holiday areas.
I’m thinking of going back again soon to investigate further and take more photos with my DSLR.

I snapped the angel statue whilst walking past a pub near Grays Inn Gardens, I thought it was very beautiful.

Other than that I have been painting away, planning some paper crafting makes, reading the Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare (Love it!) and playing a bit of Saints Row IV.

I should have a new painting fast forward to be published soon, of a little fairy fawn.
Here is a work in progress :)

work in progress

bye for now
