I started working on a new thing..

I was inspired by cave paintings and fantasy elven murals to start this painting of an antelope lady.

New painting – Mongolian Warrior Queen

I’ve finally finished my Mongolian warrior queen painting, it was inspired by an archival image of a queen in full regalia and I imagined that she would get her powers from swirling antler-like balls in her hair. :) I think I have been playing too many video games..
I have added a speed painting video below the photos.

Calendar art journal project – October

Hi all :) It’s that time again, I recently completed the October calendar art journal page, where I took an old calendar and painted on top of it :)
This months theme is Halloween and gothic. I sketched the gothic window and coloured it with pencils and water-soluble crayons before adding paper cuts :)
There is a step by step youtube video below, after the pictures.

Work in progress – Mongolian warrior queen

I managed to add a bit more detail to my Mongolian warrior queen painting.
It’s been quite interesting painting the drapery and decorations, the dress is supposed to be green silk..

Cornwall trip – September 2015

I spent a lovely 5 days in Carbis Bay, Cornwall, UK the weather was unusually hot and sunny for late September which was just as well as I wanted to spend as much time as possible walking around the coast, arting on the balcony, watching shooting stars over the ocean and rediscovering some old haunts :)

I had a lovely apartment with 2 balconies (I have a thing for balconies!) which overlooked the bay towards St Ives, and gave spectacular views of the north coast and Atlantic.
Here are a few photos, plus a mini travel video below :)DSC_5379 small

Mongolian warrior queen

Hi all, I hope you are good and enjoying the last shreds of summer. I spent last week in sunny Cornwall! it was very mild and summery in the south west of England and I had a fantastic time going on coastal walks, watching shooting stars over the ocean and painting on the balcony. :)
I started this painting of a Mongolian warrior queen.
