New painting – Sweet Girl and Pigeon

Hello, long time, I’ve finally finished this whimsical girl painting with her pet bird which I am calling an ‘Adidas Pigeon’ because of the 3 stripes on the wing. It was inspired by a historical illustration which I’ve linked below :) I’ve also made a fully voiced ‘watch be paint’ video also linked below.
I hope you enjoy it! :)

New Painting – Flowers of Gratitude

I finished another Life Book 2017 painting yay!!!
This one is called flowers of gratitude and I do have a lot to be grateful for right now.
I started a new job which I absolutely adore and am so happy to have moved on from the company I’ve worked for for what seems like most of my life… ALL CHANGE IS GOOD!!

This painting took me out of my comfort zone somewhat as we were asked to paint a semi realistic yet whimsical portrait in watercolours.. a medium I have had little practice with.
But I love the bright colours of the flowers and the intriguing expressions on the lady’s faces.
I hope you like it too :)

Crystal heart life book 2017 lesson

This is the actual crystal heart life book lesson that I deviated from quite a bit in the previous picture.
Its amazing how the same lesson can be interpreted so differently

New painting ‘Let the Light in’

This was inspired by a Life Book 2017 lesson that I shall be starting soon.
I wanted to visualised a dark crystalised heart that recieves pulses of light to make it beat again. :)
I listened to Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten by Arvo Pärt whilst making it as the bell chimes reflected the pulses of light awakening the dark heart.. I linked a youtube copy of the music below the photo of my painting
