Inky giraffe

Long long time without posting to this blog! Hoping to get back into it a bit more regularly. To start, here's an inky giraffe - Lamy Safari pen with Platinum carbon black ink, in a Stillman & Birn Epsilon sketchbook.

St Neots plein air

I spent a pleasant couple of hours last weekend at Riverside park in St Neots. I don't often do landscapey type things, especially not plein air, but I really enjoyed the sunshine and fresh air, and I got to visit a place I'd not been to before (despite it only being a few miles from where I live, tut tut!)

Smart starling

Here's a watercolour I've just finished, inspired by a European Starling that sits in a tree outside my window, singing a good version of a car alarm...

The remains of tulips

A guest staying with us a couple of weeks back very kindly gave me some tulips, which were gorgeous while they were flowering. Once they were past their best they were all the more interesting to draw!

The fen owl

It's been a while, but at last I've made a new reduction linocut print, based on the short-eared owls at Burwell Fen...

A bit rough and ready I feel, think I need to get back into some regular printmaking!
