Here's what I've been fiddling away at - a watercolour portrait of my fab little nephew James...

Quarter sheet, watercolour, from my own ref photo.

And the great news is - James now has a little sister, Autumn! I'm an auntie again!

Play Me, I'm Yours

Was in Cambridge yesterday, sitting on the wall in front of Kings College with a cup of coffee. Oddly, there was a piano chained to the railings with a poster saying 'Play Me, I'm Yours' fixed to it... A student walked past, turned round and doubled back, put her bag down and started playing...

Honestly, everyone who walked past had a smile on their face! Great idea. Back home, I did some research and found out what was going on...

Big Cat Nap

Hello! Here's another ink and watercolour, this time based on a photo I took of a gorgeous Amur leopard at Twycross Zoo.

 Ink and watercolour, 5" by 7"

What a beautiful big cat, it's so very sad that they are under such pressure in the wild. This one was looking very relaxed, having a major cat nap...

Fancy that

Hello! Here's another watercolour and ink sketch based on a photo I took at the agricultural show last weekend - this time a fancy pigeon (of which there were many on show!)

5 by 7", watercolour and ink.

I started this one by loosely painting in the general shape of the bird in watercolour, then added the inking afterwards, and finally dropped in more colour where I felt it was needed.
