Something different

Something different

Here are some favourites from some oil painting workshops I have been attending.  Quite an ecletic collection but have really enjoyed loosening up and learning more about colours.  Most are available to buy.  POA.              ...

Today I would like to thank a fellow networker for all the Portraits she has asked me to do over the years of Animal Magic Art, her first back in 2015! Of all her lovely Labradors and her friends and children’s dogs too. One of my favourites is the last one I did for...

Working at a distance

Working at a distance

Certainly a pet portrait is an easy present to arrange in these strange times due to being able to create at a distance working from photos.  An iPet is electronic so can be sent via email and prints can be posted or arranged ones self and a painting can also be...

Gift Vouchers, so it’s never too late!

I have recently had some lovely notelets and gift vouchers made by Ainslie Chivers  The Print Lady whose printing certainly has a personal touch.  One of my iPets leant itself really well to one of Ainslie's designs so I will be really pleased to be sending these out...

Here's the first painting I did of Impy in this new style.  A bit different as used paper and acrylic instead of oils on canvas.  Loved this too so had it framed and now in my lounge. This is the photo I used to work from and another of the painting in situ....

Spring is Finally Here!!

Spring is Finally Here!!

I'm so glad this winter is over!  I've never known such a wet winter and having a horse it certainly was challenging.  It was a workout trying to get the hay in the field twice a day with not only mud up to my ankles and further! But prevailing winds and then dealing...

Recently I did a demonstration of my iPad drawings to the Romsey Art Group.  Always a pleasure to demonstrate to fellow artists who quite often are not keen on digital art.  Its certainly very similar to watercolour and can be printed onto so many different surfaces...
