On Bondi Beach it pissed it down while I was there, except for my last morning when I had an hour of gorgeous sunshine to wander down to the beach and feel guilty that I wasn’t doing yoga like everyone else who was there at 7am. Then I got stuck in the clouds in theContinue reading “Australia Part 1:Bondi Beach and the Blue Mountains”
So as to not waste the gorgeous weather here in Brussels at the moment I’ve sketched the view from the other terrace at the front of the house..
En-route to Australia I stopped off in Singapore for a long weekend. Happily it coincided with my friend Katys birthday (who I was staying with) and she’d managed to wangle tickets to the marina bay sands infinity pool on the 57th floor which was amazing! Also obviously it was very nice to see her againContinue reading “Singapore La!”
Just before I went on my travels to Australia, I went along to Strasbourg with my boyfriend as he had to go there for his work with the EU. It’s a gem of a city(if you go make sure you walk up to the top of the cathedral – it’s knackering getting up the twistyContinue reading “Strasbourg Eurocrating”
My friend Charis came to stay at the weekend, so I took her to the Folon Foundation in Chateau de la Hupe, which is just outside of Brussels. I love Folons work, and have spent the morning painstakingly trying to recreate his effortless brushstrokes with somewhat limited success..
For my 30th birthday I went to Paris with my boyfriend. It was the first time i’ve been to Paris since I was on a school history trip at the age of 15 upon which I was sure I had seen the Notre Damme, but it turns out it’s actually a lot bigger than theContinue reading “Gay Paree”
I’ve decided to ease my way back into my artathon by copying a few paintings from other artists. A painting by Maurice Gollota called ‘Colourful Life’ caught my eye while I was in Australia watching the Block, (a home renovation show that is MASSIVE out there) and so I tried to copy that one, and I’ve doneContinue reading “A day making copies… and one original Skull”
I’ve just survived a double wedding weekend whammy (as in one friend got married the weekend before last, and another got married last weekend- both were absolutely gorgeous ceremonies in Oxford and Goudhurst, Kent respectively), I’ve done a wedding map for a friends wedding invitations (big event happens later in June), a hen do cartoonContinue reading “Wedding art..”
Yesterday was beautiful here in Brussels so I sat out on the terrace and tried to draw the view. I really need to get another scanner because photographing my postcards with my iphone isn’t working terribly well (yes I am going to blame my tools and not my rather dubious water colour skills!) , butContinue reading “View from the terrace in Brussels”
