My youngest daughter on her swing. We went to see the David Hockney exhibition in Brussels together so I took some inspiration from his Normandy landscapes and the way he does his brushstrokes (well i-pad strokes?!) for this watercolour.
Ah, family holidays, always so relaxing! This photo pretty much summed up the holiday, grey skies but beautiful autumn colours in the valley, and two very uncooperative children! I did another version of the painting after speaking to my art teacher and listening to his advice on how to create depth with watercolours:
Last instalment of wedding table postcards for my brother and his fiancée. Painting them has made me really want to go to Wales, and I can’t wait for the wedding!
My brother is getting married in May and he and his finacee have asked me to do some postcards of their favourite places for the different wedding tables. These are the ones I’ve done so far (SPOILER ALERT FOR THOSE WHO WILL BE AT THE WEDDING)
Tigerlilly, Hector and Willow as a kitten.
I love my cats dearly and have an instagram account dedicated to them, which I refuse to apologise for (follow me on @sharkimedis). After doing the Quentin Blake copies yesterday I’ve tried to use his style(ish) to paint Shadow and Archimedis. And this is a cartoon of life with a cat…
My boyfriends Aunt has a lovely painting of origami birds (I don’t know who painted it unfortunately) which inspired this series of watercolours..
My friends cat Willow is a gorgeous beast, and a couple of months ago she requested I paint her, which I have finally managed to get round to doing! The second one didn’t work so well, but I quite like the first.
