Here are my latest Instagram highlights
Art for the heart: Count your blessings. I digitally overlaid this lino print onto a bright bubbly surface that I created digitally from one of my images. The woman is looking out hopeful to meet her love, and the man looks ahead hoping, the third series of cuts brings them together.
I rarely use watercolours but do enjoy painting on holiday so captured a scene from our holiday in the Mediterranean. What’re lovely location for painting than a subbed overlooking the sea! I created an ink line drawing from memory then painted it.
I didn’t want to take my phone on the pedalo and to the jet skis so I drew the events from memory as a way of illustrating and captuirng these fun parts of our trip.An unexpected art opportunity was the sculpture park in the resort of Ayia Napa. Acres of wonderful statues. Here are my favourites.
This was the only sculpture with colour but it was just my colours. I framed the shot for the wings to be cradling the moon as the early evening came.
I had a play with hand written lettering taking it digital as practice for the Illustration course I am studying. I overlaid the hand lettering in inverted colours over a watercolour sample to illustration three words, Freedom, Flow and Fun.
As exercises for the illustration course I have been working on illustration written articles. The first was a study that found that young children learn language more from speaking than writing practice.
This article is about baking, I chose a Bake Love – as in Bake Love not war angle inspired by The Great British Bake Off
