Instagram Highlights – Springtime

Here’s the latest spring brights from my Instagram. This is one of my favourite times of the year as I love the colours that start to appear in nature and in Easter related marketing.

Here’s the Easter message I created firstly in watercolour and then developed digitally.

Loved ones moving inspired me to create a new home card using paper.

An evening sketch walk in historic Warwick led to a series of juxtaposed sketches which together became a scene.

I created a short Ripl video for my Facebook page including my favourite paper art. See more paperart at the link at the foot of the email.

Joining the #illustrateapril challenge prompted a number of art pieces illustrating, “What spring means to me”.┬áimage 351

I love tulips so they featured in each of the pieces, one was a painting, one a pattern as though the spring flowers are radiating, as the sun does in spring.

I worked with watercolour shapes to create a series of motivational illustrations using simple characters.

This is my favourite of the illustrations and hopefully this is representative of how my art and illustration practice rocks forwards.

Instagram Highlights

Time flies when you’re having fun! It’s been a while since I last posted but that means the highlights are sweeter.

For when we need to reach deep… and need to believe in ourself.

Paper cut seaside paradise. Tea and cake anyone?

I’m making a skirt in pretty bicycle fabric. I’ve been experimenting with sewn embellishments. Pretty sparkles and sequins.

Woohoo spring blooms popping up in my garden. ­čśÇ

A sunny break in Spain was colourful and inspiring. Here’s a juicy pic from Malaga market.

There’s something nostalgic about brightly painted bicycles and baskets. It’s a girl thing – summer days, wind in your hair, freedom of time and movement. Mmmm ­čśÄ

It’s winter, yet I’m sewing ice-creams and lollies. Bring on summer!

For more sunny posts see my Facebook and Instagram and see the posts here. Thanks for taking time out here, hope you’ve enjoyed it.

Ski Fit Illustrations 

After major knee injury my resolve ran thin after so many repetitive exercises. I needed new impetuous and accountability to push on with vigour.

As steps on my path back to skiing I created exercise boards to inspire me and illustrate the exercises that will help strengthen. I’m studying illustration at present with Bill Wright, from Central St Martins. 

Now I really have no excuse… I’ll schedule it in my calendar to try to get to it regularly. Maybe stating my intention here to do this 5 times a week will  spur me on…

Here are some posts that relate to this…
