New Year Adventures

Chatty

Hi all,

In this post I mentioned that I’d been on a recent ADVENTURE (read: princess holiday) with my boyfriend and his family.

We went to Hong Kong (and flew on Christmas Day, no less) and we were there for New Years Eve.

Then we flew to Sydney for a wedding. It was BEAUTIFUL and we got so lucky with the weather! Warm but still cool enough to do some serious touristing.

Our final stop was in Bangkok, this time just my boyfriend and myself. We were only there for a couple of days but it was a great taster. You’ll notice that we have a real thing about visiting Aquariums. The one in Sydney had two Dugongs, Pig and Wuru!

The whole trip was just the best thing ever. I always love travelling, but I’ve never seen much outside of Europe. Each year I’ve been trying to visit new places, especially in terms of different climates. Who knows what the rest of this year will bring?

Has anyone else visited anywhere exciting? I’d love to hear all about it!

Josh and Bike #1

Acrylic, Painting, Step-by-Step

I’ve started another painting to get a bit of practise in. This is Josh in front of our bike and cabin (and my messy set up).

He is such a fluff bear so a great chance to practise painting fur. The canvas is only A4 so it’s a nice size to fill a space quickly (which, at least to begin with, I find motivating).

I’ve realised I’m quite an expressive painter. Lots of mark making rather than realistic strokes. Obviously this painting is still in it’s infancy, but when I’ve worked a bit more on it I’ll try to challenge myself to fine-tune it a little bit.

The weather this weekend was relatively warm and bright. There’s the promise of painting outside in the air!

Happy Monday all ❤
