Goldfinch and Robin Commission

I’ve recently had a couple of watercolour commissions. One was a gift, the Robin, and then the lady liked it so much that she requested a matching goldfinch.

I thought, “oh I really must post before July ends” only to see a Hello August! post on my Instagram feed.

Pogy

pen, Step-by-Step, watercolour

I’ve had a couple of days of not posting since Inktober, but I’ve continued to draw and paint in the meantime.

Here’s something I worked on a couple of weeks ago.


This is Pogy. He’s a Neardie rescue (meaning he’s sort of like a bearded collie, maybe?) Pogy is super friendly and loves cuddles. He once jumped out a secon d story window and now has a metal part in his leg, but he’s made a full recovery. My dad calls him Seargant Major Pogy because he’s got such a straight back like a meerkat.

He posed beaitfully for me to do a water colour base, and later I added some detail in pen over the top.

Ideally I’d be able to complete the whole study with him as my model, or at  least a detailed photo, but that’s ok, it was useful practice. Next time I’d like to have another go with different coloured pens.

I hope you’re all enjoying the changing season and chilly air!

Inktober 2017 – Day 31: Mask

Inktober is complete!

Since I’ve (loosely) completed a nature themed inktober, I thought for “mask” we’d go with a green man vibe. It’d be fun to redo this with lots of detail including flowers, moths, and feathers. Maybe I’ll paint my own seasonal green man masks one day.

I’ve really enjoyed inktober and seeing everyone’s sketches. It’s motivated me to sketch and paint and helped me see where the time in the day is available for me to create. I’m gonna really try to keep the momentum and continue to produce more and more work. 

Happy Halloween everyone!

Inktober 2017 – Day 30: Found

inktober, pen

Slightly rushed one this morning but I really wanted to get it up and posted because I’ll be home late. 

Based on real-life events of what happens when we can’t find something in our house. Always worth checking the garden to see if Molly had stolen it and put it in one of her holes. 

I can’t beleive Inktober is almost over. I haven’t found it as difficult as I thought I would, it’s definitely inspired me to paint and create more. The more inspired I feel though, the less time I want to spend on my Inktober drawings. I’ve got lots of other content to share on here though which is great! When I feel like I have something to show it definitely keeps me motivated to work more. 

Anyway, here’s some photos from the trian.
