It's a good hair day!..........


Hey there!

Welcome to another of my paintings!

Now, this one has so much character it made me smile as I painted it!

I personally love Alpacas and I don't think I'm alone - this one I painted whilst down in Cornwall last month and I've called it " It's a Good Hair Day!".

I had a lot to take in while painting this one and it was quite complex to try and capture the character of this chappie but I think I got it!!!

Painted in my usual watercolours with pastel pencil and posca pens.

He's quite a gem in my collection.

Mid month reminder for We Love Chocolate Baroque " Christmas"


Hi there!

Here I am with my mid month reminder for the 

We Love Chocolate Baroque Challenge

Our theme this month is "Christmas".

Here I have used two of Chocolate Baroque's stamp sets on this card -

A Tomte Christmas and Trees a Crowd

I started by stamping my little gnomes and covering them with a mask that I made.  Then I worked on the distress ink background and added the trees using Versafine Claire ink pads.  After removing the mask the little gnomes were coloured in using my Koi brush markers.  To finish I added some white enamel accents for some snowflakes.

This is quite a rare make for me as you can see a white border has been left AND IT HASN'T GOT A SINGLE FINGER PRINT ON IT!!!!!! Wowsers, I must have been having a good day!!!!

Do pop over to see us at We Love Chocolate Baroque!

Sharing Pink Ink Designs Nip and Duck and Twinkle Toes.........


Hi there!

I'm sharing a couple more of my samples for Pink Ink Designs today.

The first one is using Pink Ink's Nip and Duck stamp set - unusually I have coloured this in on craft card using my polychromos - something I rarely do and the second sample is using the Twinkle Toes stamp set.  This sample has a large amount of gold shimmer paint on it but it was impossible to catch is shimmering on a photo!

Hope you like them,

At Sun Up.....


Hey there! How are you all doing?

I am sharing another of my paintings today and this one I have called "At Sun Up".

As usual, not your usual coloured bunny but I thought that the lovely colours shining on this little ones coat looked like the lovely early morning sunshine.

Painted from a royalty free image in watercolours and pastel pencils.

This was a joy to paint and I love being experimental with the different tones.

Hope you like it,

Thanks for stopping by,
