Annie's Vase

I have been developing my pastel sketches into oils. Annie had brought the roses along in her vase with the squiggly handle - fab!

More Blooms...

More flowers and more sketches ready to work up into finished paintings.
I am getting ready to open up my house on the Green Door Art Trail in early April, there is nothing like a deadline to get the creative process underway!

The New Studio

I have spent my first day in a new shared studio space working alongside my artist pal Annie as we start to create new work for our forthcoming exhibitions. I want to develop a series of semi-abstract florals working across different media. This is my initial sketch and a pastel drawing which I have worked on in photoshop looking for compositions to take into oils.
