Random Paintings and T-Shirt










 I tried to copy from photographs for the deer above and the two paintings below but was disappointed with how they turned out. Stick to my usual style or practice more?





My daughter asked if I could decorate 3 t-shirts with vintage 79 as she and two friends were celebrating 40th birthdays. I cut the numbers and letters out of heat transfer vinyl on my digital cutting machine. They were then ironed onto the t-shirts.
I'll not be posting for a couple of weeks or so but I'll be back.

Birds Watercolour and Tablet Patterns

Ink drawing and watercolour paints in an A3 sketchbook [which is not great for watercolours]




This is a doodle I did on my tablet, the pink background I added after uploading to the computer.
Then arranged to give a repeating pattern.


I selected an area of the same pattern and cropped.

And the repeat version

I'm playing along with Paint Party Friday

Logs, Stars, Nests and Roses







I've been filling up some old part used sketch books with practice drawings using the book '20 Ways to Draw a Tree and 44 Other Nifty Things from Nature' by Eloise Renouf for ideas

Feathery Friends

Another new sketchbook, A3 size. 
It's not very good paper for watercolour paint that is why the sky is so messy [but I quite like the messy look of it.]
I started with an ink drawing.

I first used this book in May 2014 on one page. 
Then I didn't use it until April 2015 and this is what I did.
I like the work of Charlie Harper and these were my attempts at copying.

As you can see I was using decorative patterns on birds then too.

I'm linking with Paint Party Friday and I've just seen that my work from last Friday is featured there.
