Dragon with Sheep

Altered photo. 
The sheep were seen at the Rising Sun Country Park, Newcastle.
I saw the dragon holding a sign in Lucerne, Switzerland and borrowed it to keep the sheep company..

Snail House and Postcards

All digitally created. 
The snail and patterns on the postcards were created on my android tablet.
The postcards were put together on the computer. The butterflies are from the vintage Naturalist Library book.
I'm joining in with Paint Party Friday, see here for more details.

Development of a sketchbook page

I started out with lines and blocks of colour

I drew circles in some of the boxes but didn't wait for the paint to dry, so it ran.

I used various pens to draw patterns on top, they don't show up very well.
I liked the page after I'd filled in the squares before adding the circles, but after that it just went downhill. You can't win them all.

Breaking in a Sketchbook

The first page of a sketchbook that I started earlier this year. This is quite a large book, about A3 size.
I used watercolours for this and just made it up as I went along.

A Day at the Beach and Tile Pattern

The photograph was taken in Cannes. I used my tablet to paint the figure.

I painted four square patterns on my tablet using the same colours on each then transferred them to my computer and joined them together to make one repeating pattern. It didn't look that great with the colours I first used but I changed them and I think it has made all the difference.

Animals of the Ocean and Animals of the Land

I revamped an old drawing from one of my sketchbooks for the next Spoonflower challenge.

I started the design below for the last Spoonflower contest, Animals of the land but I didn't finish it time.
Both are late for Paint Party Friday !
