Watercolour and ink is such a fun medium to work with; I love the sketchiness and immediacy of the shapes and colours, and I like the contrasty inky black lines. I have a soft spot for illustrative styles and many of my favourite artists started as cartoonists.
I’ve been working on a commission for a friend to commemmorate his wife’s beloved horse, and we thought this style would work best to capture the spirit of Jill and Alf together.
Here are a couple of images of the work in progress and the finished piece, titled “The Everlasting Sunset”.
It’s been a busy summer with lots of shows. It’s been exciting showing all the new paintings I’ve been working on, and it’s been really great getting feedback.
I’ll be at the Wallop Parish Hall on October 8-9th with the Wallop Artists. Not long now, pop it in your diary!
When I get a chance over the next few days, I’ll be adding some pieces to the shop that didn’t go during the recent exhibitions. You can still see the pieces that sold in the gallery, so do have a look there too if you’re just browsing! 🙂
