It feels like I haven’t posted in years. I’ve been busy – not just with the day job, but I’ve also been attending weekly life drawing classes, which has been great fun. I go to a small studio, with seats for 10 artists, so there’s plenty of room for a good view and it’s suitably quiet and relaxed.
The life models are rotated but there are some regulars, so you can study the forms well over time. You can see some of my latest sketches below. I’m putting these up slowly on Artfinder, so if you like a piece, you can purchase it.
Here’s another picture up on Artfinder! This was created during the Patti Mollica colour course. Click to view more info.
I went for a walk with one of my bestfriends last week and we took some pictures of her sweet boy. It is so hard to shoot in the forest, I forget how difficult it is to manage the light. Here are some of my faves.
It must be the season for mushrooms – we saw lots of them and I took a few pictures. I’ll have to go back when the leaves have turned and started falling, it was still very green!
I recently had the privilege of photographing a good friend’s newborn – she is absolutely gorgeous and I wanted to try and create some traditional newborn shots with cuddly toys and soft blankets. I have shared some of my favourite photos in this gallery. Here is sweet Sophia:
I have also added a recent piece to Artfinder and the painting gallery. This was a lovely, whimsical painting of cherry blossom. I wanted to create a serene, soft atmosphere and it’s a relatively large canvas for me. This could be a real statement in the right spot!
Hello again! At the end of August I went to Scotland, to travel around the east coastal roads. I had a spectacular time and took tons of photos. I’m yet to post my DSLR images online, but I have uploaded some of my favourite iPhone photos.
I have some images from 2017 – 2018 that I have neglected to add here – so there some other updates in the galleries, like this glorious wild horse in the New Forest sunset.
I have added another painting for sale to the Artfinder shop – Purple Grapes. I’ll be adding more over the next few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled.
