Welcome to my blog!
In my dad’s words, I am chuffed to have you visit, so thank you 🙂
Travel sketchbook – under the shade tree, South of France
The millhouse was in a big block of land right on the river bank. Lots of trees around to lounge under, including this one. Obviously I had to draw it.
Drawing Michele’s French vegies in colour pencil and mixed media
I have never seen so many different types of tomatoes in one place – thanks to my sister’s love of markets. I struggled to draw as fast as they were eaten!
Sketching the delicacies under the trees
The lusciousness of French delicacies was a real highlight of my trip. My sister Michele put out an amazing spread of food every day – so I drew it ..
Drawing flowers for my mum
Trundling across the French countryside on a fast train, doodling flowers for my mum
Off to France with my travel sketchbook
An unexpected trip to France – not something that happens every day! Preparing for the trip is half the fun, of course, so first stop was a new sketchbook ..
Holding my baby safe – a pencil drawing
Pencil drawing of my baby daughter at 6 weeks old. I can still remember how incredibly soft her skin was, and how she snuggled in to me.
Beth’s art group – a bunch of onions in charcoal
A still life drawn with charcoal for the first time in many years, thanks to joining Beth’s art group
Tulips and windmills – acrylic painting
My attempt at Impressionism. I spent a few hours having great fun splotting paint around to recreate these tulip fields in Holland from my childhood.
I finally filled a sketchbook!
It’s true – for the first time in my life EVER … I have actually filled an entire sketchbook! Not just with sketches, but with all sorts of things …
Sketching mum’s garden at Queenscliff
Watercolour of my mum’s luscious garden in Queenscliff. Brilliant colours, everywhere you look. It’s the perfect place to relax.
