Where do I begin, well I guess with my paintings - several years ago I was inspired whilst watching Watercolour Challenge on TV to have a go at painting, something I hadn't really done since I left school. The medium suited me well, although unforgiving if you make a mistake, it dries quickly and there's little smell - ideal for me as my son was small at the time and inquisitive little fingers would appear from nowhere - can you imagine the mess if I'd been using oil paints!!!!
Here's one of my first paintings - some of you might recognise him:
|Portrait - Ronan Keating|
I was fortunate enough to be asked to undertake numerous commissions, these are definitely my favourite ones:
|Portrait - Girl in pink|
|Portrait - Couple outdoors|
I found that chalk ink worked really well to shade the dies and give them depth, the only drawback being that I constantly had inky fingers!!
And right now..............................Copics, stamps and more......................but that will have to wait until the next post!
You should have an art gallery Jane! These are so unbelievably gorgeous, all of them! WOW!
Beautiful work! You have an enormous amount of talent.
