My usual style is to use as many colours as possible, but I think this limited pastel colour range is kind of cute ?
A loose representation of Australian flora .
Sketchin’ & inkin’ . I used daiso ink for the background on the right. I have to say it’s amazing ink and it’s only $2.80 for a whole bottle 😮
Summer vibes on the 2nd day of winter !
The month that was – There were countless sunny autumn days that were enjoyed, all the plants in the garden were happy to be soaking up the warmth as well ( just look at those delicious oranges ! ). I completed my 100 day painting challenge, there were lots of animals in top hats . Giant ant ornaments and bobbly birds made a new home in the garden. In true Agatha Christie style, Crooked house kept me guessing right till the end with who the killer was & cozy warm winter socks were found at Daiso.
I bought this lovely new sketchbook from miniso and started it by sketching this fun little
scene. I’m not used to drawing entire scenes, usually just focus on one particular object
or animal. Though I think I’m going to do more sketches like this. It’s a great way to brainstorm new ideas and just draw whatever comes to mind.
This is gardener Joe. He likes to wear dungarees and big floppy hats.
He likes to grow his own vegetables & look after lots of wonderful plants and flowers.
I like to paint imaginary houses. As I’m painting I’m always wondering who would live there. I imagine a lovely giraffe living here, he would like to wear colourful jumpers and make delicious casseroles.
There is a brand new zine in my etsy shop this week.
It is filled with 10 lovely illustrations .
The original illustrations were painted with bright watercolours.
I hope that this zine will inspire readers to go outside and explore the
wonders of nature.
I’ll be wrapping these up with some snail mail letters.
