Getting There!

I've been working steadily over the past few weeks trying to get all my illustrations and artwork in order. I've been wanting to open an etsy shop for quite a while but I want to do it right so I'm getting everything prepared before I start offering anything for sale. 

I received my first batch of prints the other day and they've come out great. I did want to do all the printing myself at home, but my printer is not really up for that so until I can afford a fancier one, I'm ordering small batches for the time being just to see how things go.

I'll be sharing more pictures over the coming days of my progress and some previews of some of my work.

The above illustration was sketched in ink and then coloured digitally. Took me an absolute age to decide on the colour scheme for the balloons! 

Summer has arrived!

We've had a beautiful couple of days which look to continue into the next week! I'm burnt to a crisp, which must happen at least once a year for prosperity. We had a lovely family walk along the cliffs and managed to take these pretty shots. :)

St Basil

My latest painting is now complete. I'm so pleased with how this turned out. It's of St Basil's Cathedral in Russia. Such a beautifully colourful building, which is an absolute dream for me because I get to break out all the bright colours.


You know, sometimes it's really difficult deciding what colour to use on a sketch. It's really hard to get over the hump of worrying that I'll use the wrong colour.

I guess I need to learn to embrace mistakes and remember that not everything has to be perfect. I'm sure I'll get there one day!

Hi, by the way! This blog is still very new and I'm still working on it's design but I just thought I'd post a little something to get things going. I will be sharing my art work as well as lots of other pretty things that inspire and awe so I hope you'll stick with me!
