Just One more.


I just thought I would fit in one more short post before the end of 2015.
Sunday Best.
Coloured Pencil on Paper.
I am really getting to love using my coloured pencils.
I hadn't used coloured pencils since I was a child and I picked them up again
a few months ago.
At first I found them a bit of a challenge after working with acrylic paint.
But, with practice, I am starting to get better results.
See you in 2016

New Pastels

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas. 
I have been trying out my new portrait set of Sennelier Oil Pastels.
I started with a quick watercolour background and used a Stabilo All Pencil and
 oil pastel for the figure.
  Sending Best Wishes to you for 2016.

More Festive Fun and WOYWW on a Tuesday.

Hi everybody
I hope you are enjoying the run up to Christmas and all is going to plan.
This will be my last post before Christmas so I want to share another festive pencil drawing.
Mummy's Little Angel

For those of you who are visiting for WOYWW and missed my first one you can see it
Just before I go I wanted to share this whimsical card I received form one of my favourite
 blogging friends Robin over at Pink House Studio.
It features one of Robin's own little characters. In fact it was this card that inspired me to
 create 'Mummy's little Angel.'
Thanks Robin for the great card and for the inspiration.
I want to thank all my visitors and those of you who have been kind enough to leave your comments.
 They mean a lot.

Festive Fun

It's official.
 I am now fully in Christmas mode.
 I very rarely do festive themed artwork.
 But this little cutie just appeared in my thoughts and I just had to let her out.
Waiting for Christmas.

I love her to bits. Hope you do too.

Girl in a Wooly Jumper.

In my last post I shared a WIP coloured pencil drawing.
Here it is now after a little more work.
Girl in a Woolly Jumper
This is how she looked in my last post.
I thought I would also show a page from my handmade coloured pencil sketchbook that I did a little while ago.

Thank you to all who have visited here recently and for all your lovely comments I really do appreciate them.

Another quick post today for WOYWW.

I decided to completely sort out my art room. My desk and furniture have all been pulled out and sitting in the middle of the room and I have a feeling that it probably won't get sorted till after Christmas.

Until it does anything I do will have to be done on my knee so it's a good excuse for practicing my coloured pencil drawing. Here is the latest little sketch but it still needs some work.

Hope you like her so far.
