Before going to work in the studio I did a warm up sketch of furniture in the living room. The sketch was done with a chunky permanent ink pen and pencil for additional shading. The ink doesn’t allow for errors, sometimes that is the fun of using it.
This painting was done outside in the sun. The reason for the cup and saucer being a favourite is that it has a pattern of a sleeping lizard on the saucer. Anyone drinking coffee from it gets a surprise.
Today I was looking out the window and noticed how nice the snowdrops looked behind the sleeping cat ornament. I sat outside and did this study with the birds chirping in the background. It was a lovely spring day, the gardening will have to wait!
This little rabbit is a charity shop find that I rescued. I enjoyed painting this on a red shiny tray.
During this painting I was wondering what to do with the lemons afterwards. Finished the painting today and ended up making a lemon drizzle cake.
It has been interesting finding different subjects for the days I am able to do a small painting for this blog. I liked the personalities these little people seem to have. They seemed to be conversing with each other!
Set up a little still life with objects from around the house. I really like the shape of the modern Habitat tea pot and the tea towel is a favourite.
At the weekend I bought this vase from the St Andrews pottery shop and it inspired this painting.
