Watercolour artwork thanks
Oils on canvass. This is Charlie. He's the parrot owned by the supermarket where my husband used to work. The owner of the shop brought him in to keep him from getting bored and pulling his feathers out. He has a large cage at the entrance which he often escapes from, and can be found hopping from trolley to trolley on the handles, to amuse himself. He's usually found by a staff member who brings him back. A real character lol
I live in the countryside and often pick bits up from the road when I'm out walking. I found these one time so brought them home to sketch . Thanks for looking.
Coloured pencil drawing of Victorian ladies. Thanks for looking
My tribute to my good friend who died earlier this year. Another white pastel on black paper. Not my favourite media but I love the effect of it. I need to practice more as I can't get my head around working on negative lol, erasing to get shadows and filling in to get highlights etc. I used a chunky white stick and a white pastel pencil but detail still eludes me lol. It's a technique I need to refine. It's the second picture of a dead person I've put on, apart from humph, so I'm a cheery little soul aren't I lol? Thanks for looking
Coloured pencil sketch done while probably thinking about my holidays lol. Thanks
Plein air watercolour of arisaig on the west coast of Scotland. We holidayed there a few times. It's a very beautiful part of the world.
Illustration style retro watercolour doodle, entirely from imagination. Hence the figures have no basis in reality"life drawing", they are just my own imaginative style. "Real people"look very different. This is my stylised interpretation. Thanks for looking.
Very sad pencil drawing of a young friend who lost her life aged 37, in a freak car accident in 2017.She left 2 young sons and a husband to raise them alone. I gave him this picture as a gift, a tribute to a lovely lady who is no more....
White pastel on black paper.
Coloured pencils used to create a Victorian scene. This is my other style of artwork. Previous posts are based on reality, but I do a lot of little illustration style drawings from my imagination.Thanks for looking.
Graphite drawing of Ruth Ellis. She was the last woman in Britain to be hanged, in the 1950s. British justice was no where near as sophisticated then, as it is now. I am convinced that the overwhelming mitigating circumstances would have saved her life. Her confession was never examined or questioned. Today she would have received a manslaughter charge at most. Such a tragedy.
Graphite drawing of an elephant
Watercolour landscape painted on canvas
Mixed media cat picture.
Watercolour still life of the 1930 art Deco era.
