As you can see, this particular painting is painted in a very different style to my other work. I had a specific idea in my head that I wanted to produce a Christmas icon. The image was in my head that I wanted so I just went with the flow!! I also painted it on unprimed canvas, which was lovely and I think added to the look of the finished piece.
I will be selling Christmas cards portraying this image this coming Saturday 9th December (2017) at Fakenham Makers Market.
I have had the pleasure to be asked to do a drawing of the nativity to go on the front of the December issue of our church magazine. I am always nervous when I get specific commission especially because of the subject, I didn’t want it to turn out too sweet. I am actually pleased with the result and have used the image for a Christmas card. You can buy the cards from my Etsy Shop! 🙂
My journal has suffered a lot lately because of being so busy, but I had a chance over the holidays to do a bit of relaxing doodling.
After the Christmas services at church, I was inspired by the words of the carol ‘Hark the herald angels sing’. So I decided to do an illuminated page and practice some calligraphy as well as meditate on the words.
First I wrote out the words and then decorated the page with print off cuts, coloured pencil, sharpie pen and collage.
It’s good to be back after the holidays, so Happy New Year all you lovely people. I look forward to sharing my work with you during 2016 🙂
Sooo busy at the moment, but I thought I’d show you my latest product for Christmas, ‘Dragon Fly’ and ‘Home Sweet Home’. Colour in picture kits with all you need – just colour in and hang on the wall!They’re not in my shop yet but you can get them direct from my studio! 🙂
