Christmas Family

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.

Nativity

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.nativity-1 nativity-2 nativity-card-4nativity-card-1You can buy the cards from my Etsy Shop! 🙂

Christmas Journal page

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.
