Watercolour backgrounds in progress

Happy Easter everyone I hope you have all enjoyed your days off & got to spend quality time with your families. Easter for me is exactly that some time away, a little relaxing, hanging out with my kids & family & it's also some time for me to plan for the next month. I have been working really hard behind the scenes using different techniques for my work. As much as I LOVE using Adobe Illustrator I have had this itchy feeling about getting away from there a bit & dive into one of my favourite mediums...watercolour. It's been heaven I have just been loving it. You may have noticed snippets on images of work I have been playing around...

A night at the races

Last night I went to the Races at Moonee Valley. For those who love the Melbourne Cup, they hold the Cox Plate race at Moonee Valley. It was a family night where the races were on, food vans were there, & kids were everywhere. There were lush green grass areas for the kids to run all night. No complaints about pokey spaces, & lets be honest who doesn't love to see them run wild & crash & burn in time for bed? We went along with two other families & had an absolute ball. I admit to having absolutely no real understanding or interest in horse racing, I tagged along purely for the quality time spent with my friends. When I am...

Ooooh Easter is coming & it's nearly the end of school term. I am looking forward to Thursday when school is finished & they are all clocked off for a couple of weeks. Time to rest & rebuild. I don't know about your kids, but my 2 are really tired. It's been a long hot term with countless days well over 30 degrees. I can see in Charlotte's face she is dragging herself along, her first term of school has been filled with days of learning, making new friends, mastering the monkey bars & back at dancing. Hudson is tired also, but as he is in year 2, his stamina is a little stronger as he is accustomed school life. Nevertheless he...

Watercolour love

I have been experimenting a lot lately with paint. When I was in college studying, I had one class of illustration a week where I would use pencils & gouache. It was the one class I really looked forward to, a chance to just let go a little, & let my style come through. Back then it was all fashion illustration, & creating really long legged figures & learning to draw clothing on the body. For the last 10 years it's been all about digital drawing, which I absolutely still love to do, but I have been having this itch to get away from behind the screen & paint. I haven't had this urge for a long long time so I...
