The Vintage Garden

This has been my labour of love for the entire month of February, and I love how it turned out! I like the symmetry of the topiary, the details of the garden furniture and even the colour scheme, with which I struggled a bit at the beginning. I’m getting more and more accustomed to this style of painting, and I think I might have found my perfect match. Hope you like it to!
The original painting will be available for purchase in my Etsy shop, but I’m planning to add postards and prints as well.

A new illustration

I have been obsessed with hot pressed paper lately. And with some illustrations sketches I’ve been working on. I’m still experimenting with large washes, but love the added texture, particularly to the clouds.

The illustration is available on my Etsy shop.

September always brings a renewed energy with it. The days start to get shorter, the evenings are cooler and it feels like you have a second chance to start something new with a fresh and relaxed mind. September it’s the month for planning the rest of the year, thinking about Christmas, deciding which new tv shows to watch, having a wardrobe makeover and a house spring-clean. And it’s the month when you start to slow down again after the hustle and bustle of the summer months.

The House Garden

Just finished this House Garden illustration inspired by one of my mum’s kitchen towel from her dowry. I decided to use Arches hot pressed paper, and although is not my favourite brand, I think it was perfect for this subject. And I’m already planning to make some more on a similar style.
The original painting will be up on sale on my Esty shop sometime this weekend. 
Happy weekend to all!
