90 Bottles Watercolour

Starting to get out of my comfort zone in the studio.
Painting with loose plans and really gunning for it first thing in the morning (it’s when I’m most focused).
This piece is a celebration of my hand and the imperfect quirky little moves it makes.
It’s a 30 X 22  original watercolour piece that is now for sale in the shop.
Accompanied with a little (handmade) pamphlet mapping out each bottle’s name (although, might be more fun to see how many you can guess correctly before you jump to it!).
2 more days off means more time for more paint.

Winter Yellow

Coat: Zara Hat: Love Head Mistress 
Not usually one for colour. I’m a huge fan of closets that are full of neutrals – grey, black, white, black, nude, black.
BUT! Zara was having a sale and I really do love the blue + yellow combo.
Here’s a big “eff you!” to the grey days we’ve been having lately and the grey days still to come.

Meanwhile, I’ve had a lot of time off work which means more creative time, (yay to being broke by next week!)

Some very special watercolours on their way.

New Year – New Watercolours

With my schedule no longer being a psychotic mess, I can take a deep breath and reflect on the plans I’ve made for myself this upcoming year. Creating goals that are small and realistic will be my ultimate path to success in 2016 and I can’t wait to dive into the new studio I’ve built right next door to my bedroom (although..dangerous maybe…). Above is a 15 minute watercolour of a Cream Soda Crush Can. You can purchase the original 8X10 (unframed) watercolour here. Hoping to stay determined during this chilly season.
