Thumb-MyFlat

I have recently moved to London with my hubby, the moving was hard work but we made it! I have never lived in a city as big as  London before, so I thought I will keep a “doodle” diary of what I see here, and I would like to share it with you…. :)

Thumb-OnMountain

I have been meaning to paint something scenic and “nice” for a while, and been thinking up ideas/concept in my head. So one day last week in my half awake state  this image popped into my head…

Thumb-whenpigsfly

I was digging through my old PC’s hard drive and came across one of my final year project at Uni. We had to illustrate a story and I opted for a children’s book. I absolutely adore little piggies, it’s difficult to look at a piglet and not smile….

Hello! I had my very first exhibition in London recently and it was loads of fun!  I enjoyed spending time preparing for it, including finding a great camping table at Argos and sourcing materials for making my very first batch of gift cards!

Thumb-Gibson

Here is the painting I’ve done for a very cute yorkshire terrier called Gibson. Unlike the previous dog Jasper, he has a lot more short curly hair and a fluffier look. I painted him on a 50cm x50cm canvas using acrylic paint. Below are some images to show the progress of how I created this painting… :)

Night At Sea

Thumm-NightAtSea

A few weeks ago we went out on the boat for a night trip out at sea and even though it was very cold, it was a fun experience. It was the first time I’ve seen so many stars in the night sky and when I squint, I thought I could see the Milky Way. We also spotted a few shooting stars and satellites!

Under the Sea

Hello everybody, it’s been a while since I posted new paintings up here, but here it is – “Under the Sea”

This was originally a doodle I done a while back and I’ve been meaning to paint it because I had good feedback and it’s a really cute painting! I’ve always love the night scene, with stars and moon to create a nice atmosphere.

Sleepy Head

Thumb-Sleepy Head

Here’s the latest painting I’ve done, and I’m pleased to say it has been snatched up quick! But I thought I’d post it on the website anyway. This style of painting is a little bit different to my usual 2D flat style, but I think it worked really well because it shows the detail creases on the dog’s face which gives it more character.

Thumb-Jasper

An old school friend got in touch and asked me to do a painting of her pet dog Jasper.  After going through all the lovely cute photos she send me of Japser, I picked up certain features and character from each painting and put together a up close portrait of him.

He was a real joy to paint, I opted for the less cartoony, bold look and gone for smoother blending and thinner outlines. I’m rather pleased with the result, think I will try to paint more dogs from now on because they are such fun animals and you can add lots of personality in them. :)

“ZZZ…”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s been a while since I’ve updated the blog, but I’m really happy to finally upload the latest painting! This is a slightly different painting, more like an illustration of a story I think. Gran is having her nap after falling asleep while reading her daily newspaper. Her cat caught the attention of her grandson and an observation between the two began….

Thumb-Musictomyears

I was going through one of my old sketches few weeks ago when I found a doodle I made of a cat with headphones on. I’ve decided to add to it and turn it into a painting, and this is the end result!  Originally I wanted to have a MP3 player in the middle of the two animals, but I decided a good old fashion boombox is the way to go, I just love the old retro designs!

Hello everybody!

I hope you all had a lovely Xmas and New Year. I’ve been a bit quiet over the holiday, because I was up in the lovely North East of UK, catching up with friends and family and in general staying away from the internet…. 😀

Thumb-BuildingMyNestSold

A few years ago when I was still a kid, my family traveled to Derby to visit our relatives. It was a really long motorway journey and as a child I would look out the window and pay attention to everything I saw to keep myself entertained. I remember clearly as we drove pass one of the many hills, I saw a crow “hopped” onto a sheep that was minding its own business. The crow startled the sheep and it still had a good bunch of grass in it’s mouth.

“NO!”

Thumb-No

Here is the painting I done as a doodle a while ago. It had some positive feedback as a doodle so I decided to paint it! I think the inspiration came from observing parents interacting with their children, I have a little brother myself and it often amuses me when my mum can read his mind and give out the “NO!” before he does anything (usually grab something he shouldn’t or opening the door).

Here is a painting which I done a doodle for a while ago. I’ve really wanted to paint it since the doodle was drawn. It’s similar to the “It’s a game of Cat & Mouse” painting which is inspired by one of my favourite artist Rennie Mackintosh. This painting took a long time to do because of it’s delicate details and lots of lines going across the whole canvas…..

Here is a set of paintings that’s similar to the one I done years ago as a present for my lovely fiance, and it’s been the most “crazy” one I’ve ever done so far (there is always time to get even more crazy!). I had a lot of positive feedback from it so I decided to paint another similar set. The paintings includes everything that we both love – cat, monkey, birds, robots and some quirky skeleton characters…
