watercolour, pencil and gouache on paper

i’m working on a new technique  using watercolours.  trying out new things, that’s really the point of this blog, forcing myself to experiment and hopefully develop.  even if it doesn’t really work!  anyway i’ve been looking at lucy jones‘ watercolour portraits which are beautiful and inspired me to try and work into some of my line drawings. i discovered her work by chance, whilst  visiting a friends exhibition at flowers gallery [kate knight “artist for a day“] this week, i checked the gallery website and stumbled into her work.

roses in the garden

gouache on paper

this makes me want to paint all over some silk and make a dress out of it?  perhaps i will.  the little roses look a little like a messy tana-lawn print for liberty’s.

pencil and gouache on paper

i found this image in my scrapbook and have been meaning to draw her for a while, i can’t remember where she comes from but she looks like she might be a russian ambassador’s wife!  sitting so proudly with her miu miu handbag on her peach leather settee.

oil on board

i started this a couple of days ago, but really only began painting today.  she looks a little pale but i think i’ll leave it for today and have another look tomorrow with fresh eyes.  it’s taken from another drawing similar to yesterday’s lady in the sleeping jacket.

this is a painting i’ve been working on of olly in our garden at home. i’m working on a few others at present, so perhaps they will get an airing here also.
