We all have those days when the weather outside is cold, drizzly and grey, the days where life piles up not so neatly on our shoulders and we want to climb back into bed, but force ourselves to limber up and 'carpe diem'. On those days, I like to escape to a little imaginary world for a moment of peace and quiet, to dream the world away for a moment whilst sipping tea, and in sunny weather I love nothing more than to just stand and bask in the gentle warmth and listen to the birds. I wonder what...
The smallest amount of sunshine has inflamed my inspiration to paint summer scenes! I wish I could be on a warm beach right now curling my toes into the golden sand. My cat is sleeping on the bed next to me in the sun and my concentration for painting has flitted out of the window along with the dust of winter.
This illustration is for Colour Collective on Twitter so do check out that too to find lots of beautiful artwork by talented folk!
I have decided to develop my fiction portfolio this afternoon. In between sending work to clients from Cafe Nero and packing the contents of my life into small boxes. I'm trying to be a bit more fluid and sketchy in my black and white work.
Now, back to having my head fully immersed in books and illustrating.
