Acrylic pour over 3 canvases.  A mixture of acrylic paints by different manufactuers, pouring medium and alcohol.


Also here, 2 items of clothing. Not art, but creative in their own way!


Mid January – A textile piece in The Quilt as a Canvas series. It’s number 4 and is called The Random Ideas of Thinking Out Loud. You can read more here.

72cms x 56cms, cotton fabrics throughout.  Applique, stitch, drawing ink, pen, acrylic ink, acrylic paint. Pfaff Quilt Expression 4.2 sewing machine and Gutermann threads.

This year I have also decided to try watercolour.

Strelitzia – 140lb hot press mould made paper by Daler Rowney with Schmincke watercolours. Windsor and Newton Series 7 watercolour brushes.

And the same again, but this time using pen and wash.

First go at a portrait. I didn’t spend a lot of time on this as I realized the scale of the piece -A3 – was perhaps a little large for the brushes I had, and I lost quite a bit of the fluidity you’d expect of a watercolour. For me, portraits are best in acrylics or oils.
