Lions are very popular, so I thought it’s about time I drew one or two; this one was looking very proud. As with many of my drawings, this was based on a photograph by our talented daughter Loren.
I went for some different colours this time; thinking this would fit well with grey furniture or decor. When in sunlight or a well-lit room, the gold vein really pops out. Acrylic on box canvas 24×24″.
First painting of the year and I fancied a bit of colour! It’s in acrylic, nice and big at 36″ by 36″ called Salsa, because I thought it looks a bit hotter than some of my other paintings…
The first round of the Italian range pots went down so well that I am now making a new batch. They take two days to make, starting with cutting the shapes, leaving overnight to leather harden; then joining together the body; attaching a neck and carving ’til it is nice and smooth. Each one unique.
This was the first batch, now mostly sold…
Some my new pots I have made in my Italian range. Because of the way these glazes work, I never know how they are going to look till I open my kiln, how exciting!
My pencil drawing of a Zebra; such a pretty animal, and lovely to draw.
As a few people have requested a work-in-progress, here are three stages of my new drawing of a camel with the very flyaway hair.
I have been hand-building some new shaped vases inspired by some Italian pottery we have seen there; I really enjoyed working out how to make the shapes. Will definitely be making some more. The pictures show the two sides of the same pot.
I wouldn’t normally choose to do a drawing of pigeons, but I did think these two looked rather cute…
