My entry for the Illustration Friday topic 'Time'. Pen and watercolour.

Sunday, 8 February 2009


I haven't drawn much lately so I thought I'd post a couple of birthday cards I've done for friends. The first is done in the style of the Anthony Ant books by Lorna and Graham Philpot... for a friend called Ant... surprisingly.

The second is loosely based on another friend's cats. Apologies for the poor photo but it had to go in the post!

A quick painting (well, watercolour, watersoluable pens and pencils) that developed into a stormy scene.


This is a rather late submission for the Illustration Friday topic 'pale'. The female Mandarin Duck is very pale compared to the male, but is none the less beautiful. I saw this pair on a visit to Slimbridge.

I didn't know whether to do more to this watercolour, but didn't want to spoil what I had done so far. I think I might try painting them again to try and give a better idea of just how colourful the male Mandarin Duck actually is.


This is a creative outlet for me, somewhere I can put some of my artwork for myself and others to see. Please feel free to leave comments, I love to hear them!
