Unicorn in a Flower Meadow

I have recently finished a commission for a baby girl's bedroom. I wanted to paint something that would be very pretty and last her for longer than just her baby years.
I came up with the idea of a unicorn in a flower meadow, if you have looked at my art work or read by blog posts, you will know I have a bit of a thing for unicorns! I did a sketch and chatted with her Mummy about it. She really liked the idea, so I got to work.
The canvas is A1 and I used acrylic paint, I am getting very fond of using acrylic, it was a perfect medium for this piece as it leaves a soft satin sheen, and I thought that added nicely to the magical feel of the painting.
I took photos as I went along, so you can have a look how the painting evolved. I was really happy with how it turned out, and so were the recipients. Hopefully it'l be a picture the little girl will remember forever, I still remember the pictures I had in my room when I was little!

And here's the finished piece.

I really like taking on commissions, so if you would like one, I would be really happy to hear from you, and we can discuss what ideas you have, and I can bring them to life for you

Father's Day

Not long to go now until the 16th June (Father's Day in the UK just on case you needed reminding!) and I thought I would write a quick post to let you all know about my cards..... I have quite a few designs which would be perfect for any great Dad out there. they are all blank inside for your own special message, why don't you have a look and get yourself one in really good time for the big day, and make the card you give your Dad really special (and a little bit different) this year. Here are some pictures to inspire you.....






Melancholy Guitar Bear

Dancing Bear

Drummer Bear

Jazz Bear

Best of all, the cards are A6 and fit really perfectly in a 6 x 4 frame, so if he loves the card he can frame it and keep it on the wall forever. Also, some of the above are also available as A3 prints, so if he deserves a present too, you could treat him with a print. Go on, you know he's worth it, my husband (and amazing Daddy to our 2 children) definitely is!

Painting Together

If you have been reading my blog, looked at my website, you may have noticed that I love drawing and making! It such a nice way to spend time. Now one of my new favourite things is painting with my little girl. She is big enough now that she getting so good at drawing and painting too (I will have to have her as my apprentice!) that we can sit at the kitchen table together and paint, and we both love it!

Of course my little boy won't be far off joining us too, but when it comes to painting with him, there is lots of paint, and lots of mess, so Claudia and I paint together when he is having an afternoon nap!
