I was feeling the Christmassy/New Years spirit today, so got doodling and drew this winter village scene! Drawn with fine-liner pen on paper.
I know it’s a bit wonky in places, but it’s just a quick sketch that I thought I’d share! My favourite part is the two children making snow angels!

Although these were taken in May they have a very wintery feel to them - the sun was setting on an overcast English evening, so the colours were very grey and blue which I love. 

These were taken with a prime lens and an inverter ring to get those close up shots. I love that there is only a very small area of focus in these.

Here’s something I’ve been working on for a while now - this is what a friend once said to me when I feeling a bit disillusioned about something. I told him I would write it down and put it on a wall somewhere, and now I have! (well if the wall is the internet at least…).

I have always loved typography, and I love it when digital and hand-drawn art are combined, so I first drew this out on paper, where I then went over it in fine black pen. When I was happy with it I scanned it into the computer and played around with textures and colours until I was completely satisfied with it!

Here are some 35mm film photos from a balloon festival that we visited in Belgium. I really love the colours in each of these - the sky came out a really vivid blue which I really like.

If you want to see some more photos from the festival, but digital rather than film, check out my boyfriend’s post here!

35mm film in Belgium.

I really like old buildings, especially those with interesting architecture, so when I got an opportunity to visit the St Vicentius church in Eeklo with some friends, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take some photos!


Some more 35mm photos taken on the beach at Hayling Island. I’m really pleased with how these all turned out - I love the soft colours and the little details like the tiny moon in the sky over the beach, and the subtle lens flare over the silhouetted grass.

Here are a few pictures taken around Bath with my boyfriend’s medium format camera, which was a really cool experience (if you want to know more about the camera, click here).

It took a lot more work to get the photographs looking good, but for a beginner and a first-timer with a medium format camera, I think I did pretty good!

Here’s my latest project - this was a commissioned piece, and I was pretty much given free reign with it, as she wanted a drawing created of this view, but didn’t have any specifications on size or media! In the end I used ink, watercolour, coloured pencil and pen to create the piece, and I’m really pleased with the result!
If you want to see a time lapse of me creating this piece, head over here, as my boyfriend kindly created a video of it! It’s pretty awesome to see three hours of work condensed down into 2 and a half minutes!

Another quick 35mm photo for you! Here are some adorable otters that we saw while at the zoo this time last year. They were all sunbathing and playing together on top of the roof, and it was too cute to not take a picture of! This was one of my first proper attempts at using a 35mm camera, but I still think it’s pretty good!

Here are two sketches I made during my art foundation last year - our life drawing model was also a professional dancer, so we took advantage of this, and got her to dance while we sketched her.

I love the feeling of movement in these two drawings, as you can really feel the energy within them, as the figure moves across the page.

Some more quick life drawing sketches from my art foundation for you! Created with ink, these drawings were made in around 2 minutes each, where I was just focussing on the shadows on the subject.

We used a hard beam of light from a lamp to create strong shadows on the model. I tried to use as few marks as possible to show the strong contrast between light and dark on the figure.

Here’s a few life drawing paintings that were created during my time in my art foundation course.

These three paintings are between 10cm and 20cm square, and we were challenged to create these against the clock (giving us 10 minutes per piece) as well as using a large brush (around 2cm wide - not too big, but pretty small considering the the size of each piece!).

This was to help us loosen up our painting styles, and to help us to not dwell on a piece for too long.

Side note - please ignore the weird easels in the background - I always forgot to put the background in until the last minute!

Here’s my latest project throughout it’s life;

It first began when I created some Silk Screen prints last year during my Art Foundation course, where I was creating some work around the idea of magic. I loved the design so much that I wanted to include it in another piece later on.

I decided I wanted to use it as the stars in a night’s sky, and chose to make a Lino print with it, as it seemed to suit the media, and I hadn’t created a Lino piece in a good year or two!

I knew I wanted to include an owl’s silhouette against the moon, so played around with a few different positions for the owl, and after I finally decided on one, I drew a few sketches to see how I wanted the design to sit in the frame.

I may work into it a little bit more here and there, but overall I really like it!
