Venetian blinds

Sun through the blinds

Is she an artist’s model? Or just a woman enjoying the warmth falling on her through the blinds which provide seclusion?

A mixed media piece with collage, contour drawing and distortion!

Image 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm).

Last post of the year – wish it was warm enough to sit around in the nude!

Happy New Year.

Hmm. An ink drawing collaged onto decorated papers. Sadly the paper turned out to be very delicate and one of her legs fell off in the process – poor lady! But I like the picture anyway. Image 8×10.5 inches (20×27 cm).

A suitable picture for Easter and spring. Hope we see the sun… Image 5.5×7.25 inches. This is a mixed media painting which I completed while following an online course with Diane Culhane. There aren’t enough hours in the day to do all the painting I want to – all such fun.

It’s available as a print, greeting card or phone case.

A monotype worked in several layers of gouache on Arches paper. The design is loosely based on a picture of an old turf cutting which is said to represent deities. It is from the Gog Magog Hills – an area steeped in tales of mysterious appearances, buried giants and ghosts. (The name ‘hills’ is slightly misleading as they are not very high: just definitely above the flat plain and therefore giving a commanding view.)

Artwork is 7.5×5.5 inches (19×14 cm).

A tiny collage picture (ATC size) which includes a reproduction of a detail from a larger painting. It is so strange how the tilt of the head, the surrounding colour etc. changes everything – she looked quite happy before!

The original portrait sold long ago but this new version is available as a print in various formats here.
