Wispy Wolf

This is my wispy wolf painted in mainly Brusho pigment and watercolour on cold pressed paper. This A3 piece took eight attempts to get right — the other pieces I created had huge colour layering mistakes because patience isn't something I possess. Hopefully the mounting cost of watercolour paper will smart enough for me to slow down!

Black German Shepherd

I was commissioned to create a piece of artwork to raise funds for German Shepherd rescue efforts, though this was a draft piece (as I’m a bit rusty) — I'm quite pleased with the results, the first time I've touched charcoal for five years!

This soppy black German Shepherd is made with fineliner scribbles, Indian ink, and a variety of charcoal pencils/willow sticks.

Cardinal Finch

This is the initial stages of a cardinal finch painting on cold pressed paper. I want to conserve the drawing so I'll try and keep the colours as dull and distracting as possible, using only the areas highlighted as focal points. The areas of colour are water soluble marker pens with a fine liner and ink base drawing.

Crow and Brusho

I've been looking at a few different bird species to draw and paint, and I've been disappointed that I haven't been hitting it on the head with good drawings lately. So I decided to dive in and paint a crow from a mediocre drawing to test out more brusho as I was feeling impatient.

This painting was created in watercolour, Indian ink and brusho. Brusho gives such vibrant colour with the smallest application, it's replacing my need for ink at the moment just because it's easier to remove from paper and more forgiving than inks, perfect for blundering Laura's.
