Crazy Days

8x10 inches
Coloured Pencils and Zest-it on Pastelmat

High Tea
4x3 inches
Coloured Pencils and Scratchart on Scratchbord

The Window Cleaner
3x4 inches
Coloured pencils on Colourfix Suede

I must apologize for not posting in a while. We had our son's 21st Birthday on Saturday night and have been busy preparing for that and all the interstate family who were travelling down for the event. We then got a phone call on Friday to say that the caterers we had booked for the event had just gone into liquidation and so it was then a mad rush to get some food together for the 70 guests we were expecting. We got there in the end and it turned out to be a lovely night.

These are also some of the artworks I have been working on over the last couple of weeks. Lola was a commission and High Tea and the Window Cleaner were both done for the upcoming Australian Society of Miniature Art National Awards Exhibition.

On a different note, my tutorials can now be purchased from a brand new website that specialises in selling tutorials iPublicate. The PDF's will come as an instant download once your payment goes through and so there won't be any delay as there is on my other sites, where I need to send the tutorials through manually. If you are interested in purchasing my tutorials, please give this site a go.

Grandpa Elliott in Miniature

Grandpa Elliott in Miniature
3x4 inches
Coloured Pencils and Scratchbord tools on Scratchbord
This is the second time that I have taken the time to draw Grandpa Elliott's Portrait. I wanted to try out some scratchbord in miniature and combine it with coloured pencils and his wonderful beard and the highlights on the glasses seemed to lend themselves perfectly to scratchbord art. This artwork is for the upcoming Australian Society of Miniature Art exhibition and with entries due by the end of next week, I am rather ambitiously (or stupidly), hoping to get another one completed within that time frame.
