Happy Christmas to all and a couple of artworks

8x10 inches
Coloured pencil and Gouache on watercolour paper
The Hidden Garden
8x10 inches
Watercoloured pencils, regular coloured pencil and Faber Castell pitt pens on Pastelbord
It's been quite a long time between blogs and most of the artworks I've been working on lately have been commissions for Christmas so can't be posted for a couple more weeks.
I have an article in the latest copy of Australian Artist entitled You Can Draw on Absolutely Anything which discusses just some of the many surfaces you can use with coloured pencils. You can see my High Tea pictured on the cover of the latest issue.
Fatso is a gift for my Sister-in-Law who was devastated when Fatso passed away unexpectedly last month and this was one of the last photos taken of him.
The Hidden Garden was done just for fun to try out some different combinations of media. It didn't work out quite the way I had planned but it was nice to try out different subject matter and materials.
Hopefully I can get back into some regular blogging over the next couple of months.
Wishing all of you a truly wonderful Christmas and a really happy year in 2013 :)
