Cambridge flowers

In Cambridge, my Airbnb host was so lovely I wanted to leave behind a little thank you. So I painted some ever lasting flowers for them to keep. I like the different shades of blues and purples instead of the usual greens I use for plants!

Easy inspiration

I’m currently visiting Birmingham in England. It’s an inspiring place, with street art and free galleries everywhere! I went to the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, and the first thing I saw was this (giant) painting. It was awe-inspiring and I couldn’t help but create a simple version for myself to keep (in my new sketchbook for 2020! Sadly the paper is a bit thin and got crumpled 😦 )

Something about that huge landscape, towering snowy mountains and tiny boat on the water made me just feel, ‘wow’.

Succulents in Watercolour

With every painting I see some improvement, which is very rewarding! I’m learning how to make watercolours appear with more depth using light and shadow – though with a limited colour palette in my travel painting kit it’s a bit of a challenge!

Here’s some succulents I painted for a friend in England. I love painting plants 🙂
