I attempted a very quick impression of a beautiful painting of Spain I saw on the internet. It didn’t quite turn out, but that’s what art is all about! Experimenting, being inspired by other artists, trying things out, learning and having fun 🙂 Also it definitely didn’t help that I didn’t have a palette knife haha

I got a small ‘DIY’ art kit with a tiny pot and some fluid paints – I tell you it’s fun, super easy and effective, and looks amazing! If you’re not super confident in your art skills, this is a great technique to try out.
A birthday card, and my cute little pup – in watercolour 🙂
I made this little piece a while back, when I was getting used to returning to Australia. I love the smell of eucalyptus and this koala is just too cute!
I experimented with using watercolour and Copic markers together, and I quite like the outcome.
I love painting flowers and ferns, their shapes and colours are just so appealing. These paintings aren’t perfect, but I like them anyway.
One benefit of having to come back home and be isolated, was getting to spend SO MUCH time with my cute lovely fluffy-butt doggo, Soda. She’s just the absolute best so I had to try to paint her. I think I’ve managed to capture her essence of cuteness 🙂
I’m always inspired by nature. The beautiful colours and feelings it evokes. I’m never more relaxed and happy than when I’m at the beach or surrounded by greenery.
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!
I saw a similar image to this on Pinterest and really liked the idea, so I made my own galaxy in a lightbulb for a friend 🙂
As 2019 starts to wrap up, so do my travels around the world. In October I visited Poland, and I was so excited to experience a ‘real’ autumn with so many colourful leaves! It was so beautiful: red, orange, yellow covered the ground. Huge piles of leaves everywhere, so much fun to kick my legs through them and make them dance!
