autumn leaves

A lovely weekend of walking, it was freezing but sunny and now My Jack Russell is an old man he has to wear his coat to keep him warm. He hates it!

Sky is the theme for Illustration Friday this week. I always feel happy when I can see vast expanses of it.

My main inspiration in life is nature, I live near the sea so the theme for illustration friday this week of water is just right.  Water related patterns are used a lot in Japanese textiles, (another love of mine) so I drew some of them for this pattern which weirdly looks very 70s inspired.

paint effects

More paint effects found on boat bottoms! It's the time of year when the boats are brought into dry dock to be cleaned and painted - a massive task. So before that happens I get my camera out and I'm in my element!

The theme for illustration friday this week is mirror. I love vintage mirrors and so I've layered my drawings with a photo I took of flaking paint, to give that old speckled mirror look.

pom poms

Dahlias always remind me of allotments and are some of the last flowers still going strong as autumn arrives. I love their different shapes and colours.
