An Emu


Pastel Pencil on Canson MiTeintes 13cm x 20cm

When I saw the photo of this fun looking emu, I just knew I had to draw him.  This quick little pastel was finished in less than 2 hours.

Thank you to Crias for the original photograph.


Grapes & Pears

Grapes & Pears

Acrylic on Canvas 55cm x 38cm

Here is my piece for The Exhibition for Women Artists at El Corte Ingles, Elche, Spain being held in March 2013.  In previous years I have shown work that I felt comfortable painting, so decided that for this year I would do something completely different.  The grapes were a challenge – trying not to make them look like brussel sprouts!  Not entirely happy with it, so I think I’ll leave painting still lifes for a while!

Thank you to M Prince for the use of the original photograph.

Below are the works in progress
