‘Snack Time’


Faber Castell Polychromos 16cm x 12cm on Winsor & Newton Bristol Board

This is my donation for the Twitter Art Exhibit 2017 which is being held at the Stratford Arts House,  Stratford Upon Avon, UK  from 1st to 19th April.   All postcards  donated will be sold for 30 GBP and all proceeds of the sales will go to the charity Molly Olly’s Wishes, , which supports children with terminal or life threatening illnesses and their families to help with their emotional wellbeing, whether it be for therapeutic equipment to aid both physical and emotional wellbeing or can be a day out for the whole family to spend some much needed quality time together.

Thank you to M Villazon for the use of the original photograph,

This little ‘puddy’  cat is starting to come alive  – working on the right ear now and slowly darkening it up.   Do you know that years ago I didn’t like cats – it wasn’t until the restaurant where my husband worked had this little stray black cat turn up at 11 o’clock every night to be fed a prawn.  We bought him home, named him Clive and he has now been part of our family for over 5 years.  I’ve drawn several cats in graphite and am now really enjoying drawing ‘close up’ portraits of cats with my coloured pencils.
