little winter birdies

This is where the creating is taking place at the moment...we've not been in the studio so much while the weather's so cold but that doesn't stop the art. I start the paintings with a dip ink pen and then add the watercolour. These three little birdies are common here in Western Europe: a blue tit, a magpie and a robin. The blue tit is particularly tiny! They're already listed in my Etsy shop... 
 ...along with this watercolour: Quiet time...

a dance in ink and watercolour

This last week I've been working on these ink drawing and watercolour paintings. I use a dip pen which has a wonderfully sketchy quality on the watercolour paper I use. I also like to use a water soluble ink which mixes nicely with the watercolour paint when I apply it. These three pieces are already listed in my Etsy shop.
