Frogs and frocks

I went to an art class this weekend.  God it felt good to be drawing again.  I love loosing myself for a few hours.  I’d been looking forward to it for ages.  Taught by my very talented friend Tracy.  Costumes in watercolour and ink… it was good to get the grey matter going and get lost in the magic scenes and get lost in the atmospheric music (I’d highly recommend Tracy’s classes!) the model Ruby Tingle looked stunning in her striking outfits!

Here’s what I came up with…


When I got home I had a go at a couple digital work from the picture I took…


Can’t wait to get to my studio and do some more.  Must make a trip to Turners for some new supplies ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Will let you know what I come up with! X

Life Drawing Exhibition

A couple of weeks ago I attended an inspitational life drawing class in New Mills. ย Taught by my very talented friend Tracy Fennell Illustration. ย The lesson was one of 6 in a series of life drawing classes. Each week the students explored the human form, using different mediums. ย I joined them on the collage class (the second time I’ve done it!)

It’s really great to get back into the swing of things ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s what I came up with…

Here’s Tracy in action and the beautiful model Alannis (Bunny Girl)

I’m really looking forward to the exhibition this Thursday. ย The standard of work from this course has been phenomenal. ย I’ll be signing up for the next set of workshops ๐Ÿ™‚

A vintage discovery

I’d heard about the Vintage Emporium in Pear Mill through a friend.  Today was the first time I went to visit… I’m in love! What can I say? ๐Ÿ™‚ beautiful vintage clothes, shoes, furniture, cups and much, much more! … I could have spent hours in there ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought it would be a good idea to take a few pictures as I walked round exploring. 

 Tonight sat in the living room surrounded by my paints and pens, I’ve started to draw some of the things I saw… Here’s what I’ve painted so far…
