Not much to report again this week. I've been making progress on my map of the Thames but as it's just a pencil sketch at the moment, it's hard to take good photos.
I also did this tiny watercolour painting of Johnny Depp. I hear he was a bit inebriated at the Hollywood Film Awards on Friday night!
This portrait is the size of a two pence piece. I love working on a small scale and thought I'd put my new paintbrush and watercolours to the test! I was partly inspired by Lorraine Loot's wonderful 'Postcards for Ants'. If you haven't seen them yet, go and have a look, you'll be amazed!
That wrinkly pink sausage thing is my finger...if you were wondering. Which you probably weren't.
Here are a few photos of the map, hopefully I'll have more next week as it comes together!
Sorry about the dark pictures, these short, gloomy days aren't very good for photography!
I really can't wait to get started on outlining in pen, it seems I've been sketching for days!
Last week I mentioned that I've entered my blog for the UK Blogger Awards and would really love your vote! I don't expect to come close to winning, but it would be great if my little blog could be seen by a few more people as a result! If you could spare a minute, the link to vote is: http://www.blogawardsuk.co.uk/candidates/Clare-Willcocks
I'm sharing this post on the following blogs: Handmade Harbour, Paint Party Friday and for the first time, Blue Chair Diary Illustrations!
