Wet Felting

My first attempt at “WET FELTING” and as usual I dived in head first! I really should have started with a smaller project. My excuse is that I thought it would have shrunk more during the felting process. Maybe I didn’t have my water hot…

Sketching

I have taken a step back from painting lately for a number of reasons. However I do still like to keep my pencil busy and will often sit doodling. A rather sad looking dormouse. Man Time. Forest textures. Sunflower. Watching You, This Doodle is a…

This month saw the start of this year’s round of art exhibitions. The first of which In:House is held at Shugborough Hall. Unfortunately I am unable to attend myself as it isn’t wheelchair accessible but I am pleased to have a couple of my paintings…

The Hen Party

“The Hen Party” was painted as a bit of light relief. Any resemblance to friends or family members is purely accidental. It was painted in gouache on Saunders Waterford Series paper. “The Stag Do” is a work in progress…..
