Belle in Jean Cocteau's La Belle et la Bête for Colour Collective Alizarin Crimson
I've been very busy, but I couldn't pass up the gorgeous Alizarin Crimson that was this week's Colour Collective theme, so I snatched a few hours to do a little picture. I didn't want to do anything complicated, as I was essentially using this as R and R, so I chose to do a little picture of ...

An Emerald Green dragon for the Colour Collective challenge a few weeks ago.
This is the Colour Collective picture I did three weeks ago, for the Emerald Green challenge (and then promptly forgot to blog about). Since it was Easter at the time, I decided to give this picture a bit of an Easter vibe – but I also wanted to do an emerald green dragon, so I compromised: ...

A small tutorial for a very simple needle felted star
I thought it was about time I posted another tutorial for something, so I took a few snaps while I was felting a very simple star this evening. They're not the prettiest, I was felting while watching tv, and as it wasn't very precise work I didn't have an extra lamp, and I couldn't be bothered ...

A digital piece for Colour Collective Warm Grey, inspired by Austen's 'Persuasion'
This is the piece I did for Colour Collective's 'warm grey' theme. I don't have any warm grey paint (I do have cool grey though) so I decided to digitally paint over a sketch I had done earlier in the week. “Prettier musings of high-wrought love and eternal constancy, could never had passed ...

New blog post about my Pale Pink Colour Collective / Thank You Card illustration. Lots of fun!
I'm shamefully late with my birthday thank you cards this year (partially because I was waiting to see how many I should make, as I didn't see many people actually on my birthday, but mostly because I've been busy), so when the Twitter Colour Collective theme came up as 'Pale Pink' I decided ...

A quick little Chinese New Year watercolour for Colour Collective (Orange Lake Light) on Twitter
I did this little piece very quickly for last week's Colour Collective on Twitter. I've got plenty to keep me occupied at the moment, but my friend gave me some new watercolour for my birthday on the 13th, and I hadn't had a chance to try it out all week! Also, one of my lovely new colours was ...

A Cobalt Turquoise Light fairy for Colour Collective
When the Colour Collective theme turned up as Cobalt Turquoise Light, I knew I had to do a watercolour for it, as that is a colour I have had in my watercolour box for years, and although it's not my most neglected colour, it doesn't get enough love. I thought it was a good colour for a fairy, ...

A little watercolour of King Arthur for Colour Collective's Burnt Umber challenge
I was watching a documentary on King Arthur, so when it came time to whip up a quick picture for Colour Collective on twitter, I went with him as my theme. The colour this week was Burnt Umber, which I thought worked quite well for a dark ages watercolour sketch. According to the documentary, ...

Princess Nest of Wales for Colour Collective Mustard Yellow
I was watching Tony Robinson's Walking Through History the other day, and as he was in Pembrokshire he touched on the story of Nest ferch Rhys (c.1085–1136) who is commonly referred to as The Helen of Wales. I'd not heard of her before, and thought she had an interesting story, so used her as a ...

A quick little piece of fan-art for Disney's Beauty and the Beast
I did the original sketch while watching the film a week ago. I'd been watching Broadchurch with my mother, and really needed some Disney as an antidote. I used to draw Belle a lot when I was teaching myself to draw at around age 9–13, so it was nice to revisit her. I don't do much fan-art these ...

Last week's Colour Collective: Flame Red & Puffins
A little piece I did for last week's Colour Collective on Twitter. The colour was flame red, although this isn't actually painted with Flame Red, because I don't have that colour paint: it's a combination of Cadmium Scarlet and Winsor Red. I'm not even at all fond of this image - it looked a lot ...
