Weekly Sketch – Aloe Collage – 26/08/2016

I really enjoyed making this collage of my potted aloe plant (aloe variegata). Here you can see a watercolour I made of this plant last year – Succulent Splash. It has doubled in size since then.

Weekly Sketch – Decorative Elephants – 23/01/2016

I’ve had three little wooden painted decorative elephants since I was a child; I have no idea where they came from or how they came to me. And no one in my family remembers either. Anyway I am very fond of them, I used to make up stories as a child that they were a family and went on adventures and travels together. The blue one is slightly bigger and so is the Dad; the red one is the Mum – her eye used to made me think of make-up,long eyelashes and eyeliner; and so the orange one is the baby. They still stand in that order on my shelf after all these years and I wouldn’t like to change it.
