A fresh new blog…


Thanks for reading my first ever blog post on my first ever website (yay!). If you have read any of my previous blogs (there’s been a few of them in the past few years!) you will know that I like to document things… in other words, get chatty about the things I like to do. With this blog, I want to have more of a focus on my creative outlets – mainly art and writing – but also anything else I fancy. It’s my blog and my website, so I can!

As usual, time isn’t my friend, and like any other busy day, it has slipped away from me today. So I will just start with a few little scribbles I have done lately. I went to a watercolour workshop with Doris Chang the other day – a fantastic experience because I am a big fan of her stuff but also because I learnt some new techniques… always good! I had a bit of fun painting some veggies and trying to put my own spin on them (I can never escape the allure of a black ink line!) and I am happy with how they turned out… especially considering I was very hung over at the workshop (surprise, surprise…)

After the watercolour workshop I was all excited to try the new techniques I had learnt to make my new website banner. So I painted up the image below, which I love, but the website wouldn’t take it because of the image size… damn technology (also not my friend). I might need to get some help from my website designer, Ben, (shoutout to him – thanks so much for being amazingly smart!) and maybe he can fix it…

Anyway, I settled on the little lavender spread that you can see on the banner now. Lavender will just have to do for now!

As for the original image, I thought I would put it in my blog post anyway. Hopefully having my website FINALLY up and running will be good motivation to get off my butt and start doing more painting!
