‘Midnight Meeting’

I’m very excited to show you this new painting!

‘Midnight Meeting’

The Moon is full and the cats gather in the magical Forest of Felines to discuss vital kitty business. On the agenda this night are the serious topics of where the best sunny spots can be found, the pros and cons of dried cat food and how to get those pesky pet collars off.

I really had fun doing this one using an accidental mix of colour pencil, a few bits of watercolour, more watercolour, because I liked how it looked, some extra pencil followed by several dabbings of pen and ink. I had intended it to be entirely done with colour pencil but as usual I change my mind part way through and fiddle about until I end up with a mash of all different mediums. (Have I use the right word there? I mean different types of paint, pencil etc, not someone channelling mysterious ghostly messages from beyond the Veil…)

If you would like to own a print of this to admire upon your walls, or ceiling if you are so inclined, then by the magic of the interweb you can do so by clicking here which will take you to my lovely little Etsy shop!

Trying Out A New Shoppy Thingy

Greetings all! How are you all? Fluffy and well, I hope. Today, I was not only wondering where birds sleep at night and if seagulls prefer to grab a snooze while floating on the water but also whether there were any decent (and cheap) alternatives to Etsy. I stumbled upon Big Cartel and decided to give it a try. Happily there is a free version where you can upload 5 items which I have indeed done! So, I shall see how it goes and if it works out, then I shall crowbar open my stingy, empty Scottish purse and try the upgraded version for a little while.

5 Yellow Phonebox Items which I Put Up On Big Cartel Today While Contemplating The Sleeping Habits Of Birds.

Talking of birds and cakes, I have actually finished my latest scribblings and will show it off in the next thrilling blog post…

Colour Co-ordinated Snack Time

After a very busy morning of some series procrastination, it’s time to settle down with some colour Co-ordinated ice-cream!

The eleven Faber-Castell pencils I was running low of arrived from the ever excellent Cult Pens. (Not sponsored). I love ordering from them not only because of their speedy service but because they always include a little packet of sweeties!
