Pillows for Spring

I just don’t know if there are enough pillows for a post March Break slumber ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s some more:

It’s like Society6 know it’s after March Break because they are 20% off today.

Happy Snoozing!


p.s. March Break was fab. Beauty and the Beast is fantastic!

Green Parrot for #Naturedoodlewash

This photo is a little blurry which fits with watercolor I guess.


I was going to tinker with it some more but I think I’ll just start another parrot instead.

I love close-ups so maybe I’ll just do the head next.

Here’s what it looks like on different products in my Society6 shop:


Any of the arty folks find themselves drawn to painting things in their favorite colors? I seem to be. Name a turquoise animal lol.

We’re at kids’ soccer games all day tomorrow on a really hot day. Maybe I’ll sketch while I watch.

Have a great weekend!

This little ladybug is on my computer desk. I fancy trying a few different ladybug paintings.

I should have left more white space and done big drips. Maybe next time.

And this is how it looks in my shop:

Here’s a few interesting facts about ladybugs

For a beetle they are really pretty. I hope you see one today.

Happy creating!

Selfie Art Day!

Thanks to Susan sharing her selfie today I thought I’d have a go too.

I don’t know why but it won’t let me share this whole photo so I’m split in two ๐Ÿ˜

20160524_154352~2~4~2And here is a very quick not at all the same watercolor pencil of it:


And here it is after I added water:


Too bad they are trimmed and on the side. WordPress is switching things up for me lol.

The eyes are too far apart and many more things wrong with it. I’ll set an alarm for the next time so I’m prepared. It still might be rubbish. Don’t hold your breath but do hold a paintbrush!

Happy creating!

One a Day: Toucan


Two can toucan
If they may
Maybe toucans
dance all day.
Beaks to attention
Wings extended
Swing to the left
And rear upended.


One a Day: Rabbit

I did a kid swap yesterday so with ten year oldsย around, Iย had plenty of time to play on CorelDraw and add backgrounds to picture and whip up a rabbit picture.

I can see now how good it is to do this One a Day that Sylvia started because it gets you in good habits and shows an improvement in your work. If you want to draw orย paint it’s a great motivator.

#ShineALight on Society6


All hail to Teresa for telling me about this funky place ๐Ÿ˜‰

Society6 sells your artwork on all kinds of products like jewellery, t-shirts, mobile phone cases, prints. It was founded by Justin Cooper, Lucas Tirigall-Caste and Justin Wills.

As of yesterday I have this lion picture available as prints and mobile phone cases. I couldn’t up the pixels to get it on mugs and t-shirts. I’ll work on that.


Right now I’m up loading my zebra picture.


Obviously they take a big cut for selling it for you and putting it on all those things. I haven’t got those capabilities and I’m not a renowned artist with huge selling power so this is perfect.

Something to get excited about is they have a blog with featured artists on. Their traffic is huge! I can’t find the stats right now but just imagine mine with about five noughts on the end and that’s what they get weekly.

This is the coolest thing I’ve ever done. Anyone else want to do it? Check out the Society6 ย website. It’s so easy and you keep the rights to your work so you can sell it anywhere else you like.

Have a great day! Get painting ๐Ÿ˜‰
