Hi there, and thank you!

Despite being pretty busy at school, I am available to discuss commissions and collaborations. You can find my email address here. Cheers!

So this is what I do at school. This is a grisaille study I finished yesterday. Well, it’s unfinished, but it’s my 2nd painting here at the academy so I’m happy with the improvement. 
It was painted over one week using raw umber, ivory black and lead white hue.

Study of lemons ~ watercolour (2014)

Trying a more naturalistic approach to these, treating them as studies rather than classical botanical illustrations. Something I am going to do on weekends when I have down time from class!

Helianthus annuus ~ Watercolour on paper
This was a birthday gift for a friend, quicker than my usual approach. Been a long time since I’ve done a watercolour! Been super busy at class, cramming new concepts into my brain. Doing this sunflower was pretty relaxing.

A while ago I posted a watercolour of a Cape wagtail I did - well this is me this morning with a wagtail that built a nest in our yard. She is insulating her nest with fluff and feathers, so I have trained her to sit on my hand in return for some cotton fluff for her nest
