Madamoiselle en Paris

Bonjour!! 
Just a little something from my Paris project. I haven’t really had a chance to learn how to use photoshop so I just mess around to see what I can do. These are inspired by Carole Wilmet a Belgian Illustrator. Her illustrations are REALLY cool!! I love the way she uses splashes of ink and colour on pencil drawings!

The Whole World

My little watercolour painting of the world!
I thought I would zoom in on Europe, as that is my continent. This was a gift for my Auntie Marjorie, she was a missionary and travelled all over the world seeing many beauties and experiencing the wonderful cultures the world has to offer. One day I hope to travel too, and I shall set off with my sketch book in hand, recording all the sights to be seen.

Happy New Year everyone!!!! Hope you all had a great holiday, I was back to School today finishing my UCAS application, £23 to apply for uni :O I was shocked! For the new year I challenge you to find some inspiration and create more 🙂 These are my studies from Kate Sutton’s works! She has THE CUTEST etsy shop!!

The First Cake Pop’s!

Merry Christmas!! Hope you have all got what you asked Father Christmas for 🙂 I got some new golden brogues!! These are pictures of a soft pastel piece I did from a Wayne Thaibauld painting. He has been an inspiration to me especially with his unique use of colour, now a days we can change the colours on photographs, but back in the 50’s he had to use his imagination, (he had tonnes of it) he was even a disney cartoonist in his early years! LOVE HIM!! His works are so bright and psychedelic yet somehow still realistic… Genious! I reccomend you google him and look at some of his works, they’re all fantastic! Happy New Year!!!

The Ritz!!

HEY YOU GUYS! 
So yesterday was my birthday!! 18 now YAY! (Super exciting) I thought I’d put up a drawing I did this time last year of the Ritz Hotel London 🙂

This pencil sketch is only about 4×3 inches so it took a lot of concentration!! This is drawn from a sketch of Stephen Wiltshire’s.

Simon Crofts Photography

This is my interpretation of the photograph taken by Simon Crofts. I love his ballet photography, the way he captured behind the scenes; the excitement and beauty of ballet as well as the hard work and determination of the ballerina’s. He also takes really pretty pictures 😛 Anyway… I just started my new job but will still be posting, if I stop doing school work my teachers (and my Mum) will kill me!! Have a great week guys!!

Christmas Fairy

This is a photograph of me when I was little-ish. I really like it because my Dad took it and it reminds me of Christmas when I went to sleep early so St Nicholas would come, and I’d wake up to a full stocking at the end of my bed. So seeing as my current project is on ballet; I thought it appropriate to draw me. Then I decided to do another with ink as well 🙂 Thinking about it now, I can’t remember the photo being taken, but I am sitting here typing this in the same place! Hope you like my little sketches xx
