This is where the creating is taking place at the moment...we've not been in the studio so much while the weather's so cold but that doesn't stop the art. I start the paintings with a dip ink pen and then add the watercolour. These three little birdies are common here in Western Europe: a blue tit, a magpie and a robin. The blue tit is particularly tiny! They're already listed in my Etsy shop...

This last week I've been working on these ink drawing and watercolour paintings. I use a dip pen which has a wonderfully sketchy quality on the watercolour paper I use. I also like to use a water soluble ink which mixes nicely with the watercolour paint when I apply it. These three pieces are already listed in my Etsy shop.

These are a couple of very special etchings. They are both printed on beautiful handmade paper from Nepal which has a soft natural colour and structure. A friend of ours runs a charity in Nepal and makes yearly visits to Kathmandu. On her recent visit she brought me back a pack of fabulous paper. I featured the etchings themelves a while ago but I wanted to print these special editions because I think the etchings themselves fit well with the qualities of this paper. They are both here and here in my Etsy shop.
