Trying to experiment with watercolors. This time I tried putting acrylic texture underneath to help create a rock effect.
Wanted to try a challenging technical watercolor and so broke some glass over a leaf to draw. It's not totally random as it was in response to some Sylvia Plath poetry...

Sing a song of sixpence was the nursery rhyme I chose for my semester project. I tried to use Ronald Searle type inky birds over textured acrylic backgrounds to give an edgy feel to the rhyme.

A stab at editorial illustration, maybe not too successful yet but was definitely a good experience and I'm really liking the very quick deadlines which need really witty and quick thinking.
I really loved working on brown paper ( I know it sounds strange) but it was interesting to see how colours popped out. I also have found a little interest in medical illustration, it involves so much interesting knowledge that keeps it really interesting.

Objects drawn from the british museum in watercolour. The first object is a vile that is thought to be used to hold perfum, the second is a knife with an ivory handle and the third is a doll, strangly, it is accuratly propotioned but may have been a childrens toy.
