More Bunny pics to end the year

Phew, I did it, 31 Bunny pics in 31 days. Most of them Christmas related. I feel gooood. I set a goal, had fun and achieved it.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing Bunny as much as I have had creating the images. Here are the final set for the year.

I want to thank you all for following me along on my continuing art journey. I hope you stick around for a while longer. Happy New Year to you all and I hope you all have a happy, healthy, fun year ahead.

Coming in January...

Just giving you all a heads up as to one of my plans for January. Leslie Saeta is running her 30 paintings in 30 days challenge again this year. I must admit this is the first time I have heard about it but am keen to participate. You can follow along with everyone, or join up yourself here... http://30paintingsin30days.weebly.com/

One of the things I have been thinking about lately is that I need to do more painting. So what an opportunity to do just that. I am telling you all here to try and make myself accountable. If I've said I'm going to do it then I am more likely to follow through. You know how it is...

Before Christmas I bought 2 sheets of Arches watercolour paper and this morning I got busy and cut it up into 30 sheets. Yes they are small. Around A5 size but I figure small is less intimidating. Small can be lots of fun. I have larger pieces available as well if I feel the need. But I think it will look pretty impressive to see 30 paintings all the same size.

So here they are...


30 sheets of watercolour paper.

I am thinking I will follow a theme for my paintings, or possibly short runs on a few different themes. Just see how things go. Possible topics are faces, cats (of course), and food. Of course they could end up random. No pressure here to do a certain thing except paint. I hope to try some different techniques and colours. Most of all I just want to have fun and do what I love - paint.

I will post updates showing how I am going during the month.

Its a Bunny Christmas

I had so much fun with Bunny in October and Drawloween that I have decided to do a Bunny Christmas. It is going great.

To start off I did my Bunny version of the 12 Days of Christmas. What do you think?













The rest of December will be filled with even more Christmas fun with Bunny.  I hope you enjoy.

Illustrating Jackie's poems

A lovely author I know, Jackie Hosking, has offered people the chance to illustrate some of her poems. As soon as I read them I had images flying through my mind that I just wanted to put to paper for her.
The first one I did was for Bedraggled. I was so pleased when she accepted it and posted it on her blog.
Bedraggled


I have also drawn the following illustrations for a few other poems, that she has also accepted. 
Old Dog

Catch a Dewdrop

The Beach


It is such a wonderful thing to be able to illustrate such beautiful work and get a bit of free publicity as well. But that was not the main factor for me. There are still a couple of other poems I am hoping to do illustrations for when I find the time. 

In the meantime check out her wonderful work and what other illustrators have created as well... https://jackiehoskingblog.wordpress.com/poetry/the-bottom-drawer/
