New printed circle paintings.....

I've been working on a whole series of abstract pieces lately for an interior design company mainly using digital media- long hours on photoshop and it reignited my inbuilt passion for shape and pattern so I've been doing some immediate hands on printed paintings for my Etsy shop and to escape the virtual world!
'Aqua Circles' and 'Crimson and tangerine circles' shown here are the two I've just listed. See
I love working in this way and playing about with the endless combinations and arrangements of simple shapes and patterns.
I wanted them to look very bold and primative with strong colours and to echo Indian or African textiles.

New illustration work.....

Its the end of the Summer Holidays which always feels a significant point in the year. Both my children are now at Secondary school this term so it was an early start getting them out to catch the school bus today. It also meant a much earlier beginning to my working day which was great.
This is one of the new illustration pieces I've finished recently. I have so many new ideas for things I want to do, I feel like my mind is literally buzzing! I love gardening paraphenalia- all the tools, pots, plants, seed packets and the different jobs involved at different times of year. I want to do a whole series of pictures documenting these themes. I'd also like to do the same with cooking and baking.
