Craft Fair 13th May

On 13th May I have a stall at Flittons Garden Centre craft fair in Wallington. I have recently been working on some more of the small original paintings for cards as shown below. The stall will also have small framed paintings and cards made from prints of my paintings.



Winter into Spring

I picked up this small twig with some lichen to paint and then added some snowdrops and violets and a few fading grasses to make a more interesting composition and show the transition from winter into spring.

Craft Fair

This is my stall at Flitton's Craft Fair today in Wallington. It was a very friendly place with lots of regular stall holders who were very welcoming. I didn't expect the weather to be freezing with snow on the ground in March but we had some customers and I sold some cards. I am hoping to attend again in May when hopefully the weather will be better.



Pen and ink 2

This teasel was found while walking on Pulborough Brooks in April last year. I liked it because the teasel head is at an interesting angle which gives the plant character.
The main challenge we transporting such a prickly specimen home!


Pen and Ink

Now winter is here and there is no colour around I have returned some to pen and ink drawing as the subjects around at this time of year are suited to this medium. Here is a recent drawing of a Douglas fir cone I have completed. I drew it magnified to 1.75 it normal size so it makes more of an impact.



Cards

Today I was making these cards for a craft stall I am doing in March. They are a series of original pansy paintings I did last winter. Most of the cards I sell are prints of paintings but these are the original watercolours.

The teasel is currently being used for a pen and ink study.
