Pools and Ponds

These little characters started from little pools of watercolour I made, adding bits here and there to bring them to life. They evolved into birds and frogs and dancing bears, a crocodile and something else...could be a pink spotty mouse?




Ok, that was the pools,



now the pond...




We went to visit the newly opened Greenway House which used to be the Holiday home of Agatha Christie.

It's set in stunning surroundings and we had a chance to enjoy the garden while helping Carenza with an easter egg hunt. The tadpoles in the pond were bit of a distraction though.

And I want to say a big thankyou to Joss for being kind enough to give me this lovely award! I feel honoured to be chosen - thankyou Joss, you're so sweet! I'm not sure what I need to do to accept it, but I'd like to pass it on to all my lovely blogs I follow :)

Wow, Jessie, you just have to send your work to some textile designer companies - fabric printed up in these designs would just be fab, like for children's duvet covers, wallpaper etc. You gotta do it! Your work is brill!

Thanks Liz, that's an idea I haven't thought of. I'll look into it thanks!

Hi Ruthie, yes it is good fun because you don't know how they're going to turn out until they're done! I'm hoping to start going back to life drawing at the Folkhouse soon.
