This was a 'copy' of one of Susan Seddon Boulet's artworks. I absolutely love that woman's art! I used water colour washes, chalk and oil pastel and acrylic here, she uses oil pastels I believe. Anyway, I did it for mum, because she loved the painting too and it was a fun experiment. But a COPY okay :) Not my original work. I think I've made that clear enough now, given all the copyright stuff going on lately!
These two were heavily influenced by some works I found in a really old chinese watercolour book. I don't know what happened to the book, I think I loaned it to someone who never returned it, most annoying. So, unfortunately I can't tell you the name of the book or the artist.
These are watercolour and chalk pastel on paper and they hang in mum's house, not to be sold.

I love colour.
I love to play with colour and try not to take myself too seriously.
I work with matt acrylics, watercolour, gauche, inks and whatever else takes my fancy. I use artist quality paints and pigments and Arches 300 gsm paper usually. Sometimes I will stretch my paper directly onto a canvas or onto a frame as I work really wet to begin with and I've yet to find a gummed tape that stands up to it.
A bit eclectic really.
