Amelia's Magazine

I know this post is a little late but during our dot-to-dot show Amelia's Magazine came to have a look at the illustration work on display. She took a quick snap of my stuffed toy of 'the nothing fish'. Have a look at her article HERE.

Windows installed!

So my painted windows are in their rightful place, on the side of a building! If you just so happen to be strolling up the hill by Havre De Pas towards Mt Bingham anytime soon keep an eye out for these :-)

Finally completed windows!

So after a few days of painting I have completed four window scenes. These paintings are to be placed in four rectangular alcoves in the side of a building. The paintings are in aid of Jersey's womans Refuge. I was asked to paint these pieces for the building to go along side a flower display next to the building. Its been fun :-) Can't wait for them to go up! So here are the final four!
Of course I had to have some parrots. Macaws are great! Next time it'll have to be toucans...

 And a small bird cage, with sparrows and blue tits looking in...

 A cat happily snoozing in the sun...
Many of the things included in these paintings were inspired by my mothers garden... The flowers, the fairy lights and the strawberries to name a few.

Three outta four aint bad

So I have completed three of the four paintings for the spoof windows project. This is in aid of Jerseys woman's refuge, see previous post for more details... Anyway here's the updated shots of what I've been up to!

Woman's Refuge Jersey paintings

I've been painting a few boards to contain scenes in windows to adorn the side of a building near Havre des pas in aid of the Woman's Refuge. Heres a few of the progress shots.
Inital sketches and painting so far.

Changed curtains to blue... brings out the butterfly more. 

This one is a bit more sparse because it will contain the contact details for the refuge on it. 

Added a Macaw because it looked a bit too bare... and he's cheekily hanging off the lights. Quite cute I think!

 This is the one that needs the most work. The others just need the window frames painted and a bit more detail to the main image... but I got quite a bit done today so I'm quite happy :)
