2020 Art Calendar

Paisley will have the last laugh.
Here's October's Paisley Rabbit illustration, and possibly my favourite in my new 2020 Paisley Rabbit Art Calendar, available now -

It's very exciting to have a full bleed, 12" square calendar. At a larger scale, compared to my 2019 calendar, the images have much more impact and of course you can keep the image page at the end of the monthand maybe even get it framed!!
11 illustrations from the book, plus one new illustration for May.

Work In Progress

Rough Drawing - I can't think of a suitable title yet!
I've been so busy I have nearly forgotten about my blog! Hopefully this post will kick me into a blogging gear. As I type I am waiting for this painting to dry. I have applied a mixture of prussian blue and payne's grey on saturated paper in the hope of creating an atmospheric late evening background of fields and trees under a light dusting of snow. The finished scene will have Mole sadly recalling his old subterranean home and how he hasn't seen it for so long. The two friends are making their way back to Ratty's house, late on a winter's day, when Mole suddenly catches the scent of his home and becomes distraught. Ratty consoles Mole and quickly decides to find Mole's house in the hope of cheering him up.

I love sloshing watercolour around...
