I needed a bit of a distraction from my current commission painting last night… Its rather detailed, and pretty slow going. So I ended up spending a few hours finishing off this little Fantail on a Manuka branch instead. I kinda promised myself I wouldn’t work on anything else until its done, but I could just so do with a break from all the green and blue I’ve been using – Thirty five shades so far, and growing!
I like the simplicity of this A4 piece on handmade Indian Khadi paper – The amount of blank space left in the background with nothing but tea stain. Love how it looks now I have it framed up and ready for its new home.
*Apologies for the crap photos though… D’s flash camera needs to be taken into the shop because it currently wont recognise memory cards, so I’m stuck using my iphone which I can’t manage to hold still enough to get a perfectly clear pic with. Gah!
