Eeeeee SPRING! A few photos from last weekend when I walked through a local flower garden and found these beauties! Which is your fave image?
Today I’m going to start a new painting – on canvas instead of paper though. I found an art easel at the recycle center for $4! And it inspired me to think bigger with my art…excited to see what comes of it!xobec

Shoot it, Sketch it: Red Poppies

Red PoppiesRed Poppy Vase Drawing 2

A friends gave me these flowers whilst we were living in Sydney. I had taken a photo of them on my phone and as I was browsing my phone albums, I thought it would be the perfect inspiration behind today’s Shoot it, Sketch it feature. I’m not sure what it is about poppies but I just LOVE them. Some photos I have taken of them in the past are here, here and here. And other poppy artworks here, here and here.

Some others that enjoy to join in on the feature Shoot it, Sketch it are: The Little Leaf, poppytump, Lunch Sketch, twoscamps, Anna Cull, BreOfficialSite and 30 Minute Art.
If you would like to join in, please do. The more, the merrier!
Oh yeah and this print is now available on the shop!

Red Velvet

I absolutely LOVE the middle of this flower! It reminds me of christmas… maybe an expensive velvet dress with fur edging? :D Red velvet seemed like the appropriate title for this post. How is your week going? We are finally having beautiful sunny spring weather! So yesterday I took advantage of it and went on a 2 hour photo mission…plenty of spring photos to come! xo Bec
