Shoot it, Sketch it: Rainforest bird

Rainforest Bird 1

So this weeks Shoot it, Sketch it post is a bit different. Arlo loves scanning the internet for amazing images to show me. He came across this one of a bird and said I should draw it. So below is my interpretation of this wonderful looking bird. I decided to go crazy with the colours and totally LOVE the end result. You can check out this photo and more on the National Geographic website or check out the website of Tim Laman (the amazing photographer!). This print is up on the Shop! xo Bec

Shoot it, Sketch it: Lavender & Chive flowers

My Shoot it, Sketch it post is a wee bit different this week. The painting I did below was done on a canvas to put above our fireplace and was inspired by the vase of flowers I had just picked. So it isn’t an exact replica but was the inspiration behind it. This is usually where most of my ideas come from so I thought it would be nice to share it today! Inspiration is all around us and can pop up at any time! Remember to leave a comment below if you’re joining in Shoot it, Sketch it! xo Bec
