For the first time ever I thought I would be really brave and try to draw something!
I'm still being inspired by Suzi Blu's new book and I believe that's what given me the courage to 'have a go'.
There are many layers to this including a thin layer of beeswax on top, it was a very exciting creation to make because it was also the first time I've used gouache, if you haven't tried it I really recommend it, it's great for creating layers as it's transparent.
The whole thing didn't turn out quite as I planned, I wanted it to be more ethereal, but it's ok.
It was quite a challenge because it's also one of my biggest makes being a 12in x 12in canvas that had been lying around for about 4 years.
I learnt many things whilst making this as plenty of mistakes were made along the way.
Perhaps she should have a crown for the jubilee!
Wishing you a right royal weekend, Sam xxx
