I don't know about you but after all the rain and grey days Poppy and I are very much looking forward to Spring and to be able to go out with out wellies and a scarf. Also to be able to take proper daylight photos of art!!
It's my birthday soon and my daughter treated me to a new art book called Creative Girl. It's a really beautiful book and very inspirational and features lots of watercolour art. The book gave me the confidence to try some new things and the result is this postcard for my spot for the Roc Nicholas Design Team this month.
I used Roc's fab Bunny stamp which can be found right here
I began by stamping Bunny in a light grey ink and then painting using Derwent watercolour pencils. I don't use the pencil directly to the paper I take my water brush to the pencil and lift the colour from the nib.
I wanted to create a pretty and full of energy postcard so Bunny had to be my favourite colour combination of pink and turquoise. When I had finished adding colour I went over Bunny outlines with a pencil to give him a hand drawn look.
Only 41 days till the clocks go forward in the UK folks!! :) :) :)
Wishing you a lovely day. Sam xxx
