digital sketch of harriettstella’s Red linen and buttercups 

It was meant to be a quick study of light and colour but hey it turns out those things are hard so I spent maybe two hours on this? it’s meant to get quicker with practise though, right? everyone send me your prettily lighted photos and i will sketch them! (this is not a promise)

my soundtrack while sketching was Missy Higgins’ Oz (try this song, it’s fun.)

I haven’t really done any fan art in a long time so I thought I’d watch some NMTD and sketch Pedro’s and Balthazar’s faces and then make some Pedrazar fan art maybe. But I have discovered that while Balthazar looks cute no matter how you draw him…

It’s actually really really hard to draw Pedro (though credit to Caleb Wells for some truly outstanding expressions…)

In the end, these were my faves for each…

Rotating Gallery #7

I like to hope most Australians will instantly recognise this but for the rest of you…

This piece belongs to a book entitled Possum Magic, written by Mem Fox and illustrated by Julie Vivas. Hush, the little possum, is turned invisible by Grandma Poss, which is great because she can have adventures and not be eaten by snakes. But when she asks Grandma Poss to turn her back visible again, Grandma Poss discovers she doesn’t know how. They go on an epic journey around Australia, eating all kinds of food, until Hush becomes visible again.
