Old Eachann: Illustration

Another of the illustrations from Algys second book, The Tree with a Golden Heart.

This art work was created with a range of media. The heron was drawn with Faber Castell Albrecht Durer watercolour pencils, and the background was created using a combination of watercolour, digital painting in many layers, and digital drawing.

“Old Eachann” is available as hand mounted giclée prints and on greetings cards in my Folksy shop.

Young Floraidh: Watercolour Painting

Young Floraidh is a young bunny rabbit who features in my series of children’s books Tales from the Adventures of Algy. This painting was created as an illustration for Algy’s third book The Magical Midwinter Star, inspired by a real and very sweet young bunny who visited my garden a few years ago.

Original art work created with Faber Castell Albrecht Dürer watercolour pencils and Winsor and Newton professional water colour sticks on Fabriano Artistico HP watercolour paper. The actual size of the art work is a wee bit smaller than A4.

“Young Floraidh” is available as hand mounted giclée prints and on greetings cards in my Folksy shop.

Leaping Orca: Work in Progress 1

Work in progress: Leaping Orca

25th March 2018

(Scottish Highlands artist’s studio series, no.1)

The early stages of a new watercolour painting, intended primarily for reproduction on greetings cards, posters and prints. At least another two sessions to do on this one before the final scan and preparation for print – needs plenty more work on the spray, then final drawing on the orca itself.
