A short while ago I created a tableau of Crows. This latest project repeats the process with doves.
Nine tiny doves are individually hand painted on slips of watercolour paper which have been pre-stained with ink to create interesting background colours. The slips are then arranged in a pleasing fashion and stuck onto background card for framing.
I love to draw, and am fortunate to be able to earn my living this way. My pyrography jewellery pieces are popular and keep the bills paid..and in between making these pieces I try to find time for the traditional pen and ink work and watercolour painting which is my first love. There is often a crossover between my designs on wood, and designs on paper, which are often tiny and always very detailed. I quite often become fixated on a particular image..creating a wood design and repeating it with watercolours and inks to create different effects,
Here are pictures of recent pyrography pieces..
