Pet portrait series : Nala the rabbit

Nala the rabbit

Don’t put me back in Lockdown.

Sketch of the day no 1381 in my moleskine sketchbook: Nala the rabbit 

I’m so happy to go back to sketching again now that my new moleskine sketchbook has finally arrived since lockdown has eased, and I did not have to use a different brand of sketchbook. I’m such a creature of comfort.
What can’t you live without?

Portrait of the week : Mary Beard

Portrait of Mary Beard

Final portrait of Mary Beard from the Portrait artist of the year series on Sky TV.
It has been incredibly fun, challenging and rewarding painting the different sitters every Sunday for a marathon 4 hours the past few weeks.
Being part of this art community has truly been eye opening and inspiring.

What am I going to do next week?

Portrait of the week: Professor Green

Portrait of Professor Green

Sundays are now stay home portrait days. Last week’s sitter Professor Green for Artist of the year, live on Sky TV  talks openly about how we need to have conversations about mental health issues especially during this difficult time. It is something I believe in and want to raise awareness to this subject many people find difficult to talk about.
As an artist, I go through ups and downs myself. Somedays it spirals more than others but meditation has helped me a lot, it helps me stay calm and stay focused, but I am also lucky to have good friends who check in on me frequently.
This week, reach out to someone you haven’t heard from for a while and ask without judgement how they are doing. That could be all that is needed to start a conversation. 🙏

Portrait of the week: Clare Balding

I haven’t been posting my portraits here on time but I have been following the show Portrait artist of the week on Sky Tv Facebook live, and painting religiously because it has been so much fun belonging to this art community and seeing other submissions.
Have a creative Sunday my friends ❤️ Looking forward to today’s 4 hour portrait session

Percy the Penguin

Percy the Penguin

Percy was inspired by the zoos around the world allowing their penguins to go on tours around the zoo to meet and greet other animals during lockdown. They looked so happy to be able to roam around and enjoy their freedom whilst we were trapped indoors. How the tide has changed.

Hope the baby Giraffe

Hope the baby Giraffe

So much has happened this year and it felt very much like we were hurtling downwards into the abyss…
Then there came Hope.

Meet Hope the baby Giraffe. She was born in mid April in New Orleans. How to feel sad when you look at that face? She definitely kept me cheerful and hopeful 漣

I was inspired to paint a giraffe after watching this animated video

And then I found Hope.

Happy weekend my friends. Stay alert and most importantly stay hopeful 🙏

Baby Bunny

Baby Bunny

So Easter came and went and the only chocolate I had was a box of painted Leonidas which I shared with baby Bunny 🐰
It’s been a surreal few months and the world is still reeling from it.

Dumpling the duckling

Dumpling the duckling

Meet Dumpling the baby duck. Spring arrived and soon after baby Dumpling was born. Again this was inspired by my hours on YouTube. It was a video of a mother duck leading her 10 or so babies across the road in Idaho. Unfortunately most of them fell into a grated storm drain and sewer pipe but luckily a passer by saw and called the nature conservation people to come save them. It was a happy ending. True story. 🐤

Ping ping the Panda

Ping ping the baby Panda

I started painting baby animals after i painted my first baby sunbird born on my balcony in mid March. Around the same time, I read in the news that a pair of panda twins were born in Chengdu zoo. It inspired me start a series of baby animals born during lockdown. This is Ping ping the baby panda. The name means Safe in  Chinese.
