- Amazing artists
- Most of all I've discovered a love for painting
Jim Kay's painting of Hagrid really kicked off my interest in watercolours,
I just wanted to try and paint it and ended up having a great time.
I'd been on a Harry Potter high and so decided to practice painting a box of Bertie Bott's every flavoured beans.
For my husband's 29th birthday I painted a bottle of Marmite. He truly loves the stuff. Him moving to Japan, where Marmite is a foreign concept goes to show just how much he loves me.(^-^)
This is Loki, he is my first pet portrait. Painted for a friend who lives far far away.
An Etegami inspired postcard, in anticipation for the rainy season here in Japan, from June to July.
Here's my obligatory first watercolour strawberry.^^ I've learned a TON from this painting.
