A field of sunflowers


Sunflowers always remind me of my grandparents house. Where the sunflowers would shoot past the garden shed into the sky. Harvesting the sunflower seeds as summer drew to an end.

Love yourself paper cutting


Had the sudden urge to make a paper cutting.

Don’t wanna be owl by myself

Apparently rearranging and unpacking the rest of my room wasn’t enough yesterday, I decided to get a little arty farty. But now I have space, I could do a carpet angel should I ever feel the need…or Pilates without accidentally kicking my bed or the desk.

I had originally wanted to create a five-star rating graphic for any review related posts. However, a star may have transformed into an owl. I may have become slightly obsessed with owl related items. So let me welcome my feathered pixelated friends.

Made with Inkscape and Paint Shop Pro.
I feel like I should name them?

fly with me – watercolour

At school I did GCSE and A Level Art. Although less challenging academically (of which people are always quick to me mention) compared to all my subjects it was the one that caused the most stress having to do complete such a large workload just to receive a decent grade. I could write a Geography essay in 2 hours and get an A*/A…completing something for Art in 2 hours – you’re having a laugh!

Painting wasn’t my forte, I was waaaaay better at pencil/pen drawings, mixed media, photography or digital art. Couldn’t / can’t paint to save my life! *tries to remember password to old deviant account*: The final four are from my A2 coursework based on the theme of ‘decay and discarded’ or as I like to call it How can I justify taking A-Level Art whilst wanting to do a Physical Geography degree? I’ve just had the sudden realisation that some of these are 6/7 years old.

But now with University over, I’ve been wanting to learn how to paint so I grabbed a cheap sketchbook. One thing I loved about a good summers day (i.e. one where there is SUN) at Uni would be that you’d often see hot air balloons flying over campus.

I’ve realised that from watching YouTube tutorials, having watercolour paper makes a whole lot of a difference! But that’s what you get for spending 75p on a sketchbook. It’s refreshing to do something that doesn’t involve any form of technology.
