One of my goals this year is to practice drawing people and anatomy. I love ❤️all the gorgeous figure drawing out there and admire it, typically, from a distance :) so often I’m finding the motivation killer before starting to draw someone are the words “i can’t” or “i don’t know how” how terrible! I’ve started to embrace just going for it. Of course my art will look different than the real image, every work of art is an interpretation of what the artist sees! #seetheprocess#wip#createdaily
REVIVES On the eve of Easter Week, a celebration of new life, a fresh chapter was added to the story of this artwork. Those of you who have followed me for a while now will recognise this piece as the artwork I have been slowly cleaning as a personal project. It was practically black from smoke damage when I found it but time and love has slowly brought it back to life. A wonderful client decided this week it was perfect for a multi hang project I’m helping her with and that her life would be brighter with it hanging in her home.....can’t argue with that! So off it went today in the back of my car, to an art conservationist for the next stage of cleaning, repairs, flattening and fresh varnish. Resurrecting this artwork has been so joyful. I look forward to sharing progress pics with you all in the coming weeks. Happy Easter peeps 💚 #melbourneart#art#antiqueart#artrestoration#artconservation#originalart#affordableart#oilpaintings#beautifulart#buyart#collectart#gallerywall#artcollector#oceanicart#beachart#artoninstagram#lovethatpiece

This 1st floor conservatory was a challenge to bring up to date with style and warmth, but I think the finished result looks amazing. My client’s requests were to keep the sofa and black accents and add to the already existing plants. They had previously tried lots of colours, but never been quite happy. In a room with sooooo much light you can go much darker than you think. This green is deep olive/grey and would look much much darker in most rooms. The main wall was screaming out for artwork, I added one of my own collages #spiritofcollage and 3 prints from @juniqeartshop another major feature of this room is obviously the plants......oh those beautiful leaves!! @nonsense_indoor_plants the most amazing shop ♥️ Happy to have another project completed so I can enjoy the weekend........HAPPY BANK HOLIDAY MANCHESTER 😘♥️😘

Alfred Sisley, View of Marly-le-Roi from Coeur-Volant, (1876) ——— “To paint this panoramic scene, Sisley walked up the hill from his rented house in Marly-le-Roi, near Paris, and selected a northwest view overlooking the town.” -metmuseum.org
