Leaf Printing

I’ve been out in the sunshine sat beneath a Scots Pine tree printing with leaves. Before going out I created a folding map, with rain-painting postcards for the covers, before venturing outside to create in nature. I thought it would be a day for painting shadows of plants in the sunshine, but it was too…

Creating by the Sea

It was a beach day today! The cloud moved over to make way for the sunshine as we arrived at Aberystwyth Stony Beach. I planned to create mixed media pieces on strips of Seawhite of Brighton Cartridge paper. With pieces prepared, rolled and clipped, I gathered my art materials on the beach. I started playing…

Birch Leaf Printing

I’ve been on my first adventure this year to the Brecon Beacons today! I was so excited to wander on Mynydd Illtyd, one of my favourite places to be. After taking in the view from the trig point, the cloud lifted and I had a peep at Pen Y Fan. I settled by the Ancient…

Sketching with an Ancient Tree

I’ve been itching to sketch this fabulous tree, whilst it sketched with me. So today, with my rucksack, out of the door I went to spend some time with this ancient tree. First, I set the materials up so the tree could sketch. Then, with my Seawhite of Brighton Pocket Concertina, I created a sketch…

Sketching Tree Feet

This is one of my favourite sketch adventures, I had such a lovely connection with this tree planted in 1898, making it 122 years old. What an incredible tree standing here looking at me. I nestled against another trunk, to made sure it made it onto my sketchbook page. I’ve been drawn more to nature…
