Live painting at The Art House Cafe, 6/11/18

I was invited to paint a table at The Art House in Southampton last night along with another local artist, Dave Hubble. It was also a chance for me to deliver a recent commission to the cafe – a series of butterfly and caterpillar watercolours that are being used for the different reward tiers on their Patreon page.

I had so much fun painting the table with a really colourful bird themed design using acrylics and glitter! It gave me lots of energy and ideas for future illustrations and made me want to get back in to acrylic painting. (I had to use it so much during my A-Levels that I’ve been avoiding it up until now!). Thinking back to yesterday’s blog post I’d love the Harbour Lights Exhibition to be a celebration of discovery and the contrasts that come with being highly senstive. Big, bold, bright studies of colourful birds with more delicate eggs and feathers.
