Watercolour sketches and line drawings from Canada

I’m still visiting Fernie in BC, Canada, and I think the wildery aspect is getting to me! Here are some sketches from my sketch book:

Some of these line drawings will be making their way onto fabric for a dress I’m designing!

Watercolour play

I’m visiting someone in BC, Canada and have a stunning view of the rockies from panoramic windows. While distracting, the inspiration is filling me with creativity. This little painting was for Colour Collective last week, and the colour I had to use was Viridian (green).

After many years of good intentions, I’ve finally started to paint flowers. These are my first attempt:

Watercolour in the mountains

I’m visiting Canada for a while and happen to be based in Fernie, BC with a window view of the beautiful Rockies! This is wasted on me (creatively speaking) as no matter how hard I try, I can’t draw or paint mountains well. So I decided to just paint imaginary mountain dwellers, because, what else can you do. Having said that, the ever-changing mountains are hugely inspiring to wake up to every day. I’ve fallen in love with this place!

Sitting on Depression

An illustration about depression, the disease that you can sit on. For a while.

Watercolour in sketchbook

After such a long time spent without feeling creative, I’m slowly getting back into drawing and painting by making mini sketches in my sketchbook. Also I have a new set of watercolour paints so am playing with them. Here’s a tiny sketch – need a smaller brush!
