Recently I purchased a product called "Brusho".  Ink paints in powder form.  You can either sprinkle it on paper and then spray with water, or add water to it on a palette and use like watercolour etc..  You can create some very interesting effects.  It's messy and unpredictable but I have managed to do two paintings so far that I'm pretty pleased with.  Looking forward to experimenting with it more.

Woodchat Shrike

It was nice to bring out my coloured pencils again and I decided to draw this delightful little bird called a Woodchat Shrike, found in Southern Europe, the Middle East and Africa.  Thank you to Steve Hatch for the kind use of his photo as a reference.

Owl Emporium

I have been very busy the last month or so working on a new venture!  Handcrafted owls, painted with acrylic paint.  I have a brand new website especially for the owls here:
I also have an Owl Emporium facebook page here:

I would love all of my blog followers to visit my new pages and also support me on facebook and please share with people who you think might be interested.  I find it difficult to get the word out sometimes and would love some help :)
