I have recently finished a painting of a Blue Fairy Wren, they are little Australian birds which exist in the lower parts of Australia where I live. My reference for this painting is from Dio Raven, such a great photo to work from, I ]enjoyed painting this little bird, they are in fact one of my favourites.
Here are the progress photos and the final artwork (pictured first). I have used Faber Castell Pitt Pastels, CarbOthello and Caran d’Ache Pastel Pencils on Colourfix Smooth
A little vest I made recently following a YouTube tutorial. How sweet it is. I wanted to see how the colour changing yarn was going to come out for this one. I’ve used Porta Craft Gelato in Banana Split, with a 3.5mm hook. Cotton for the ruffle border. The little buttons match it perfectly!
I’ve changed the way I now blog. I am posting progress on what I am working on my homepage with regular updates. When I’ve finished the piece I will post it in a blog just like this one as a complete blog of each piece. Your welcome to follow current progress as I share updates or even my blogs if you would like to see recent works established.
This is a recent portrait of Maggie in pastel pencils on A4. Here are some of the progress photos from start to finish…
I’ve used Faber Castell Pitts, CarbOthello and Caran d’Ache pastel pencils. She came up beautifully, so much fur but I must admit I really love painting fur. I had a fabulous photo to work from which always helps. Maggie was very precious to her owners!

I am very fortunate to be able to paint such beautiful animals, just like Georgia who was very precious to her owners. She is created with pastel pencils on A3 colourfix smooth
