Ornamental poppies

Some of my favourite flowers are these giant oriental/ornamental poppies with their huge silken petals, paper thin. I decided to get my oil pastels out again yesterday after what must be about 5 years (I can't believe I've neglected them that long) and had almost forgotten how to work with them. Needless to say, perseverance paid off and I'm left with these mottled beauties. Now to get them framed.

Foxes in Waves

Finally managed to get my mitts on an A3 scanner to get a better picture up of these two from a while back. Slightly better than bent camera angles from me hovering over a pad of paper!

Royal Copenhagen Fajance card

Another card design and my first attempt playing with gouache. This is based on a Royal Copenhagen Fajance pattern. Such simple designs and beautiful colours.  LOVELY!
