Evidence of my London weekend!

I was so overjoyed to be in the same room as some of my favourite paintings in the world, including The Lady of Shallot (pictured) and Ophelia.

I also glimpsed some of London’s major landmarks on my wanderings, including the Eye, St Pauls, Westminster, the Shard and some very sluggish pigeons!

A little mer-friend for the seals.

Seals, seals and more seals! :D

Couldn’t get enough of the pudgy creatures today.

Henry’s in his cups, and poor Anne isn’t looking too impressed…
There are so many little things I can keep fiddling with on here, but I thought I would draw a line under it for now. Call it an on-going work in progress.
Tudors have been a lot of fun, am thinking about doing some more historically-based projects in the near future so stay tuned!

Progressing with my Tudor banquet scene. Poor Anne Boleyn is still unpainted, feeling very left out!

I am inordinately fond of my dear Bard with his flowing locks, I’m not sure he’s getting very far with his serenading…

(better pictures when I’ve scanned them properly, and not taken pics on my phone!)

Private Commission complete!

(Watercolour, Ink, Pencil)

This was definitely more involved than my other commissions, but it was a learning experience and great fun too.

Next job, mermaid and seals!

Hello New Followers!

Hi there, new followers!

Thank you for coming to say hi, it’s an honour. Since graduating the other day, my life is about to get super busy. I’m in the middle of trying to arrange appointments with London publishers, and doing new stuff for portfolio, trying to find printers, sorting trains, finishing commissions… and everything else in my usually normal, relaxing life!

SO things might get a little quiet over the next couple of weeks, but stick around and i’ll be back soon I promise.

Thanks again for all the support, you’re all shiny stars!

xx Natalie xx

So, I’ve officially graduated!

I can now write BA (Hons) after my name in every Christmas card from now on!

Bring . It . On

Watercolour (A6)
The stars in Greece are spectacular. This was done after a thrilling night-sail, and the little bay we sheltered in was so calm that you could see the stars and Milky Way reflected in the water!
