Downton Abbey withdrawl

Lady Sybil. Tribute to the end of season 3 of Downton Abbey


Sybil & Matthew, can't wait for season 4!


 Whispering sweet nothings....Hearing some great secrets in response.

Passing on the secret, Mr Bear wants in but the whispering continues....Dog isn't too sure about this secret it's a bit alarming!

Fun with bits of fabric scanned in and collage into the watercolours. Pets posed for me, alarm and all :)

Wool on the hoof

Having never drawn or painted a sheep this was a fun challenge. Just finished reading Barbara Kingsolver book Flight Behavior , a wonderful read set on a sheep farm in the Appalachian mountains. The book is also about climate change and the monarch butterflies, further inspiration.......
For several art challenges.


Just finished reading Barbara Kingsolver's "Flight Behavior". Her description of the Monarch butterflies is wonderful an amazing wordsmith. Highly recommend this book. More monarchs to come!
