Happy New Year

It's been a very long time since I've had something I felt was right to put on this blog. I've been very busy the last few months with a supper club that my boyfriend runs. Mostly anything I've drawn in that time has been connected with the blog and suppers in one way or another, mainly making a lot of posters which you can see on my tumblr.

Here is a little thing I wanted to do since the start of winter:

Family Portrait.

Spent most of my weekend working on this. Acrylics on the lid of a wooden wine crate. It's a late submission for a charity auction. Hopefully it'll get accepted. Below the camera-phone quality photo is the digital colour sketch I did before hand. I need to paint more. It was fun.
It's a sort of a family portrait of cacti. Inspired by the Old Man cactus and Old Lady cactus in the middle. It ended up a bit crowded and I prefer the shapes and sizes in the digital but I guess this is what happens when you haven't painted in about a year. Also this is easily the biggest piece I've ever painted.
