I found this drawing as I was going through my books and I'm so happy with how this collection has turn out I can't keep it underwraps. I'm loving the added dimension that the watercolour illustrations have in a pattern.
I've been working on a new project and these designs are the combination of ideas from the project. The new project is taking a little longer than I had thought but I'm hoping it will be amazing once it's off the ground. I'm loving the dark background for the Hummingbirds! It really makes the colours pop! I started a Hummingbird lino several years ago and never finished it, I'm thinking it's time to get a move on and get this lovely one printed in relief. I think it will look amazing as a print and as ceramic surface design.
Lucky to be able to see this fella so close to home today. This New Zealand Fur Seal was resting in the rocks today and has been in the area for a few days. I was lucky enough to spot one of these beautiful creatures several months ago when walking along the cliffs around passed Little Bay. This one had a bite taken out of his shoulder from what the very informative National Parks Ranger told me was a Cookie Cutter Shark. Hope he's feeling better and on his way soon.
