About Me

My photo
Hi I'm Clare, I live in the South West of England in the seaside town of Torquay. I adore playing with inks, paints and generally getting messy. It is the calm place which fits in between my hectic life whilst working as an outreach support worker, looking after my son, daughter, foster son and hubby. Not forgetting our gorgeous springer spaniel, Suzi.

A little me time!

Two week half terms are definately the way forward!  I had a week off last week and was able to enjoy the sunshine and some quality time with my daughter.  Sophie has returned to school this week. Will, my son, is back at college and hubby is at work.  What is a girl to do with herself?  Well I embarked on a project for me!

As some of you already know I started the background for my canvas on Sunday afternoon, painting outside, in the shade, enjoying peace and quiet (and the tranquil sounds of next doors water feature).  Fully equipt with a handful of stencils and my Dylusions paints I set about mark making with  my glorious array of colours.

So over the duration of the last couple of days, my bloom began to grow, and grow!

Using Neocolour II crayons I outlined my bloom and blended with a paintbrush.

With some shadows behind, my bloom had flourished and is now wating for hubby to hang in the living room.  This certainly is the the biggest project I have ever attempted, I'm sure it won't be the last either.
