a coffee cup to colour

Shiny stainless steel coffee cup and jug in ink and watercolour

Free colouring page!

I had some fun with reflections on a very shiny coffee cup and jug, and thought you might like to play along.

Here is the black and white file for you to colour yourself. Just print it out on some nice paper and colour in the medium of your choice. You could try watercolours like mine, or coloured pencils, or felt tip pens.

I'd love to see your version. Share your completed painting on my Facebook page.

the perfect summer

"The Perfect Summer" - commissioned abstract painting

After all the little ones from the last week, I just had to share this big beauty.

This bold painting was commissioned by a couple of lovely friends of mine. They are building a new home and said they would like a large painting by me done now as they just start building, so that they can design their new interior and home decor around it. To say I felt flattered would be understatement of the year!

We spoke about what they had in mind, we looked at a number of completed paintings I had in my studio, we talked about colours and theme and then I sent them a few ideas I put together in photoshop. They choose one and then gave me free reign to do my thing and have some fun. The whole process was an absolute joy.

Thanks L & G
