Honeymoon Lake, Vancouver BC

I finally bought some new promarker pens and finished this drawing I drew of Honeymoon Lake.  I didn’t have the right greens and luckily ‘moss green’ and ‘pine green’ came to the rescue so that I could colour my drawing on a chilly Saturday night in Canberra listening to Bryan Ferry croon….

The views which inspired me to draw…


The pencil drawing…

The result…I know I still have lots to learn re: perspective, sight lines, differentiation between trees/leaves etc but its such a relaxing activity and gives me a break from the computer!

Petite blue porcelain violas

In February this year, our local Canberra CityNews garderner, Cedric Bryant alerted readers to a new breed of violas ready in time for Autumn saying ‘…new Viola Blue Porcelain with petite, clear, true blue and creamy-white flowers is a must…’.  Well, of course moi had to go rushing to her nearest nursery after she got back from Seattle and Rodney’s ordered me a tray of these unheard violas!  Well…look at my first viola:

In hanging baskets outside our bedroom and in terracotta, blue/white pots near the kitchen and I’m loving them!


Now onto the next project…to buy or not to buy delft wallpaper with porcelain plates! Can you believe it!

Or maybe the doona cover…it does come in blue too…or will Adam do a major runner 😉
