Finding my style
It is a funny feeling to finally feel like I have found my art 'style'. I never really thought I would be one to stick with one particular style as I enjoy working in so many different ways and different mediums but this year I have started to feel like I've settled into a particular style that my customers and visitors of my studio are starting to know me for and are enjoying.
Sales of my card prints and of my originals in this 'style' are proving popular too. The feedback I keep getting is so wonderful it gives me a real boost every time I hear the lovely comments.
I was asked to describe the way I work for a write up piece that someone recently did on me. I would say my style is a modern twist on 'pen & wash' I lay down free flowing watercolours with not too much precision before later applying a layer of figurative fine liners.
I began with florals but have ventured into animals and scenery now too. I'm really looking forward to exploring this way of working further in 2020.
