Kitten Mischief

I was recently commissioned to create a painting to celebrate a little girl's 2nd Birthday. She loves the 3 Kittens Nursery Rhyme, so I came up with an illustration of 3 kittens getting up to mischief!  It is funny how things in your life can inspire your Art, a month ago I finished knitting this cardigan/jacket, the first time I'd knitted a garment for myself.  You'll see below how it has appeared in my illustration without even thinking about it.  Just glad the birds in my garden didn't unravel it!

So much time, effort and love goes into my Art that I thought you might enjoy a peek into my work in progress.

 Starting with traditional pen and pencil

 Gradually layering the watercolors

 The finished piece, Kitten Mischief, now also available as a Print in my Etsy Shop here

The excitement doesn't stop there as I have a VERY special Giveaway & collaboration running over on my Facebook Page.  Running until Friday morning (UK time).

Yes, there is even a colouring page I illustrated especially for your little ones to enjoy, giving you time to decide what you would choose if you won! You can also find this on my Facebook page. Just save to your computer, print & have fun!  Any questions just send me a note.
