Illustrating with just two colours

  I love the look of simple colour pallets,the use of just a few colours is such a nice way of allowing the subject to stand out in a quite way,with the following illustrations I used just paynes grey,blue , a touch of rose madder,green and highlights of white gouache.

I like to do doll illustration and art in my sketch book.

 I found a picture of a beautiful doll on the net and I just had to draw and paint her,the green colors on this doll  really appealed to me so much that I had to paint this.
 I will be posting more of my dolly portraits later.
Thanks for popping by xox

Books that inspire creativity,Danny Gregory and his books brilliant.

 Books are just something that I love and treasure,especially art books and craft type books,there is something special about a lazy free day when you can just lay back and browse a  beautiful book that inspires you to pick up a tool be it a pen, pencil,paint,whatever you use,its just wonderful to be so inspired that you cant wait to create.
 Every now again I will share some of my most loved books and today its Danny Gregory all the way,you will find him on you tube and his books on Amazon and at sketch book school,he is awesome and so inspiring!
 The books I am sharing are his books An Illustrated Journey and An Illustrated Life,I come back to these books all time,they are filled with page upon page of awesome inspiration,the pictures are just amazing and the reading is so much fun,these books are books that I take on holidays and just where ever I know I will be waiting and so they help time fly,I just love them.
