Exhibits, Part II

I hope you haven't been waiting too anxiously for these, I managed to get distracted again.

First up, summer swifts. This was originally intended as the background for a steampunked dragonfly to got with the butterfly & moth, but it didn't work, so I inked in a few swifts for a nice simple summery canvas.

Next up some recycled art. This was originally a workshop piece. It's watered down acrylic sponged onto some basic cardstock. The stone....  yes, it's a stone. No, I know you thought it was something else,  stop sniggering. As I was saying; the stone is acrylic with salt texture, and it's all mounted on a  piece of scrap cardboard from a packing box.

Last, but not least, a pencil sketch inspired by one of the exercises on Lisa Wright's course.


  1. Gorgeous every one Nigel! Especially your "stone" ... which, snigger-inducing or not, is fantastically beautiful!

  2. Hi Nigel, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  3. I did snigger too... not that I meant to, but I couldn't help it... I do love the colours though, and the top painting is just fabulous... I really like it... fab...xx

  4. These are great! I am really drawn to the first one- the way the blues sweep with the birds- wonderful!
