Two little Cats a wax carving for jewelry casting in pewter

Those of you who are familiar with my art and jewellery design know how much I love painting and designing anything to do with cats.

I have been working on a small wax carving for a new jewelry design, which will be cast into lead-free pewter, with spin casting, after the initial master copies have been cast in silver using Lost Wax casting.

 

The wax sculpture is nearing completion – it is rather detailed, and depicts two little sleeping cats entwined with their tails in a Celtic-style knot.

It measures 1 1/2 x 3/4 inches ( 3cm x 1.5 cm ) which is quite smaller than my last Cat jewellery design. This lovely delicate design will be made into brooches, pendants, chokers, keychains and even a bracelet.

Keep an eye on this blog for the finished product – you can subscribe to the left for updates !

A Love of Drawing in Detail….

mermaid-dolphin-painting

This is an older artwork that I recently found while tidying up my studio. It was done with a Rotring technical drawing pen and watercolour washes.

My first love was drawing in black and white – I love to do intricate detail as a form of meditation, and the Rotring pen provides a nice stable line with a dependable flow of pigment ink.

This lovely drawing depicts the greek myth of Poseidon and Amphitrite, a sea nymph. Poseidon had to persuade her to be his lover, and enlisted the help of Delphin the dolphin god to bring her to him. As a reward, Poseidon turned Delphin into the star constellation we see today as Delphinus.

It is available as a gorgeous archival print here.

Autumn Poetry & Inspiration

The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry’s cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.

Autumn Angel

The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.

Autumn Fairy

Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I’ll put a trinket on.

Another romantic Mermaid and Lover painting…

So the love affair continues.

My obsession with underwater romance, mermaids, all things watery and lyrical…

It is about 12 x 16 inches, my favourite paper: Ivory smooth Stonehenge. Subtle watercolour washes over and around the pencil outline sketches to begin with….

…..then, some nice dark Prussian blues, sky – tones of Ceruleun blues and touches of yellow ochre and flesh tints……

~ starting to bring the composition together in an expressive flow of colour and line : filling in detail, textures, motifs, plus highlights of pinks and aquas; even a drop of red wine or two!
