Wow, another birthday, another year for me. And I am feeling really good.
I’ve always wanted to see how some of my pictures would look if they were displayed properly, so this is my birthday present to myself. I used metallic ink pens to create these pictures but I also have a small collection of HB pencil and crayon art.
As my birthday fell on a Tuesday (yesterday) I will keep on celebrating until the weekend as I’m working my way through my Chocolate Brownie Birthday Cake.
I’m so glad that my children had the sense to buy ‘Happy Birthday ‘ candles, last year the heat from all candles was something else, I thought the smoke alarm would go off.
This is the only large scale picture I have done using water colour crayons as well as pencils. ‘IrieLocks’ is also the only picture in my collection which is on white card to make the colours more effective. This picture reminds me of my childhood love of ‘Colouring Books’ and the sheer enjoyment of completing various outlined drawings. ‘ IrieLocks’ is a version of ‘Locks Divine’
