{Spring} Blooms

I shot these photos this morning in my garden. I love the fresh morning air and the peaceful tranquility in the hours when the spring sun begins to rise - before the world wakes up. I've recently made a habit of drinking my first cup of tea outside... a perfect start to the day!

I wish I knew the names of these flowers... I'll have to find out!

{Fendi SS11} Working girl...

Well, I'm employed!!! I don't want to reveal too much about my career-life on this blog, which is more of my art/fashion/lifestyle outlet, but what I will say is that the role is amazing and i'm literally over the moon! :)

What I would give to add this Fendi SS11 trouser suit to my working wardrobe!!!

{la donna} oil painting

My inspiration for this painting derived from an advert for fake-tan, or shampoo, I can't quite remember! While I sketch women quite often, this was the first time I tackled the human form using oil paints...

My main focus was on the light & shadow of the skin and hair, and it made a refreshing change from my usual fashion illustration sketches and abstract-expressionist oil paintings (the latter of which has fallen by the wayside of late... I blame the job-hunt!).
