Even though I don’t own any real vintage teacups, I have a thing for them. They always look so lovely and delicate. When my sister lived back in Germany, she had so many and I enjoyed drinking coffee out of them when I lived in her flat for a bit two summers ago.
When I decided to paint teacups, I set out to make them realistic but it ended up to be more playful style. I had a lovely feedback when I posted the picture on Instagram, which I really appreciate. There is a part of me that thinks I should paint these teacups more carefully and detailed as you might see too that there is lack of meaningful details I usually create in my artwork. Hey, I can always paint more!
What do you think?
P.S. Before I got busy with the christmas commissions, I’ve painted several of sweet original paintings and they will be up on my shop for sale – once I get around to photographing them properly. I hope you are as excited as I am!
Last week, I somehow got fascinated by whales. After reading about them and looking at the photos online, I picked up a paintbrush and painted them.
Then I remembered the time when I was little, I accidentally watched 1956 film called Moby Dick, which was pretty scary at that time. Even though I was scared, I was also amazed by the beauty of whales.
I plan to continue painting these beautiful creatures. Seeing them in real life would be awesome.
I launched my new Christmas cards last week! I am so excited to be selling Christmas cards for the first time, for the past few years I’ve thought about selling but I didn’t have a courage to do so. To be honest, I won’t be selling this year if it weren’t for Aneurin and my family’s support.
Despite the fact that I’ve used up a lot of materials and time designing my Christmas cards (lots of trial and error), I priced them very affordable and I don’t want my customers to pay for expensive cards on the top of their to-buy Christmas shopping!
Four cards of different designs in one pack is only five pounds! You can also buy larger packs of 12 (£12), 20 (£18) or 40 cards (£32).
Each design is professionally printed on 250gsm gesso A6 card and comes with kraft envelope as well as protective cellophane sleeve, as always.
I love the addition of hand lettered “Merry Christmas” and bows – they give a lovely festive feel to my designs!
I love the film I used, Kodak Gold 200, which produced such lovely colours in the photos. Don’t you agree? I wish I could have used this film more in the past. Now I know! I need to pay a visit to the photo shop and buy more of them soon.
My most favourite shot is the close up horse (third last picture). He was magically beautiful in real life.
