  • I started off painting orange and blue tones with acrylic paints


     I started my animal alphabet series of paintings by accident really. First I painted the cockerel, then a fox, then gulls followed by an elephant. Then, I realised...Doh! That's a C, F, G, E. Musical notes? Or the start of something alphabetastic? 

    So today I went back to the start, and painted an antelope. It's now sitting on my mantelpiece staring at me. It's at the point that I'm thinking I quite like it now... and if I did much more it might be a disaster, darling. Think I'm just going to take some photos, and then maybe play around on Photoshop adding some patterns and lettering. 

    Next stop...B is for Bear?
