Sketches and Paintings from UK Trip

Finally posting pictures I did on my trip to the UK. My daughter and I had a wonderful time. The weather was beautiful. I painted the beach scene on site, sitting on one of the deck chairs.
Big Ben is in a hand made travel journal I did for the trip. (That's why all that stuff is poking out the top there) It was a very quick pen and ink because I did it while my Mother-in-law rested. She didn't rest as long as I thought she would so I painted it later. I'm glad I sketched it because for some reason my brain couldn't believe I was actually sitting on a bench in front of the aquarium staring at Big Ben.

Inspiration from Another Artist

Feeling in a bit of a rut I was looking online at some of my favorite blogs when I came across an inspiring idea at Take a piece of your favorite paper or artwork fiddle with it a bit and put it on a glass candle holder. I am so happy with the way it came out. I thought maybe the candle wouldn't show through the paper and was very delighted when it came through where the light shines through the forest. Thank you Violette for the inspiration and pick up I needed.
