Portrait of the week : Jon snow

Portrait of C4 journalist Jon Snow

Happy fullmoon.

Lockdown cabin fever has been getting to me. I have my ups and downs but it’s definitely important to be aware of what’s happening sooner than later. I’ve just finished my 2 week wobbly.

Thank you for the portrait of the week painting series to set me straight every Sunday. Today’s portrait of the week is of journalist Jon Snow. I definitely feel much saner after this painting session.
It’s a quick portrait before Sunday dinner. I’m not going to touch it anymore because I find I tend to overwork them.

Virtual gallery of my paintings in 2020

2020 has been an extremely challenging year for everyone. I took this year with all the time in lockdown and time between lockdowns to focus on my artwork. It has turned out to be the most prolific year of my career and the year is not over yet. This year has shown me what I can achieve when I set my mind to it and stay focused on the goal.
Hope you enjoy my virtual art gallery.
It ranges from my Chinese Zodiac animals, to abstracts, to portraits to chinoiserie blue and white paintings.

Covid-19 lockdown Pet portraits series : Hugo the sausage dog

Hugo the wire haired Dachshund

Hi everyone, today’s pet portrait is is of Hugo the sausage dog. He’s my friend’s dog and my god dog. He passed away recently so this drawing is in his memory.

Dogs and animals bring so much joy to me and I hope you have been enjoying this series. ๐Ÿถ

I’ve been drawing everyday in my sketchbook since lockdown and it has kept me sane and gives me a sense of accomplishment. The act of drawing is therapeutic and healing, similar to meditation as I have to focus and observe and be in the present for the duration of the drawing. Drawing calms me and declutters my mind.

I hope you will be inspired to start your own creative journey. #BulanCovid if you do so I can drop by to take a look

Stay home and stay creative ๐ŸŒน

Covid-19 lockdown pet portraits series: Bruno the Labrador

Bruno the Labrador

It’s been 53 days since lockdown. It’s hard to be positive during this challenging time with so much uncertainty in the world, so I decided early on to focus on my own mental health and my art instead which brings me so much joy.

Thank you my friends who have supported me financially with these Pet portrait commissions. It certainly has helped ๐Ÿ™
