Spring is here and the flowers are blossoming. Pen drawing of Iris flower.
I almost forgot to draw these beautiful orchids. I had to Google them to remember the name. I call them cup orchids but they are actually Paphiopedilum, often called the Venus slipper. They look more like cups than slippers to me 🤭
It was a slow start today but I eventually attempted another oil pastel botanical drawing. Looks more of a blob than anything. Argggh. Exhale and let it go.

Today I experimented with some oil pastels. The unfortunate thing was that the red pastel which was the main colour was dried out but I mixed it with some dry pastels. I managed to solve the missing red colour issue by combining the dry and oil pastels.

They bloom during this time of the year and is a symbol of love and romance.
It’s not everyday that I get asked to paint something for a newborn.
I completed my first baby commission a couple of months ago for my best friend’s daughter. I was so excited to paint something for her but was a bit apprehensive as to what but I’m super happy with the end results. 🐀🐭🐀

I love the natural world and going for hikes in our tropical rainforest.
As an artist, I find much of my inspiration from nature.
Our rainforests are one of the oldest in the world and it is home to many species of plants, birds, insects and wildlife.
This trail is a city green lung which is such a gem and is something I am grateful to have as our rainforests are fast disappearing.
Follow me into the forest and fall in love with our jungle with me 💚
