New Ink Series

I’ve been jumping all over the place in subject matter for my painting, so I have decided to create a little series using ink and watercolour. The Ink is mainly through my Elegant Styler calligraphy pen, which creates lovely blue/green and magenta effects when water is applied to it. I have also used some watercolour here and there and the paper used is Canson 300gsm CP. 24cm x 32cm

The first painting is of the Australian Emu


and the second is of the Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle.


I am reasonably happy with both but have decided to start again on the eagle. He’ll be in my next post.


    • Hi Holly, Well, lots! I still liked this one, but was happy to learn from it. I am just about to post the new one, which I believe is more like our eagle. Thank you for your lovely comment! πŸ™‚

  1. They are so beautiful! I absolutely love the eagle from the curve of his beak to the way you have picked out the detailing on the feathers. Gorgeous.

    • Thanks so much! I am thinking I should reevaluate the dark and light areas and start again… you never know, we’ll see what happens, but in the meantime, thanks so much for your lovely comment!
