On the Easel

February 20, 2010

My poor little blog has gotten neglected of late.  I’m still working away on my drawing and painting but just a little slower at the moment – hence no completed pieces for a wee while.  Here are a couple of works in progress.

work in progress mixed media on watercolour paper 2010



  1. Julie, both of those pictures are superb. I know from bitter experience that drawing or painting portraits of young children is notoriously difficult. You’ve captured so much expression in the eyes too. Really well done 🙂

    • Thanks Darren, that’s really kind. It’s great to get such positive feedback from another artist. I just need to get a move on and finish them now!

  2. Aww Julie, Freya is looking amazing already. Oddly though, both Ian and I commented on first was the hair clips and how cleverly you have drawn them 🙂 Looking forward to following the progress… Nicki 🙂

    • Thank you Nicki, the little kitty clips are just adorable and Freya is such a little darling – it’s a complete joy to work from her picture.
