Hello! Lovely to see you! Here you will find random posts about living a creative life in country Australia. I am an illustrator. I create, take photos, faff, collect, teach. Watercolour, collage, colour, cheese, travel and dreaming are my faves. And Turkish delight. And cushions. And gardening. And op-shops...

WATERCOLOUR WASH, PHOTOS, FOUND AND FORAGED AND MORE #7VIGNETTES...


WATERCOLOUR WASH, 
PHOTOS, FOUND AND FORAGED
AND 
MORE #7VIGNETTES...

So this month, another 
#7 vignettes...another bout of taking pics of things arranged artistically, aesthetically pleasingly placed and snapped.
Another seven words to use as the starting point. Another week of serene for the screen, and TOTAL bedlam behind it!

This time, as a point of difference, I decided to use the old watercolour wash as the background, keep the images pared and simple and take the colour down a notch (compared to usual).Some words I only submitted one picture, others I did several.

Overall, was happy with them...some good images, but some weaker ones too.Not telling which!

For this series I also added a few live critters to some of the shots too... and lots of things found and foraged in my garden.Of course, the usual bits and bobs collected from around the traps too. 

And as per usual, did another series as well. Just because.Just because my head spins with ideas. And as per usual, the standard was incredibly high, masses of entries, and totally awesome.

The winner of April #7 Vignettes with a sublime series of pictures  was Lauren Storey, otherwise known as AUSTRAHLEE(LINK!) on Instagram. Check her feed out, it is stunning.  She is a Sydney based graphic designer...and her creative and well resolved, beautifully edited pictures make me want to weep.Really!

So..here they are,my watercolour wash vignettes for April 2014...enjoy!
