January Meetings

January is supposed to be the quiet part of the year for a designer maker, Christmas has passed and all the making, late nights, packing and posting parcels to keep up with demand are supposed to vanish for a short time.  Then there is a build up the new designs are created for coming the seasons. 

It hasn't stopped yet at Lizzes Beautiful Art..we have had: new orders, shop requests, custom orders, new websites to join and some great meetings with some amazing companies. 
Allium Seed Head using the gouache relief painting technique.

Blogging was the one thing this year that I wanted to improve, new posts, keeping you all up to date with how the company is going, new designs, more painting and more posts with tutorials. I hope to keep this please be patient whilst I juggle a little bit more!

Happy Monday

All is well and I have been tidying the studio up with the plan to create more lovely pieces of artwork. I hope to share more artwork with you this year and share some techniques that I love to use.

In the mean time I have been doodling and experimenting with some watercolour paper, a wet brush and a Black Tombow pen!

Have a lovely week!

Kew Gardens Illuminations Trail.

For those that didn't get a chance to walk the Illuminated Trail at Kew Gardens here are a few pictures from our trail.

The trail was better if you had children as there were some interesting story tellers along the way and interactive bits for the children.

Musical trees with changing lights.

Ring of fire which was in the same pattern as the seeds in a sunflower head.

The amazing flower light in the lily house reflecting on the lily pool.

The palm house at the end of the trail was turned into the final illumination display.

This year feels like a year of love..I'm not sure why but 2014 suggests colours of reds, pinks and warm pastels...lets see! Here is a sneak preview of my plans this year.

I hope that you are all well and have had good festivities over the holiday break.
