I like gouache paintings, this one is really nice, and lovely color scheme. I like your 'Sculpts' too, they are wonderful.

hi stef - just had my first look at your blog - great stuff - particularly like the pencil pony sketch and the colours in this pic are great - reminiscent of those old railway posters.

Hi Stef!

This does have a faded enamel sign feeling... good atmosphere! Your Grandad must have been a fine character!

Great sketch man. Love the push of mediums and the drop shadow the middle value of the board. Very fun and in the vein of "Visual Development."
