About Me

Hello :) My name is Becky - welcome to my blog! I love to be creative and arty, and The Crafty Corner is my new "Art Home"! I like to do a variety of arty activities. I do watercolour painting, oil painting, canvasses, acrylic painting, oil pastel work and mixed media work. Art is my way of expressing who i am and what i'm about. I love to try out new things too! Hope you enjoy what you see, and welcome to the journey!

I've got that floral feeling...

I LOVE drawing and sketching flowers. I love the way you can interpret them exactly how you see them, and i love the freedom you have to mix and blend colours. The picture that is shaded in pencil is of a flower that featured heavily in my Art GCSE. I used that particular flower alot, and used all different medias to present it - collage, papier mache, oil pastel - it has been my 'signature' sketch for a good few years now. 
 I think flowers are lovely to draw and i love it when i go through a 'floral stage' :)

"Under the sea"

This happy little chappy was created on the 17th of February, designed for children and the simple minded! I enjoyed painting him, although he didn't turn out quite the colour i had hoped he would - i think he wears it well! It was nice to paint something that had nice easy lines, simple shapes and a fun, free-spirited theme.

I painted this canvas on the 17th Feb 2011. I absolutely love butterflies and love to draw and paint them. I wanted to create a simple canvas, using lovely pastel colours, that speaks for itself really.
Thoroughly enjoyed doing this, and I'm pleased with the outcome :)
