All things shiny are attracting the magpie..this one has found a grandfather’s watch. Lots of shiny papers for this collage and sunshine to take the picture for reflection effect.

Two Rams in the mountains
These two rams seem very close like good friends. I had to think of a dark background for the paler one and a light background for the colourful one. So the mountains came handy as a dark contrast and the sky as a light contrast, all in one picture.
I did the collage of the two rams before the background so I could obtain the right result for the light and dark values
Two Toucans having a great conversation
These two creatures are having a great conversation. Their colourful brilliance is actually smartly designed camouflage for the rainforest allowing them to hide amongst the South American plants. I had great fun with colours and textures and quite the opposite effect is obtained…these two really stand out !
September beach girl
The last hot days are nearly over on the Riviera and I was inspired to create this mixed media painting to mark the passing of the season. This portrait was done with pastels,acrylics, ink and finally for the swim suit I used collage with my own prepared paper. The tattoo came as a final detail and was done with crayons.
