Oh gosh. My time here in the UK is not over yet, but this place has changed me somehow. There are things I didn’t know I needed to see, things I didn’t know I needed to feel – or experience. Maybe it’s just that it’s my first solo trip in so long, and after the pandemic… who knows. A friend told me recently that this trip sounds like it’s been a spiritual retreat, and that’s so accurate.
I made a promise to myself before I left that I would wander the streets of London and paint whatever inspired me. I did that, and it has been incredibly inspiring – for myself. And as an artist, to feel inspired again is everything. If you have any interest in seeing my process and you have about 4 minutes, check out this video 🙂
Here are a few I have done so far. Sigh, I must have some British blood in me (I think I actually do) because part of me has felt like coming home.
ALSO the next kids book I do feels like it should be watercolour! I had so much fun doing these.
