Back to miniature painting

Dragon on silk. 25,5 x 21 cm

Palace on silk. 26 x 21 cm
These are my first miniatures on silk for some time. I've been waiting for new supplies of materials from India which have now arrived! I am very happy to be back to Indian themes but now, as with the dragon, I want to adapt the style to other of my designs that I have been working on for the last two years. I have been working mainly in coloured pencils during this time.

Drawings of Cats




These drawings are done in colour pencils and white gouache. I have been working on these drawings of cats with the intention of putting them into larger pieces of work, including them in scenery (foliage, gardens etc. I haven't been painting miniatures for a while but I hope to start again soon, when my new supplies of materials arrive from India. During this time I have been thinking of ways of adapting the technique of Indian miniatures to other subjects that I am interested in ( dragons, insects, cats, imaginary plants and flowers etc.)
