I've been having fun in between freelance jobs continuing to sketch and paint some of my favourite second-hand ceramic plates, teacups and saucers.

I like working in a sketchbook as I find the pressure is instantly removed to try and paint perfectly.  Instead there is a sense of freedom, an allowed margin for mistakes and imperfection, and an opportunity to experiment with different styles and mediums.

The more I paint, the more I want to continue painting and explore different styles.  So, I have a continous list in my head of objects to paint - and new ways to capture the subject manner.  So much little time....


  1. Beautiful work as always Lucy ... and I know what you mean about so little time! ...
