Aside from all things beauty related I have a huge passion for art. This is something that I have touched upon briefly on A Little Boat Sailing before and has been something that I have wanted to feature again. In the past I had my very own illustration tab yet that has long since gone, I’d like to update it soon and include some more recent work. I have always been an admirer of other peoples work and often find myself losing hours online browsing black and white pencil sketches, watercolour landscapes and whimsical patterns and fonts.
It has been a little while since I dug out my own pencils and watercolours yet this hasn’t stopped me admiring the talent of other artists that are out there. For me I often find new artists through instagram where I then spend the next twenty minutes stalking their feed. The most recent artist I have stumbled upon is Ellen McCrimmon who creates the most beautiful watercolour illustrations alongside charcoal and pencil drawings. Around a week ago I entered Ellen’s giveaway for a chance to win a print of my choice (it was always going to be the two whales because they are my favourite animal), where low and behold I was lucky enough to be picked as one of the winners; thank you so much Ellen!
Just yesterday my little package from Ellen arrived and it was filled with the most beautiful prints I ever did see. The prints are A5 in size and will look perfect on my wall once my bedroom is decorated in a few week’s time. She very kindly sent me a print with a majestical seahorse on as well as my print of choice; the two stunning whales. Alongside this I also received two mini prints of a bear and fox which are just as delightful; I cannot wait to pop them up on display soon.
I really wanted to share these beautiful pieces of artwork with you all today as they were simply too gorgeous not to. It is always such a pleasure to discover new artists, especially when they are as nice as Ellen.
