Blog (update)…

In the studio today


Hi everyone, lots happening in the studio this week, I have taken the plunge and signed up for Louise Fletcher’s 8 day free painting course – an amazing abstract artist who I’m sure will be so inspiring. Can’t wait!

On the easel this week will be a coloured pencil commission of a beautiful fox who has been visiting a friend’s garden. Looking forward to starting that one.
Isn’t she gorgeous!

Also new paintings to be added to my Etsy shop – here’s a sneak preview of just two of them. Pop over and take a look.

Hope everyone has been having a creative week. Do share your projects – love to see what everyone is working on. 😊


Finally finished my new canvas…….

Hi everyone,

My new ‘Butterfly Meadow’ mixed media canvas is finally finished and for sale in my Etsy shop. This piece was one of those that I kept returning to, adding a bit more, tweaking here and there – the usual difficult decision of when is a painting finally finished- but it’s done! I’m happy with it – reminds me of long-awaited summer days. It’s been with me a while this one, so slightly difficult to part with but hope it finds a good home and brings someone pleasure and brightens their space.

New Range – ‘Pets in Pullovers’

Hi everyone,

Some little greetings cards on the drawing board today. I’m excited to introduce my new range ‘Pets in Pullovers’ – mini watercolour sketches of dog breeds in colourful jumpers. Pop over to my Etsy shop for the full range available so far.

On another note, I’ve been really enjoying catching up with a new favourite on YouTube ‘The Unexpected Gypsy’ a very talented artist who is so relaxing to watch and listen to and who advocates spending a few moments each day painting and writing in her art journal. So good for mental health and improving your art by just being able to express yourself and experiment with no rules! Thank you Wendy for your inspiration and the beautiful music too. Think I might be ordering a new sketchbook to have a go – might start up a regular art journal session if anyone fancies journaling along with me? Let me know.

Have a good week everyone and catch up soon. X

Hello everyone – welcome to my updated website and blog pages where I’d like to share with you regular updates on what’s happening at Angela Melanie Art, projects I’m currently working on, what events are coming up that you might be interested in, perhaps the odd tutorial but mainly just a general ramble about my art journey and what’s on my drawing board and craft table.

I hope you will find some inspiration for your own projects and that you will join me here for a little while to enjoy a few moments away from the ‘real world’ and share a love of art and craft.

I have a few fun projects to share with you shortly – so do pop by and leave a comment or feel free to ask a question.

See you soon and thanks for stopping by.
