here. You can view some of the book here. The following is a blurb explaining what the book is about:
Freehand examines around 200 sketches and illustrations by young contemporary artists, in each case highlighting and explaining the drawing techniques, qualities, and effects with extended captions, insightful tips, and practical advice. Four main categories unify the book: Principles, Drawing Media, Types of Drawing, and Subjects. Each sketch clearly indicates which principle is being exemplified, the media used, the subject of the drawing, and the type of drawing. A detailed category index at the front of the book lists each page where similar examples may be found, enabling the reader to easily identify and cross reference subjects that have been drawn in similar styles. Advice covers composition, shading, subjects, silhouettes, working with pencils, pen and ink, and charcoal. This helps the reader understand the way in which similar subjects and styles are executed by different artists, and also inspires them to use the tips in the book to build on their own unique talent.
The three illustrations of mine, that are featured are - Light as a Feather, Peony and Song, which are all available to buy in our etsy shop.

The first two prints are dedicated to my favourite band - I am a huge Mumford and Sons fan! I could listen to their music non stop for hours. I find their music very inspiring, the lyrics are deep and moving. I had the the privilege of seeing them perform live in Melbourne and I have been meaning to put together these prints for ages. Awake my soul is just a brilliant song and the other print is entitled Grace, which goes to the lyric: 'grace on her heart and flowers in her hair' ....beautiful.
The other two prints are pieces of work that have been hanging around my studio for awhile now and so I am glad I have finally committed them to paper.
These prints are for sale in our Etsy shop. Happy Friday to you all!

|That's me, Paula, at my Sweet William stall in Melbourne|
Tigs Macallan. They are of the Sweet William stall set up at Finders Keepers in Melbourne. Setting up a stall can be just as much fun (and hard work) as creating the art work! I love it and I am so happy with these shots. You can view more shots over on my flickr stream here.

I have been very inspired by all the bright colours and graphic shapes that are around at the moment. This new work has come about after playing around with new patterns, textures and colours. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed creating them! An art print is a very quick and easy way of updating a look anywhere in your home, so go ahead and put some colour on your walls! These prints are available to buy in our etsy shop, here.
