Sunday picks

What a weekend! I went to the Harry Potter Exhibition at the Powerhouse museum. If you're a Harry Potter nutter just like me, it's something that you can not miss. It brought back so many memories and just made me wish there were more films... because 8 wasn't enough. My fave part was seeing all the costumes - especially Sirius' (my favourite character) and also the Quidditch board game. They seriously need to come out with that one for real.

Afterwards we went to get the new iPhone 4S (Hello Siri!) and watched Breaking Dawn Part 1 (they really didn't need two films for this book - I mean come on, I've watched films that have had a lot more things happen in them than that).

Here are my Sunday picks:

Favourite boots: (urbanog)

Favourite dress: Strawberry Iced Tea Dress (ModCloth)

Favourite bike: (Mojo Bike) - I'm going to get one of these one day

Favourite accessory: Disney Couture Minnie x Mawi charm bracelet (miijo)

The weather was hot, sausages and kebabs were on the barbie, everyone sat on fold-out chairs or a blanket, the girls made sangria, the boys kicked around a soccer ball. I love Summer Sunday BBQs.

Favourite Etsy store: jolinne - sweet illustrations

Digital Painting Progress

I've been doing more digital painting lately, for my own practice and enjoyment rather than churning out artwork to sell and thought it might be interesting to show the steps involved.

Here is a pirate character I quickly sketched up and the steps from rough sketch, clean sketch, colour, shadows and highlights, to finish with texture and adjustment of colour.

Sunday Picks

My body is in a bit of pain. I did 2 huge interval workouts yesterday. It felt really good afterwards, but I'm paying for it today.
I've also wrapped all my Christmas presents early! I've wrapped the presents, but the tree isn't up yet. I'm leaving that for another weekend. But there ain't many free weekends left until Christmas! So excited!

Here are my Sunday picks:

Favourite song: Paradise by Coldplay

Favourite photo: Life on this earth is precious.

Favourite video: Forgetting Sarah Marshall bloopers. Jason Segel's laugh makes me laugh!

Favourite holiday destination: Antarctica - wouldn't that just be amazing?

Favourite craving: (Seriously Happy Meal)

Random sketching

I really need to sketch more, here are some random sketches that were hiding in my sketchbook. Thought I'd share.

Can you recognize who these characters are?

Sunday Picks

It's been a really hot day today and I didn't want to waste it staying indoors. But I couldn't last long under the sun either. So we just went to Flower Power and bought some new plants for our balcony. It's been something that was long overdue. And I know we only just got them, but I do feel like I have a bit of a green thumb! Can you guys tell me what plants are good 'beginner' plants?

Here are my Sunday picks:

Favourite book: Bossypants by Tina Fey

Favourite song: Can You Feel The Love Tonight by Elton John (to celebrate the release of The Lion King on DVD - my favourite movie of all time)

Favourite bag: Bohdana Satchel from Forever New

Favourite home decor: (Pottery Barn)

Favourite kids item: Little Lamb Plate by Jane Jenni (Urbanbaby) - doesn't stop me from buying one for myself!

Do you have a favourite?

Have a beautiful week!
