Basil by toeknuckles Basil by toeknuckles
Most of my paintings are under wraps right now, as they're for a project I can't talk too much about yet, but here's one I can actually share.

As many of you know, I'm currently obsessed with my garden. This started actually before we even moved and all i had was a little bunch of pots on the outdoor walkway area. I started this picture then, and left it almost finished for months and months.
Decided to finish it over Christmas, and now it's done!

My plan is to scale it down and actually use it on garden stakes and as a label on a herb jar. I intend to do a whole bunch of these, so I'll have a set of garden stakes for the garden and herb jars for dried herbs in the kitchen.

A break away from my standard digital stuff, but I needed to just do some more relaxed work. It was an awful lot of fun, more fun than the digital. I find it simple, but pleasing.

Also, the scan DESTROYED this, so here are my photos.

The original for sale too, for anybody interested.

Lovely art nouveau style, and the little frog among the leaves is just perfect!

Bit of a mix - watercolour, acrylics, ink and pen. I'm all over the shop!
