  1. Hi all,

    I just wanted to let you all know about some new artwork I've recently added to my online shop.  I have added some affordable original art that is a mixture of Mixed Media paintings, Watercolour paintings and some fineliner ink drawings. I'm finding that I'm more and more inspired by the natural properties of watercolour and some of my recent paintings are based on the movement of water and imaginary underwater worlds.  I also really enjoy drawing patterns and abstract shapes.

    The painting below is called 'Enchanted Garden' and features lovely watercolours and black fineliner details.  I've also include metallic watercolour highlights which gives certain areas of the painting lovely sparkling quality:

    Enchanted Garden is available here 

    The drawings below are mostly about an exploration of pattern and linework and how calming it is to draw in this way:

    'Slipstream I' below was inspired by the movement of water and depicted in an abstract way.  I especially enjoyed added the fine coloured pencil details.

    'Worthy' Black Art Print © Stacey-Ann Cole 2020

    'Worthy' is a painting I created with the intention of encouraging women and in particular, black women, to know and believe that they are worthy enough to take up space in this world and deserve all good things.  Yes there are challenges in life, and it is not all flowers and rainbows, but we all deserve love and respect and it starts within.  The original painting was created using watercolour paint and gouache.

    Happy Black Pound Day people!
     
    For those who don't know yet, Black Pound Day is a movement that empowers consumers to buy from black owned businesses.
     
    This movement is important because some black-owned businesses often get overlooked or ignored in their industries.
     
    Black Pound Day is a monthly positive reminder that there are some fabulous black-owned businesses out there whose owners are working really hard. Businesses who deserve some recognition and the opportunity to show how much quality they provide with their products and services.
     
    So we uplift and promote these businesses on this day and everyday thereafter, to ecourage a healthy economy and to make sure that money is circulating more equally.
