I’m becoming more and more aware of the number of endangered species on our planet. this watercolour was inspired while on a pedalo on lake kournas when we were on holiday in crete a couple of years ago. i’ve decided this will be my next card to be printed and on sale soon! it will join the african crowned crane and the blue whale as almost all sea turtles are now sadly on the endangered species list. what we are doing to these creatures that causes their decline is tragic #localartist #illustration #watercolour #turtle #seaturtle #endangeredspecies #conservation #wildlife #sidney_seagull #oceanlife

New card just picked up from my printers! ‘archie’ the african crowned crane is taken from a watercolour i painted a couple of years ago. these birds are an endangered species which is incredibly sad because they are fabulous! #africancrownedcrane #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #endangeredspecies #bird #birds #localartist #sidney_seagull #watercolour #illustration #cards #humour #makesomeonesmile #greetingscards #greetings #brightenupsomeonesday

Aren’t dandelions amazing? i took two different photo aspects of them this morning on a walk and above those is my watercolour. beauty is in the eye of the beholder and this simple wildflower often called a ‘weed’ is beautiful in the eyes of this artist! #localartist #watercolour #dandelion #wildflower #hedgerow #countryside #flora #dandelionflower #paintingwithatwist #sidney_seagull

Seems such a long time ago since i painted my ‘rasta bear’ always makes me think of bob marley’s music and inspired by the sixties! #artistsoninstagram #illustration #watercolour #localartist #bear #rasta #bobmarley #reggae #reggaemusic #sidney_seagull

Had so much fun today creating this ‘wet felt painting’ of a beach scene! it’s a fascinating technique and i’m happy with my first ever attempt! being a ‘play-day’ at a friend’s house made it even more enjoyable! thank you @sajla9 for the delicious lunch too💞#wetfelting #learningsomethingnew #creativeplay #beachscene #beingcreative #artistsoninstagram #localartist #sidney_seagull #wool #art

I think this comes under the umbrella of being artistic and creative. i actually shortened some turquoise curtains for my bedroom this afternoon and with the cut off piece i cut out material to make an origami tote bag which i will line with the fabric on the right! keep watching for the result! haven’t used my sewing skills for years! #sewing #beingcreative #mymothertaughtme #makedoandmend #wastenotwantnot
