Doing a talk tomorrow in Pittsburgh partially about this stuff. It's an imitation parchment paper made in the 1920s by J Whatman. Originally made as a more readily available and affordable alternative to real parchment for house deeds, certificates etc it's become a sought after surface for botanical watercolor due to its fantastic qualities. Hard beaten linen rag, 3 times gelatine sized and simply beautiful. Unfortunately just as expensive if not slightly more expensive than real vellum nowadays as it's as rare as hen's teeth. Totally worth it. . #botanicalillustration #watercolour #handmade #handmadepaper #vintage #vintagepaper

Inktober 16 - Wild . Decided to do another where I searched the word in my creative writing blog and write a piece based off of it. . PARANOIA . Jagged edges dance in silhouette: A phantom beneath his feet. Binding to ankles with pointed nails. . Standing still, a burning chest, Gives leverage to climb. Long needles puncturing muscle. . Clinging to the spine, Up into the brain, it burrows: Slimy and warm. . He thinks it is him As it speaks. . Placing traps, barricades, and whispers, It paints allies in black. . Colour drips into sewage drains, Swift steps to the next routine. Looking both ways, Shadows lengthen In day and night. Black and white. . Smells drift away, Replaced by stale air. . Shadows begin to mutter, Just too quiet to understand. Low rumbling laughter. . Walking faster. Faster A dog barks: Incessant. Faster Cries down the alley. Faster A man yells. Faster A glint of metal. Faster Smell of iron. Faster Dripping. Faster . He screams. All goes black. . A gentle laugh, like marigold. Blind, he follows. Arms reaching through thick air, particles of water Clinging to arm hairs. . A flash of green, Grass pushes out. . Quickening pace, a path bordered in daisies. A gentle hint of sap pushes out the stale air. . Warmth on his back, A golden light seeps in. . Storefronts and houses All shimmer into view. . A field in reach Verdant with bushes, spring grass, wildflowers, And the marigold laughter. . Advancing, People are in sight, Friends and family. Earnest smiles, Almost laughter. A surprise party. . A pinch in his shoulder, A haunting tune: It darkens the edges of vision. . He claws at his spine: Ripping out wads of black. Dripping. . Feet pushing against ground, Running to meet them. . Waiting for him, They place soft palms on his trembling shoulders. . They never left. . It was never him. . #inktober2019 #inktober #watercolour #watercolor #art #drawing #ink #poem #poetry #shoes #shadow #paranoia #wild

If you want to see fields of wildflowers by the ocean, go to Cape Spear, Newfoundland Canada. Watercolours don't do them justice 💐 one of my favourite places on Earth. #newfoundland #capespear #watercolour #wildflowers #art #landscape

Just a causal date in their favourite spot. This tree is a really special for them. I’m not super proud of this so if it gets deleted you’ll know why. #suesocs #suesstuffs #suesrachel #suesluka #watercolour #ireallydontlikethis

I spotted this beautiful kelp Fibonacci spiral and was fixated. I would pull out my paints waiting for kids at school pick up, at the breakfast table just so I could try to capture the essence of the image. The contrast of colour, the curve and texture. My @etchr_lab sketch book is my new best friend. We go everywhere together!

Beyond this space is a conscious awareness. A space beyond labels. This is the space of the observer — the witness. Beyond this space is the rare person who knows peace. The rare person who's met their shadow self with acceptance that no longer need to project it into others. How are we with our shadows? How are we with our insecurities and ugly selves? Do we embrace them as much as the self we so love? How are we with the person we are not yet? Peace is the highest goal that's why peace is the hardest to attain, even if it is just free. I find it true that we can not love without peace, and there is no peace without love. To be honest, my heart is broken. Words and scenarios from last Tuesday night's group dinner keep repeating in my head. I have been rebuking questioning my own worth. This is a serious thing for me. And I know I am not the most easy to love, neither the most loving person these days, but I am actually feeling grateful and I enjoyed being loved by God through my mom, family and my real friends. Before, I would just usually spend time alone when I am dealing with issues of the heart. But God is still fixing my heart. He wants me to learn to trust and receive love even more from people who are graced to love me. So I am amazed by how God orchestrated things. He knew things will go that way, so He made sure I had fun the morning before and the morning after. And last night, I was finally able to feel all my emotions and had a good cry without having to explain anything to my mom. I was able to get enough sleep. And today, I am feeling so much better. If there's a rewind button, I would still want honesty and truthfulness that night no matter how much it'll break my heart, because the right people won't make us feel the need to over explain or over think. With the right people, submission doesn't feel like an obligation. But with the wrong people, it can still look like a safe space until it isn't anymore. We were supposed to be accountable to one another, but we all fall short of the glory of God and we'll all boil down to forgiveness. So as I rise above this in the next few days, I hope to understand God's peace even more deeply. ♥️
