Well we have settled in our new home. I thought it quite apt to do a cut to celebrate home and what better than the swallows style birds and scrolls. They aren't exactly swallows or humming birds but I hope you can see the sentiment. They also had to hurry along to see if they worked as an actual tattoo design which is something that I hope to add pictures of in the future.

Starting with some style and shaping thoughts.

Starting to try and work the heart into the shapes of the birds using circles.

A colour sketch to see if I have the colours in the right places and which work best.

Final drawing onto the block before the other colours are cut and then printed...

  1. I love the very first sketch, with the foliage in their beaks. It must be ace to be able to draw well :-)
