Everyone likes to see their name on something! A splendid gift (usually but not always for a child) is a name done in calligraphy in a way that is fitting for the person. Here's a couple I've really enjoyed doing this year:
Both special for different reasons. Sophie is my first great niece (how very a-g-i-n-g!) and lives down in Devon and will definitely have a seaside filled childhood.
Zinedine (what a fab name!) was a commissioned piece from his grand parents here on Anglesey - a charming couple both of whom are very arty, and told me about the Fine Art courses available at Bangor university - a week later I was enrolled, and I'm just coming to the end of my first term - it's been great!
I liked the challenge of making this piece as dragonish as I liked - he's done in watercolour and watercolour pencils, plus a touch of gold paint.
