Weekenders - Amber Alexander


Since I don't usually have time to get outfit posts out on the weekend I thought I could break up my usual posts with some beautiful artwork. Although in recent years I haven't felt very inspired to draw or paint, I used to! I should start again and I've tried but I want my skills to be up to where they were when I slowed down on the artwork and they just arn't. If you don't use it, you lose it! And I've lost it. I'm too impatient right now to start building up my skills again. Anyways...

I found these on etsy by Amber Alexander. I love watercolours and I love how you see real personality in all her beautiful paintings. It really brings them to life for me! Some even have a little story around them that I thought was super cute. Have a good sunday night everyone!

You can find these pretty pictures here.

"Sweetheart"

"Showgirl"
She dreamed of seeing her name up in lights.

"Les Mews"
(aka French Revolution Kitty)

"Baby Blue"

"Filly!"
and a very saucy seahorse she is.

All paintings by Amber Alexander.
