At the weekend I went with Pat to the Loy Krathong festival at the Buddhapadipa temple in Wimbledon. The centrepoint of the festival (which falls on a full moon in november) is the launching of small hand-made rafts equipped with candles and incense. The rafts (krathongs) are traditionally made from banana tree trunk, though ours were made from styrofoam adorned with thin paper leaves. Releasing the rafts is a way of letting go of anger and bad things, and of giving thanks to the river.

Portrait commissioned as a surprise Christmas gift for the steed's young rider. I don't really paint a lot of furry things, so it took me a while to get the technique right. Fairly pleased with the finished piece though. Acrylic on illustration board.
I've posted a little work-in-progress montage on my olde Facebook page.

Some sketches from my girlfriend and I's trip up to the Lake District last month. First bit of watercolouring for a good while.
I've got a few more of these, but unfortunately I'm having to use a different scanner, which seems to be incapable of producing a decent image.
