And I spose that means we're back to school..

Well, since thursday I am officially back at school - the reason why I haven't been able to do any posts! It's so bizarre to be almost at the top of the school and to be considered as a scary year level - I can't seem to fathom how the year 7's could possibly look at me and be scared! I could blend in with the year 7s, what with me being just about as small (haha). Okay, maybe not exactly but still, I probably could blend in a little.. :)

So, just an update on my art that I have planned for this term/semester so far .. :)
Bea and another friend of mine from school will be my models/'muses' if you like and my folio will be inspired by fairytales - particularly Disney movies and Annie Leibovitz's amazing photography! I have already decorated a double spread of my Art workbook with Annie Leibovitz's photos such as the photo I posted last time of Snow White, plus a couple of photos from the Vogue shoot of the Wizard of Oz featuring Keira Knightley and then the photos inspired by Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella :)
So, the idea is that the girls will let me dress them/make them up to look like fairytale princesses and hopefully we'll find a prince :)

The picture above is my very first watercolour I EVER did - and it turned out quite well, particularly for a first official painting! I think this first painting started a bit of a chain reactions within my art - fashion and Vogue seem to have become my main source of inspiration since then :) Plus, Natalia Vodianova looks gorgeous in this shoot!
