The hungry hummingbird

Never ones to turn down a challenge we were asked to step a little outside our comfort zone and to paint up a recently purchased Asgard bike shed with a wraparound wildflower meadow scene featuring a hummingbird. Okay then. Game on. 

First up we had to come up with a design they were happy with and it’s funny how sometimes things are easy to design but tricky to paint. That should probably be a memo to self. Next up – the fun part. With the shed disassembled we got to work throwing some paint around. After a few furious hours, we had to stop due to rain but when we got back to it it all seemed to fall slowly into place. Whack a fancy little hummingbird on there and some varnish and you’re good to go. Don’t you love it when a plan comes together?

Cheers

Fuego fire

In our ongoing series of superheroes doing mundane things here we have Fuego Fire – the Scottish Highlands answer to Human Torch from the Fantastic Four. Here we see him enjoying a much needed weekend off spent pottering around the Chelsea Flower Show. Up in Glasgow there isn’t much of that sort of thing so for Fuego it’s a rare treat. You might be wondering why Fuego would wear his uniform when having a weekend off in London and it’s because when he’s not in costume people regularly mistake him for Scottish actor and impressionist Stanley Baxter  This is never a problem when he’s in Scotland but anywhere else it’s just a nightmare…

It is A2 in size and made using Acrylic, pencil and oil pastel.

Cheers
