A Secret Rest, my new waytercolor

This time I took a deep breath, found some courage and decided to try: I submitted this painting for participating to the 2015 edition of Spectrum Fantastic Art.

Anyway, I enjoyed painting it, she is the lady of the manor taking a rest from her daily duties, sitting on the lakeside beneath her castle.
While painting I probably was thinking to the Urquhart Castle, which I visited in 2012: it was very inspiring...

You can find it on my Zazzle shop as a poster

Extra fast delivery: a celtic knot ordered and drawn!

This is a design I made for a customer who ordered it 16 hours ago: it is completely hand drawn by me and I created the knot weaving as well.

A new year: I am open for commissions!

After taking a short holiday, eating some pandoro and Christmas cakes, and being at home looking after my daughter, I am ready to start a new year full of colors, paintings and illustrations!

I had a very busy November and December, illustrating four children's books in only 40 days... but I did it without missing my delivery dates :-)

I spent these few January weeks finishing my last watercolor (you'll see it in a few days, as soon as I take the photos): I am thinking to use it to do my first video tutorial about watercolor technique...

Anyway it is finished now and I am open for commissions again: if you wish the book you wrote for your children to be illustrated, want a portrait of your dog, a custom tatto or a fantasy painting depicting your girlfriend, just contact me at

Wishing everybody a happy new year

This illustration is a custom coat of arms I did for a client....
