Jenny Dunlop website....



Have any of you checked out my website? 



It's over on jennydunlop.co.uk

It's pretty new and I have a blog attached too. 
I've decided that I'm going to update the blog over there, keep everything in the one place. 
Seems like a good idea to me AND one less password for me to remember!

Pop on over, have a look around, leave a comment, would be lovely to hear from you.

Pink Horse


In the shop I'm always asked what other animals I have? 

 This is my horse print:


Isn't he a handsome chap? 
I tend to work from photographs I've taken myself or some that get passed to me from my friends!

 As with many of my prints I can change the background colour to suit the colourway of your room.

Other animals include a giraffe, cow, piglet and chickens!

Each print is slightly different with the addition of 
some sparkly twinkles!

This is me - Jenny.



Back in May I took some photos of a little red caravan I saw on my travels, I've since created a piece of art from it...

The Red Caravan...

When I returned to Tourtour in August I brought a print back with me in the hope that I might meet the lovely lady that owned it again, 
this is me trying to explain who I was!!










I think she liked it ;)

West Kirby Sketching

I know, I know, it's been a long time. A very long time.....

I've been enjoying the summer, French holidays and having my girls off school. 


West Kirby 
(unfinished)

I'm currently working on a new collection, based around the Wirral, Liverpool and Chester. They're very much a work in progress....

I've also been busy working on a couple of secret commissions, I'm sure when they have been delivered I'll give you a glimpse ­čśâ

6 hens

Ok, so we have established I'm not very good at posting 
a doodle a day.....

I could rhyme off a load of excuses but none of them are really good enough. We are all busy, I should be making more of an effort!

Mostly you will find me in Cowboys&Angels at the minute, helping out a lovely friend of mine.

Here he is - meet Jeffrey, he will be on display

Jeffrey  the Giraffe

He's rather dapper in his beautiful Liberty fabrics. 
Don't you think?

The Square




As you may or may not know, I LOVE France. 

Mostly I love the buildings, the blue sky, 
the food, the brocante's, the markets and the people...
 


Annie's Bar






Please don't forget about Open Studios next week. ;)

I'm also now working with numbers. 
Anyone that knows me well, knows I'm not a fan of numbers...


Naughty number ONE

Day 5 Seagull



Meet Malcolm.
Malcolm is a Seagull.
A while back he was looking in on a friend of mine whilst she was trying to work in her lovely office on the Waterfront ... 

I'm thinking he had his eye on her lunch box!

Day 4


May Day Bank Holiday, hurrah for long weekends...

Today I've been to the Fair in my local park, eaten ice cream and had dinner in Hickorys. I've also found time to add some colour to my Avalon School artwork.

I'll have limited edition prints available soon.

Here is a sneaky peek of my work in progress.

My first drawing...... *gulp






I sometimes find it difficult to put my thoughts into words, everything in my head is such a jumble of mixed up stuff!

My aim with this blog is to make myself post something everyday, a few words and a drawing or maybe a close up of something I happen to be working on that day.

 I hope you will enjoy the journey with me

Just for you xx
