It doesn’t get more spectacular, looking out over the mere as the sun set, changing from orange and blue to a peach and rosy purple. It was a long day but enjoyable.
It’s interesting that on Mars the sky is red with dust in the daytime, then the sun sets and the sky turns blue.
I live on the wrong side of the hill so that I don’t get to see sunsets very often. It was lovely to see this.
Bright poppies shine,
Glow with sun
Grow so red,
Buds stretch and burst.
Dehissance it might be called?
Or is that leaf fall?
Something like that,
There is a word…..
Turgid petals push out and open,
Colour shoots out
I found these two canvases tonight, they have modelling medium on them that I turned into rings or ripples on one and autumn leaves on the other. I’m still playing with colours and want to mute some of them and pick up the sculptural elements in them. They are a bit patchy but they are getting there.
Take an abstract doodle and reimagine it as a mug design.
I just sketched the black in quickly but I could see this printed on a mug. It’s brightly coloured, a real pop of pattern.
Somehow I’ve got to start getting my art work printed. I think that would be a way forward with my pictures. I’ve had a few enquiries from people recently.
I played with colours on my phone photo editor. By moving the sliders up and down I got lots of light fringes like oil on water. Just wondering what else I can do with it.
I love this old domed building in Stoke. I had thought it was a cinema, but apparently it was a co-operative shop before it closed down. I still think it was probably a cinema before that? It’s so grand. The white of the building and the browns and terracottas of the building on front of it make a good contrast. The hot was taken from the Spode Site car park in Eleanora Street, Stoke. The view is looking towards Hartshill and the D Road. It was taken on my phone one day last week.
A twisted spindle,
Red painted wall,
Chopped and mixed,
Add background smudges
Bend into shapes
Like pasta twists…
Multiply and flip
Into nine squares.
Then expand into four more.
