My combined autumn and spring painting I did about four years ago. It’s quite big and I really felt free when I painted it. But like many other paintings it stuck in my studio. I enjoyed exploring the two entirely different styles and colours in this. I might find it and try and get it in an exhibition. X
Paint dots abstract on a tiny canvas. I used little glittery paint tubs with nozzles to build this up on a tiny canvas . It is not meant to signify anything. Instead it’s just an experiment. I wanted to see how much the paint would shrink as it dried. The paint is acrylic with added glitter/sparkles or a metallic effect. I don’t have a title for it.
Warning, I’ve made myself look very strange.
Sundays #bandofsketchers prompt was Unconscious. I have been unconscious a few times in my life and thankfully remember nothing about it. I decided to take a selfie with my eyes closed and hair dishevelled. The drawing is trying out the new style I’m playing with… Nose is too long because I had the sketchbook horizontal so it’s all elongated
When the milk bottles on my kitchen counter started to multiply I asked hubby to put them out for the milkman. He didn’t, so I asked again tonight (our house is directly on the street so if we put them out on a non delivery night they get knocked or kicked over). This time he did it, but not before I took this photo from above and processed it through the photodirector app on my phone. I think it makes an interesting picture. Daily chores can be fun!
When you’ve got a painting partly done it’s interesting to use a photograph app to play with it and see if there are things you can do to change it. Having done this I don’t think I will take it in this direction, but I may change things a bit. I need to have calm areas as well as jazzy patterns, otherwise I think it will be too much just an all over pattern.
A digital drawing or doodle. Started with a blue and yellow drawing, then I used photodirector to add glitches and texture. Once I had saved it I thought I could see a face so I sketched one in using purple then white blue and black.
Playing and dazzled
An age of experiment
Make love not war?
We know it’s bad for us
After drawing several studies of our model I decided to do a more abstract image. I split the paper into squares and tried to do different colours and felt pens and pencil crayons to make an interesting image. We were running out of time and I realise now I have left out the legs and chair legs of the artist in the background behind the model! I will have to add them!
I cheated and made this moon painting circular with an ellipse tool on my phone. In reality I can’t get the thing circular so I’m going to use an upturned mug! I’ve got several tiny paintings for sale later today. Eclectic art!
