Clay Sculptures

So I have wanted to create sculptures of my characters for a while and have finally figured out a way to do it. In the image you will see two cute individuals I have managed to carve out carefully. I still need to tweak them slightly but I am immensely happy with them. I have so many ideas, but in order to reign it back slight I think I will create pieces in series or following my guide in library of already created characters. They will be one of apiece kinds. I am excited to make more. I will also do some for commissions possibly, will see how I feel about that. Other news coming on a new venture. So will keep you posted. Spk soon. 😊

A Year of Abstraction

Hi folks, I finally got round to posting my first post here on my website for 2019. It only took me til March to do it!!πŸ‘€

I have been absolutely loving creating abstract paintings over the last number of months.

I wanted to zoom into the worlds in the background of my brave and courageous characters.

So this year my focus is to create abstract landscapes.

While at uni I focused on abstraction and mark making. So it has been awesome to dive back in.

Mixed Media Collage Sketch 01

Hi! Everyone, the blog for today shows my latest approach to my work. I have been using Mixed Media collage techniques to bring about a loosening in my creative art process. I get hung up on the colours I should use. This approach allows me to work small scale which allows for creating multiple pieces very quickly and I am also able to assess my process more intimately, from above. You can see the process on my YouTube channel, link here,https://youtu.be/Wo_eHUpmMRM

 

I used the following tools:
Watercolour paper
Watercolour
Pencil hb
Tissue paper
Glue stick
Ink pen
Craft papers
Gesso
Scrap papers

Oil Painting

Oil painting this morning. Loving it. I want to start making my new big eyed beauties with the physical paint. I have tried mainly acrylic paint for years, but have realised that oil seems to give me the process I need in order to create my physical paint art. Look forward to some new work. Have a fun day. πŸ™‚

Art for Today-Video Time Lapse

Timelapse of Verity

Hi everyone, I have to begin with an apology because I have neglected my website of late, due to my time creating. I intend to change that. I am currently writing out a schedule to keep me right.

I decided this year I would focus mainly in physical painting more than my digital work. It has been a challenge working with my current medium. I can be impatient while waiting for paint to dry. I have been using water soluble oils. These tend to dry faster and give the layering effect I have tried to use with regards to acrylics. Technically you can layer with acrylics but I didn’t get there. I may go back as my skills improve.

 

This is the cute Ballerina called ‘Verity’ as suggested by a friend; I painted her today. I loved the sudden realisation I made that enable me to create her so quickly. Will be using same approach going forward.

I have other videos on my YouTube channel that show current physical paintings so check them out and subscribe too. Every little bit helps. I am having so much fun regardless.

 

I will ill speak to you soon. πŸ™‚ B
