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

 

Video Timelapse


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

‘Tungsten and Pip’ latest Children’s Book

Tungsten & Pip
Tungsten & Pip
Children’s book ‘Tungsten & Pip’

Hi everyone, I am so excited because I picked up another book of my children’s book collection today. I am planning to sell it at my sons school Christmas fair on the 27th of November.

It took a little time to create using new brushes on the procreate app. But I love it. It was an old story I wrote years ago. My kids love it. It would also make a great Christmas gift. A cute 6 X 6 inch size that fits into most bags of pressies.

Love you guys, later

P.s Have you started your seasonal shopping yet?

Hi everyone, I am so excited because I picked up my latest children’s book today. I am planning to sell it at my sons school Christmas fair.

It took a little time to create using new brushes on the procreate app. But I love it. I always get my kiddies involved in the process. They have a can do mindset. They are inspiring and my little heroes. It would also make a great Christmas gift. A cute 6 X 6 inch size that fits into most bags of pressies.

Love you guys, later

P.s Hoping to bring more of my goings on soon.

A Hundred Hugs from Dad

Hello, my latest instalment of children’s books is available now at www.blurb.com. It was inspired by my son who had a dream. It took some months to write, illustrate and upload. I have ordered a copy and can’t wait to get it. Will try and post pictures once it arrives.

imageA lot of different things have been going on. Ideas and juices have been flowing, and I am in that place of realising I can’t do it all. So as always I have to take a step back and asses what can be done and flow with it.

Last weekend I took in my ten pieces for the ‘Postcard’ exhibition at The Line Gallery in Linlithgow, west lothian, Scotland, in the town I grew up. The owners Gail and Elisabet have always been gracious to me, since my first time stumbling into their gallery many many years ago. I always love taking part in the exhibitions they hold. The open day of the exhibit is on the 3rd of October 2015, from 2pm to approx 4.30pm.

I have also been looking into creating some Christmas Greeting cards. I am trying to contain it to ten images. Still not sure how many i will print as cards yet, but I have 8 so far. You can find them attached to this post.

My Shop has a lot of new cutie pies too, I am always on the go. I enjoy being able to be creative and my little son and daughter really add to the inspirations.

Have a gorgeous Sunday. B

Sketching Ballerina’s – by Scottish Artist Beatrice Ajayi

I have really been enjoying sketching my little characters. I have so many it’s becoming ridiculous to find the time to colour them. I created this cutie pie today. Hope you love her. Will start thinking of colours that may suit her. Hope you are having a great week so far. πŸ™‚ image
