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!!👀
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.
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. 🙂
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. 🙂 B
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.
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.
A 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
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. 🙂
Hello on this dry Wednesday. I have had a busy day planning strategies for my Business. I think it will involve some detailed thinking. I really am blessed with how far I have been able to achieve dreams, but there is still some more dreaming left.
I have been doing my usual research looking and reading and video watching on the tube for teaching on reaching more people who would really appreciate my work. Every artist has to think of this so I don’t feel awkward talking about it. It’s all part of running the buisness.
Outside of all the above I have been sketching and painting on my iPad and pen on paper. This cat digital painting is entitled ‘Cat Balancing’. You can view the process here: Cat Balance Video
Evening. About to close my eyes for the day. Sharing the first if my #Travellers series digital painting entitled ‘The Caravan’ I love the sky. It was a lot of fun creating this piece. 🙂 nite nite
