Cat Balance – Beatrice Ajayi – Scottish Artist

Balancing Cat

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

Preening Cat – art by Beatrice Ajayi

Preening Cat

Morning folks, hope you are doing well, if not I am thinking if you. I have been flowing in and out of different self-led and self imposed projects. I think of a theme I have wanted to do for ages, and then do a series or collection to kick it out of my system. Not through loathing but to get a very much needed fix on cuteness of that particular kind. One of these much needed fixes have been cats. image

This kitty is called the ‘preening Cat’. It is one of my favourite so far from my cat series. I have noticed that some subjects within my work have been set aside to some extent in my mind, and I have come to realise that probably subconsciously I have not felt I had the ingredient in my process to create them in the way I viewed them mentally. Let’s just say cats I had produced in my past were of different substance and message and style. I love this current experience in making these exciting characters and have more to come.

A Brothers Care – art by Beatrice Ajayi – UK artist

A Brothers Care

Hi everyone it’s being a while. A lot going on. Moved location, new school for son and new nursery for daughter. But always my art is sustained however small. I would say generally I am a prolific creative. There is always something cooking in my thoughts. On of my recent cutie piece of artwork are these two. image

It is inspired by observation of my 4 year old boy and 3 year old girl. It is endearing and heroic, trust is obvious and care for one another is the message of the day. Speak soon ๐Ÿ™‚

I am starting to do my weird and wonderful pieces again. For each new image I want to do short poems or stories. I would really love to illustrate some kids stories I write soon. Doing poems or short stories will get me back into my writing interest again. I want to be able to tell my little ones some bedtime stories with pictures just from mummy. Nite nite

I have been working on more ideas of my wee characters and thought of creating paper dolls of them, as in already created prints or new specific paper dolls to be downloadable. This is my first one, what do you think?

What my current art is about – Beatrice Ajayi 18/06/13

Hi everyone, its been a week or two. I have been keeping myself busy as usual, then I had some access issues but all sorted now, hence my current posting. So one of the things I have been up to lately is thinking about my work and its relevance, I started looking at what I was putting out there. From the recent work posted for sale on my etsy store you will see that I am looking at the area of conservation.

I have always been really into wildlife. I was part of the YOC as a child, young ornithologist club, and still spot the birds till now. So I was also thinking of when I was a lot younger and what I thought of the wildlife and natural habitats around the world.

So this current collection which will probably go on for a while because I have a large list of research animals and natural objects I want to depict through a child’s eye. They are the future and I think they should have a say. It is a lot of fun creating these pieces. Definitely takes me back to my childhood. So check out my etsy shop for more of these cute nature kids. Nite nite
