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

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

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

Alice and The Cat Video Process – Art by Beatrice Ajayi

Alice & The Cat

Hi everyone, hope you all doing ok. I have been working on a variety of self directed projects. One of those projects I stumbled into. I decided to create some work in black and white sketchy style. It had been a while that I have done sketches as a focal point of my work. They are usually used as a stepping stool to colour work of late.

I sketched my first cutie and was inspire to create a series of Alice in wonderland sketchy drawings.
This is a link to the fourth in the series of work. You can find other process videos related to the Alice theme in my Youtube.com Channel under my name ‘Beatrice Ajayi’

You can view the process here: Alice & The Cat

Happy New Year – 2015

Happy new year from me for 2015. Hope you had an amazing time crossing over to a new year, and here’s to having a prosperous 2015.

The word stirring around in my head so far for the year is storytelling. Therefore I will be narrating, a lot. I will be elaborating on my pieces of art. New and some old. Disscusing my thoughts at the time of their creation and other themes I noticed. Months later upon looking back.

I am grateful for the year just passed, 2014. Many didn’t have a great year. A lot of heartbreaking stuff kicked of around the world. Trying to hold on to the aspect of love joy and hope is not easy for lots of people. But I hope to tell stories and reflections that add a little positive distraction to the viewer of my little cuties and their unique adventures. Spk soon. πŸ™‚
