Furlough Insanity Level 10

Ok, must stay calm, running out of my favourite pink paint (who would have thought pink would be an obsessive colour), down to my last 15 sheets of watercolour paper, and there’s no sign of furlough ending any time soon. Just going to put my head between my knees and rock for a while.

There maybe be an ink shortage in the foreseeable future too… Waaaagghhhh!

The Art Shop is OPEN!

Ahhh, it’s been a long time coming, I have avoided putting my work up for sale for ages due to confidence, not quite getting the photos right, being unhappy with the finished pieces… But this time in isolation has given me a lot of time to work on my ‘f#ck it!’ attitude and quite simply if you don’t try new things you never know what will come out of it! Check out my shop HERE! Hope you enjoy my work!

I created this Frankenstein patchwork from three acrylic paintings cut up and sewn back together by metal wire. Absolutely loved working on this style, though it was a bit tough on the fingers!!

This one is watercolour and ink on watercolour paper. Always find myself a bit heavy handed with the watercolours, but I love the vibrancy!

I still absolutely love cartooning. I did start another site for the cartoons but they are still me so deserve to stand with the other works of art! This is pen on red card.

Let me know what you think! If you are interested in helping a starving artist by buying one please message me HERE or check out the contact form on the contact page and shop page.

It’s On Random

One of those days when you walk into your room to get a bit of paper, stick on a CD (Dog Man Star by Suede) and get taken over by the paint. I haven’t picked up a paintbrush abstractly since I started my degree, but this week I decided that the first year of that was enough so I guess that part of my brain has stopped and allowed a bit more imagination and experimentation in. I think I went into it planning bright colours, but I always get distracted by the reds and blacks, always. Anyway, none of these are finished, well, I don’t think so, they’ve not told me yet! But thought I’d document the randomness again. Always end up working on more than one thing, not usually this small though.
