Twitching, itching and flicking ink all over the place again. Sunday’s art dinner is served! Hehe, I really need to get a plan together for next week, furlough madness will not win! At least The Great Pottery Throwdown is on in a bit, bloody love that show. Really hope to get some clay out when I have the space!
Had to keep on pushing this one today, it’s been a bit of a wrestle, and to be honest I’m still itching to rip it up. It’s not the nicest piece I’ve done today by a mile, but wanted to document it. There might be something in it that will pop up in another piece in the future!
I’ve got these new (well, new to me) Colourcraft Brusho powders that are insanely vibrant when activated with water, so really making a mess trying to work out how to use them properly!
Trying out some powdered paints today called Brusho. A very messy experiment but a ton of fun! Amazingly vibrant if used in moderation, they flow into each other easy, and keep going even when you think it’s stopped! Need more practice. Thank goodness Hobbycraft restocked on watercolour paper today, well stocked now for a few months!
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!
Thought I would use the side of the watercolour pallette that I never use today,. So browns, tan, heavy greens. Gave me an autumn vibe. Felt a bit melancholic in the end, so best get back to the vibrant colours while the winter is in full swing. At least all this paint is holding back the furlough insanity… I think!
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!!
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.
