Floral Abstract Doodle

Started the day trying to paint delicate flower petals with watercolour paints… Ended up going a bit crazy with ink and promarkers! It’s a bit crazy but I think there’s something pretty wild about it! It totally distracted me from carrying on trying to really learn how to paint all day though!

Sunday Ink Swishing

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!

Experimental Friday Artwork

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!

Today’s Experiment

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!

Abstract Nature Photography

I have started a new hush project for someone involving ghostly vibes and nature. I’ve started off a bit strong to be honest! So these practice photos wont make the cut, but there’s something about them I quite like. I’ve been obsessed with layering textures and photos on top of each other, something I used to do years ago, before photoshop was really any good. It almost feels like cheating doing it so easily on photoshop now, maybe that’s why I’m using so many layers, to try and make things more complicated for myself!
