Untitled – Red Spiral

My latest painting finished at last. I absolutely love the colour combination I’ve used!
This piece has had several incarnations before achieving something I was pleased with.

Enjoy Building up Layers

If you do paint, enjoy building up layers. I have been learning this for a while. Things don’t always work straight away with art, paint over stuff you don’t like and highlight things you do like, use materials you are not used to and be prepared to gamble. Carry on building up until you have achieved all you can.

Studio Warming

As you may know I had a studio warming on Saturday to celebrate improvements to my studio. I didn’t take any photo’s as I was too busy enjoying it and talking to the many people who came. I did however get as many people as wanted to, to contribute to a piece of art to commemorate the occasion, big people and little people, and this was the result.

I had to do a bit of cutting and sticking to get it to fit in a frame that I had

and here it is finished and hanging on my studio wall. 🙂

Painted on recycled paper.

New Work

I’m very happy with how this piece is going.

I had the base of something I’d done before and carried on with from this morning. It’s changing shape very rapidly, but I’ll keep working until I’m happy.

This is what it looked like before I started work this morning, I’m much happier with the piece now.

This just goes to show that you don’t have to have any preconceived ideas of how a piece of work has to turn out!

New Painting

Finally, after all the improvement work going on in my studio, I am able to put my mind to some art work again. I’m mounting work that I am going to submit for a Norfolk exhibition. This is one of a pair.
It makes such a difference when the work is mounted and lovely and flat, it shows up all the detail and texture that makes the painting what it is! 🙂
