Gesso relief No.2

This is my second finished gesso relief, you may remember it from a recent blog although it looked a little different then. I’m looking to experiment a lot more with this technique, but I’m very pleased with how this piece has turned out, now just to varnish it ๐Ÿ™‚

Hyacinth Relief

We had friends round the other day and I was bought a lovely bunch of spring flowers which included some beautiful hyacinths. I was inspired to use one for a relief.

When pressing this into the clay I wasn’t sure how it was going to come out.But I went for it anyway, the challenge is the driving force for me.Peeling back the clay is very satisfying. This is how it turned out.It still needs a bit of cleaning up but I’m very pleased! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Christmas Card

I spent yesterday designing this years Christmas card. Yes I know it’s early, but if I don’t do it now I’d get to the beginning of December and would be struggling for inspiration even perhaps motivation in the business of the time of year!

I am really pleased with it and look forward to having it on sale ๐Ÿ™‚

Greetings Cards

I’ve been enjoying this weeks card making before the last Fakenham Makers Market before the summer break. All made with original art, as you know, I do like hands on messy stuff!ย 

Sixty Four Squares – The beginning

For this piece I have planned the colour layout in my art journal. To the side I am putting the colours I am actually using for the painting.

As you can see, painting does not need to cost a lot. Here I’m using an old printed canvas I bought from a charity shop! I don’t know why I started with green, it just took my fancy, if you want to paint, just enjoy it, there are no rules!

Next, blue ๐Ÿ™‚

Next, red. If you look carefully you can see I where I put it in the wrong place. with a canvas or board, just wipe it off while it’s still wet. If it’s dried, paint over it. Don’t discard the painting because of a mistake, the layering of paint adds something to the finished piece! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

32 Triangles

Here is my main piece for Turn The Page artists book Fair. It was inspired by my painting I have now called ’32 Triangles’.

A limited edition of 32 Tulip fold books, each containing a miniature signed printย  of the original painting. (12 displayed at one time)

In the humidity of the exhibition the books opened slightly and showed their content.

A wonderful time was had by all at the exhibition which was held in the Forum, Norwich.ย
