I have been relaxing into doing some new paintings recently, being lead by my own inspirations, applying paint to the canvas and seeing what happens next.
This painting is not finished so I’ll just show you sections 🙂 As you can see there is collage and drawing involved as well. Those of you who were following my still life progress, don’t worry, it is still on the easel! 🙂
I have been itching for quite a while to do some painting. It has been over shadowed by admin, trying to earn money and making things to sell. But my itch has won and to my greatest of pleasure I have set myself up a still life!
Another problem I think is that I’ve always used student quality acrylics and at last I have bought myself a trial set of Golden acrylics and am amazed at the amount of pigment in them and the brightness of colours! Scale and proportion are difficult but I think I’ve made a good start 🙂
I’ve been exploring new Ideas for products to sell on my craft stall and in my Etsy shop. I’ve come up with a way of using the textiles that I love, hand printed and recycled, in a very creative way, collectors dolls 🙂
Meet Clarissa and Morwena.Morwena is now available to buy for £18.00 and soon will be listed in my Etsy shop!
I decided as the weather is changing and it’s soon going to be cold that I would brighten my studio up so that it is more inviting during the bad weather. I haven’t really thought about it until now and I want to cheer it up.
I sealed up where the windows were leaking last winter and now, as you can see they need a coat of paint. Looking better already.Now they need a nice top coat so I’m off to choose a colour! 🙂
