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 🙂
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! 🙂
I have been in the process of doing this painting for a while and revisited it yesterday.
I had bought some new paint and added a very dark hookers green and a cyan to the centre circular shape. One of the things I’ve been learning is that sometimes taking away is as valuable as adding. The centre of the painting was drawing me to it and so this is what I did! And wow, it all sprung to life and I love all the colours shining though the top layer of paint! So here is ‘As Yet Untitled’ (I thought of a name as I was painting but it has faded away just at the moment!) 🙂
Another painting/collage made for a specific frame. I’m very happy with this one too! 🙂
I don’t usually do blue, but I’ve done a couple recently. This one is Untitled – blue line Acrylic and collage on board.
Lots happening in my studio, the next work to show you is this acrylic and collage on board – Untitled (blue line) 30 x 30 cm
These two pieces of work I am very pleased with I have enter for the art prize at The Holt Festival. I’m quite excited, confident and nervous about it, but what ever happens I’m happy with my work. 🙂
