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! 🙂
Here is a few small things that I’ve been experimenting with lately. A bout of flu has hindered me really doing much and when you have a break from work, it does take a while to get back into the swing of things. 🙂
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 🙂
