Another acrylic on board, happy with this! 🙂
I didn’t get short listed for the art prize I entered so I thought it called for me to paint something pink! 🙂
Well, flamingo’s seem to be the order of the day!
I’ve been working on some flamingo themed artwork and products and this collage is one of my first pieces. I am very pleased with him and he seems to be becoming a springboard for some other work. I especially like the way the foil paper I’ve used on his neck takes on the look of his feathers 🙂I am pleased to say there is beginning to be some flamingo related work for sale in my online shop, for example the writing paper set below. 🙂
Here’s the next stage of colour mixing for my large pattern and showing you how I mix the pinksFor this pale pink I wanted I’ve mixed with a large dollop of white, a very small amount of cadmium red and crimson.It’s very important to do it slowly as you cant go back, you just have to start again.For the darker pink I added more of each of the reds plus a touch of Ultra-marine I’ve found with practice I can mix any colour I Like 🙂
I’ve just completed an order for three of my Orchid Print Cushions which were featured on my blog a while ago as a print demo. My customer went away very pleased.
I’m glad I remembered to photograph them before they went to their new home!
