Paper mosaic experiments

Motion, paper mosaic and acrylic, approx. 480 x 370 mm. This is what happens when you experiment. You never quite know what you’re going to end up with. This one is slightly weird. I could have added more to it, but it had such a sense of motion to it that I stopped in case […]

Sunday Sketches – Balloons

Dreams of Balloons, acrylic, watercolour pencil and gel pen on illustration board, approx. 250 x 200 mm Still more experimenting with paints in line with yesterday’s post.

Dream

Dream, Acrylic, pen and gel pen on illustration board, approx. 200mm x 250mm. The experiment from the previous post? Now a completed painting. The scan seems to have obliterated most of the stars.

So I’ve taken a few days, reoriented, and given myself a new target, one I had set up before the challenge started, […]

So driven into the lounge with the airconditioner, I found myself doodling with my new pens again. I have a very limited pallette with these pens and the […]

Colour experiments – Green Fireworks

It has more in common with Embers, but was actually inspired by a piccy that I found right next to the piccy that inspired Fallen 😀 Green Fireworks, acrylic on board, approx. 300 x 300 mm. I was angry and continually distracted by the children […]

Afterwards

Afterwards, acrylic on board, approx. 300 x 300 mm. I’ve been meaning to attempt an Illustration Friday challenge for some time now. This week’s is ‘afterwards’ and after one busted attempt to fulfill it, I thought that yet again I would miss it. But late this afternoon I came up with a sudden simple idea […]

Colour experiments – Embers

I did my first acrylic painting in nearly ten years today. It’s not much, but it is finished. Embers, Acrylic on board, approx. 300 x 300 mm. Hmm, jpegs certainly can’t handle reds very well. This is rather more orange than it appears in this piccy. That and the poor lighting make for a pretty […]
