I’m back. There’s painting, a new studio, plenty of workspace but I moved to the floor for this experimental phase, so plenty of floor space! I’m not quite sure what it is I will be painting today. I have a partial idea, and that’s what I’m going off. Either repainting over that blue canvas or a new one. Cover sheet out, all materials and tools. Let’s see where this goes.
The paints are back out! Its probably been a good month since I’ve wanted to do anything for myself with my work but I’m raring to experiment. Moving on from my frump and back into the creativity!
I’m still alive, brain still functions, lets make some art!
My Graduate Exhibition that I shall be in this May. The final showing of all the work over the year leading up to graduation. All my images are secret at present. Two weeks to prepare!
I now have an Etsy shop, feel free to check it out!
Sketchily painting over a pencil drawing. A little drawing for a zine submission. Although I really like it, and puts humour in to my work, the silly face was not on the final. The pencil lines give it that nice shaded finish that I like from my drawings and hope to incorporate more into my work.
On the concept, I fed some of my own experience into a doodle, and the idea of giving your heart as an item in glass case, special, but also fragile, to pass on. That it draws on a risk, putting it out there, giving it to someone and hoping it doesn’t return damaged or broken.
The various biscuits and cookies that I could make this coming Valentines Day. Chocolate, icing, sprinkles and pinkness. Lots of different heart shaped edibles for the Valentine’s Stall.
Making earrings to sell at Christmas stall. First time making! Shapes made from super sculpey oven bake clay, painted with acrylic, some then spray painted for the varnish affect (but taking a long time to dry!) Made stars, holly and cat stud earrings – shamelessly advertising myself inside the little organza bag! Got a few more things to produce, ready for the stall in about four hours.
So I have been doing the daily draw challenge but I haven’t being posting them daily. But this way i don’t clog up the blog with little daily doodles. In this post it’s day 10 – 14, day 15 will be posted a little later and will conclude this drawing experiment. Doesn’t feel like 15 days already!
Just to list the next 5 drawings:
DAY 10 – What are animals thinking?
DAY 11 – Heaven
DAY 12 – An overweight cow trying to gallop
DAY 13 – A porcupine snake, lemon party (u rated)
DAY 14 – Right hand drawing Vs Left hand drawing
(I’m right handed!)
For 15 days I’m participating in a drawing challenge with five other members from my course. We created a suggestion box and each day we pick out something new. I am already 5 days into that challenge, so will be posting those in one big feed. Drawing challenges are usually like daily doodles to keep the participant busy or can be more elaborate – but I’ve kept mine simple.
Here are the first 5 days:-
DAY 1 – An ant sunbathing on grain of rice sipping long tea
DAY 2 – Diagram of a Cocktail
DAY 3 – An Ice Prison
DAY 4 – Something yellow
DAY 5 – A source of Evil
And so far that’s it. Ideas are quick and the imagination raw, but it keeps things ticking even if the ideas are simple and silly.
