Here are some new pieces I've been working on.
The top three are difficult to see because of a glare-sorry.
And here are some close ups.
Bye for now.

Sorry for the long absence, its been a while since my last post. 
There is a new group exhibition which I wanted to let you know about-

Here are some pictures-
These two are mine.

I will be at the gallery this Saturday from 11-1:30 pm if you are in the area and fancy saying hello.
Bye for now.

New Abstracts

Here are some new abstract paintings-acrylics on watercolour paper. I thought I would experiment with a limited palette of neutrals with a punch of colour here and there. Not sure if they are finished or not...

Bye for now.

The Start of Something New...

I haven't had much of a chance to get in the studio lately-so was itching to play with paints and colour. Here are six abstract paintings I did last night-acrylics on watercolour paper.
They are not finished- still loads more layers to come.
Bye for now.

Hello March!

Here are some sketches I did while on half-term holiday recently.
Materials-magazine pages, acrylic markers and coloured pens.
Bye for now.

WIP Wednesday 7

Here is another piece I'm working on-
This is the original image from a magazine. 
 Once it was transfered onto the canvas the image was reversed.
The background is a combination of stencil patterns using acrylic paints.
I also used acrylic markers on the model's hair and dress.
I felt the painting needed more excitement in the background-I added black lines and used dollies to stencil a pattern. Butterflies cut from magazines were added to her hair and skeleton leaves were used as earrings. I will let this dry and see what else it needs...
Bye for now.

WIP Wednesday 6

Here is an update on last week's pieces.
Here I collaged the butterflies, pressed flower petals and two skeleton leaves.
I added a bit of sepia coloured paint to the model's face and body so that the bare canvas would not stand out as much and it also gives it an antique look.

Here I collaged the butterfly wings and used magazine pages for the floral headdress.
I will wait a bit more and see what else the paintings need.
Bye for now.
