Watch me paint this whimsical girl with her pet ginger tom cat

Hello again, I am back with the video of my sweet girl and cat painting, I’ve added text to explain the steps taken towards making her and set it to relaxing music.
This weekend will be a busy one for me as I have a number of different projects to catch up on and new ones to start too!!
More on this later.
Health and fitness wise I’ve managed to find a diet that suits me quite well, it’s not really a diet but more a way of eating that is in line with maintaining a healthy body.
I will also start going to the gym next week… hopefully.. lol I’ll let you know if I manage to do it. In the meanwhile I’m continuing with my youtube workouts!! :)

New Sweet Girl and Cat painting :)

I managed to finish another sweet girl and cat painting, I am much happier with this one as I feel I gave it my full attention whilst taking it very slowly, enjoying the process of painting and figuring out how I wanted her to look etc.
She came out a bit lighter in skin tone than I expected, I think ‘High Yella’ is the term used in the USA :D
My next painting will feature a girl wth much darker skin and possibly plaits.

Generally life has been good, I am really getting into my fitness and healthy lifestyle changes, I have been on a mission to see my abs!! but I have no idea if they actually exist :D I have cut quite a lot of things from my diet such as dairy, wheat (mostly), processed foods, alcohol (mostly) etc and have been doing a number of different youtube exercise routines… they are amazing!!! More on this in my next post!!

New painting – Wild and Free

I recently finished a painting that was inspired by a Life Book 2015 prompt. I’ve never painted a horse before but have wanted to for ages, as I spent a lot of my childhood at the local riding stables :).
It took a long time to make but I’m glad I persevered.

Hortus

I’ve finally finished my live cinema show ‘Hortus’ you can read a little about it below :)

Hortus explores the relationship between natural and urban environments, it takes the viewer on a journey of discovery through the presence, form and processes of vegetal nature found throughout cities but often overlooked and ignored.

Urban Nature

Part 1 – ‘Urban nature’ features a tree as a metaphysical central character binding the human psyche with the non human and was inspired by Malcolm Le Grice’s Berlin Horse.

Filmed at various London man made linear green spaces that finger their way through concrete and brick, including the Green Chain Walk in South East London, The disused railway line Parkland Walk in North London and the Lea Valley towpath walk in East London.

Abstract nature

Part 2 – ‘Abstract nature’ was inspired by the representation of nature in abstract form in the work of Karl Blossfeldt and Paul Prudence.

Featuring plants found in and around London it invites the viewer to look deeper into the geometric forms and structures of nature.
An attempt is made to induce a hypnotic mental state through forced motion within the imagery and optical fixation.

Unseen light

Part 3 – ‘Unseen light’ was inspired by the plant processes and light harvesting structures involved in photosynthesis, I wanted to convey something of the unseen quality of this phenomenon, which starts with light in the visible spectrum hitting chloroplast reaction centres and starting a chain of protein folding reactions.

Light in the infrared spectrum is reflected and it was this light (invisible to the naked eye) which was captured to make the video, using specialist camera filters.
