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!! :)
Phew! I just managed to get January’s calendar art journal page uploaded in time :). This month I tried to create flowers in an x-ray style using both transparent and opaque acrylic paint. The technique involved creating wispy smoke-like paint strokes on a dark background of black gesso.
I have a process video below the photo.
Next time I will be showing you my new art journal for 2016, I’ve decided to use a Paperchase scrapbook album and will be testing it with a variety of different paints :).
A bowie-esque image I made a while ago…, Bowie had a huge impact on me, seeing him at Live Aid, watching ‘The man who fell to earth’ in a university library I used to sneak into whilst at school, hearing ‘Heroes’ playing during the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics. He is a real icon and someone whose style, energy and nerve helped to found a generation of creative risk takers.
I managed to complete my December calendar art journal page just in time yay! It has been a challenge to work on a page of this size and dimension, being long and thin, but that has made it really interesting and I will be continuing using the same calendar in 2016.
This month I decided to create a stag in the form of a silhouette and used many layers of paint to create the effect, The highlights were created using Sakura soufflé gel pens, which are lovely.
There is a fast forward process video below the picture.
(I wrote this post using the speech recognition software on my iPad, it’s fantastic and really quick!)
My November calendar art journal page is finished, I used paper cuts and hand painted elements on this page to give the feel of a whimsical winter landscape. It also features my little bird called Fredi who seems to have popped up in a lot of paintings recently. I painted some of the paper cuts with my new shimmery pearl FW acrylic ink.. I love it! Check out the step by step video below the photos for more info on how I created this page. In December I will be trying to paint a reindeer..
I recorded a step by step video of painting my whimsy cute girl and bird, I hope you enjoy it. :)
I recently finished this colourful whimsical painting of a cute girl with her pet bird.
