the opposite of everything...





colour used to make me dizzy; and flowers are the last thing i could see myself painting... ever!? but here it is...

i'm as confused as anyone

random thought: one of my earliest memories as a child was going to my nan's house every weekend with my little wicker basket that she would fill with the most wonderful floral arrangements for me to take home for the week; and as the flowers faded and died I would get really excited about the coming weekend when she would make a brand new arrangement for me (possibly why i like dead flowers)

i'm reading: Evelyn Waugh, Brideshead Revisited

LOUISE BROOKS



i've had this beautiful portrait of a woman in my scrapbook for years, and only recently discovered it to be Louise Brooks a 1920s actress and model; i'm very much in awe of her and she couldn't have come into my life at a better time; i may have to get a bob now

EXPÉRIMENTER EN COULEUR

i have an irritating 'can't do' attitude to colour,
so now i'm just 'gonna do' and live with it, 
until i find my own happy place with it.

so to begin; three stages of colouring 
'la licorne et le pélican' with watercolour pencils

MORE CIRCUS..


2014 is on its way. My New Years Resolutions are much the same as any year:
draw more
finish more projects
write that book

NEW PROJECT


The brainstorm goes something like this: Circus, Paris, Animals 
The execution is perplexing, many blank pages, and many unjuxtaposed images, fighting with colour (it never ends) and literally having dreams of unfinished art taking the form of empty vessels. I looked this up, something which I never do but I thought it might spark something and I was surprised by the answer 'to dream that a container is empty represents optimism.' I took this to mean that I am over thinking it; letting that perfectionist in me get the better of me. So I bought Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon; read it and then stopped procrastinating and threw this together. Its out there now, I can't take it back...

Christmas cards already!

I've never been so organised for Christmas!
5 sold already! you cant really see it in this picture but the cards are a beige colour giving them a vintage look.. they are quite beautiful.


I am also working on a card game to sell at Christmas or hopefully before; played the mock up version today and it's loads of fun. Cannot wait to see the finished product.

the recently retired principal of Highlands College pointing to the drawing he bought

3 victorian hats (my second red dot)

its hard to come to terms with the fact that people will pay real money for my drawings
