Another commission, which was done as a gift for an 8 year old little girl. Her brief was owls and roses! Again this is in acrylic with some collage. The bigger leaves on the tree are the Honesty flower seed heads, and again I have used the light moulding paste pushed through a flower stencil at the bottom of the picture. Grass stems are glued at the base of the tree. Anything goes with this kind of painting….. I must do more of it!
This first was for a young couple just starting up in their first home together, so it’s called ‘New Beginnings’. I had a brief which included flowers, and anything relevant to – well – new beginnings! This is one of my collages with acrylic paint, lots of stamping and stencilling. I’ve used light moulding paste pushed through a rose stencil for the roses at the bottom of the painting. And the black circular-like blobs on the right are dried acrylic paint, over painted with black.
An Art Deco themed painting incorporating some big hair and bubbles. This is marker pens on Bristol board.
I have to admit, with this one, which is watercolours and markers, including the wonderfully vibrant, opaque ‘Posca’ pens which will cover over anything and everything, I did use photoshop (yes been getting my head round that too these last few months!), to actually remove 2 clouds that were in the sky. And also to get rid of a join in the paper where I actually added a new sheet partly underneath to redo part of the painting. Clever stuff the old photoshop, tho I only know a teeny little bit about it!
I know … it seems most watercolour paintings have these ‘drips’ – I just wanted to give them a go…. I quite like too!
Hoopla – watercolours with a small amount of marker pens to embellish.
