Tuesday, 27th: Conflictions

Complimentary Contrasting Conflictions I am not sure if I am actually distinguishing a difference between these words as of late. Initially, my colours pull themselves together in a complimentary format – but then again can create high contrasts. Lately it seems as though my work is a confliction to itself. My last tutorial (around 3…

Friday, 20th: Cherry Blossom progress

I aways tell myself just will allow for a lie in on Fridays, but that never seems to happen. It isn’t so bad though, at least I can get in some painting before work. The feedback from my assessment stated I should consider to be more abstract in my approach as this will give a…

Wednesday, 18th: Pablo – I think

This afternoon started off with lots of promise; I am hoping to start a painting of some cherry blossoms from outside my house before they all totally fall off. While waiting for ground to dry, I thought I’d finish of Pablo’s painting; I am really unimpressed because I keep making this worse the more I…

Tuesday, 10th: Grey Petals & Tainted

It’s always the way that when you have the time off to paint, you produce rubbish, but when you have very limited or rushed time, you produce masterpieces. Today was an off day (in both senses of the word) allowing for me to try an attempt at an idea I have been contemplating. I’ll show…

Wednesday, 20th

So pretty much came home from work and painted solidly, like a woman possessed (or simply obsessed).  I am going to try and maintain a balance between figurative and abstract, so just wanted to try concealing the swans face within the feathers, but without putting as much detail into the feathers. I wanted to keep…

Sunday, 3rd

I realise the day is far from being over yet but it’s getting fairly dark, ish, meaning I’ll have to pack up the paints for now. I have tried painting with mediocre lighting and in the morning the colours look nothing like what I thought. So really,  I am being super efficient. I have done…

Happy Easter all! Enjoy your chocolate and time with loved ones (in that order hehe). Here’s a piece which is a little different from my norm. A little something for someone who is leaving at work; the seaside sunset here in Aberystwyth.

A few pieces from today. I have finished my 9 little studies now so I began to experiment with how they could work together within a grid format. It is just a case of mounting these squares together in a format that provides the best outcome. I also had the great urge to start a…

Friday, 18th

The best feeling is when you have a surprise day off because you forget when you randomly book holiday, yesterday was that day. I decided to be really focused and determined on doing some art work, shame that it wasn’t all relevant… I switched between working on my own piece and my smaller ones for…

Growing pains. These are an uncomfortable sensation that we all experience at some point in our lives,  some more than others. I am only a little 5 foot 3 lady who had the same blazer throughout secondary school so my physical growth was not that extreme in comparison to others, but how about our emotional…

Thursday, 3rd

Hello and welcome to my new new new blog! I have created a wondrous playground via WordPress that consists of pages containing art work past and present, a little information about myself as an artist as well as a means to contact me. Have a look around and don’t hesitate to tell me if it needs…
