When I last posted I was getting ready for the Nurture exhibition at the Art and Design Precinct. I was really happy with how the exhibition went – I sold one of my paintings and received a wonderful review. It was great working with the gallery and I would love to exhibit there again.
At the moment I’m working on an abstract piece in watercolour and pen, with the theme of growth. Here’s how it’s looking so far (please excuse the terrible iPhone photo):
One challenge with abstract paintings like this one is knowing when to stop!
I recently started work on a new canvas piece. I was hoping it would be ready for last week’s Handmade Expo, but the details are taking a while to do!
Here’s what it looks like so far:
Eventually it will be a painting of three of my swirly trees in Autumn colours. Usually I do this style of painting on a small scale in watercolours, but this one is a larger canvas painting (20″ x 24″).
You can see I’ve started the swirls on the left hand side tree – eventually all the trees will be covered in swirls. I’m also using a textured gold glass paint on this painting. I will add the trunks and branches of the trees last.
I haven’t thought of a title for this painting yet – any ideas?
