OK so I have a tendency to become obsessed with fictional worlds – be that TV, books, etc. My latest of these is a television series called Our Flag Means Death – I haven’t been this crazy about a television show since I was a teenager contributing to fan-zines about the X-Files. My friends and family will be well aware of this, because I haven’t shut up about it.
I’ve been loving seeing the art of other fans on Twitter and Tumblr. My favourite so far is Illustory art – I just love the way they draw the characters & had to get myself a “Lucius is not dead” T-Shirt from their Redbubble store. My new office at work is something of a cave and I want to decorate with lots of things that make me happy – so I’ve also ordered this print to go on the wall.
Anyway. As much as I would love to do art of the characters, drawing/painting people is not really my thing, so I decided to have a go at making some artwork centered around some of my favourite quotes for the show. I can see myself doing more of these, but this is what I’ve come up with so far:
I absolutely loved painting these and can see myself doing some more similar ones in the future. If you’re a fan like me, leave me a comment with your favourite quote you’d like to see in a wreath! If you haven’t seen the show, I highly recommend it!
“Plumage” – another in my series of intuitive paintings. I didn’t intend for this to look like feathers from the outset, but that’s what it ended up looking like to me! That’s one of the things I love about this painting style. I love just exploring the paint and seeing where it takes me. It’s especially fun in watercolours, because they really have a mind of their own sometimes.
This original painting is in A4 size, which makes it easy to purchase frames for. It is available for purchase from my Etsy store. Prints and products like the ones featured below are available from Redbubble.
This painting is part of my intuitive art series. What is intuitive art? I’m sure it means different things to different people, but for me, it’s about letting go as I paint – using painting as a form of meditation. Seeing where the brush takes me without having a plan in mind at the beginning. It’s really relaxing and I think this is one of my favourite types of painting to create.
This one is hard to capture digitally – the gold paint has a lovely shimmer to it.
The original painting is A4 size, and is available for purchase in my Etsy store. Prints and products like the ones featured below are available via Redbubble.
I called this painting ‘contemplation’ because this style of painting is very meditative to me. I never know what the finished painting is going to be like when I begin – I just go with the flow, and see where the paint takes me. I love this combination of colours!
