Working on multiple paintings

I am really enjoying painting now that I am working on three paintings at the same time; I think it is a perfect number. I can start one painting and then while that is drying I can start another and then the last one. I then go back to the first one and add a few more layers.

‘Maelstrom’ has a very thick impasto (Impasto is a technique used in painting, where paint is laid on an area of the surface (or the entire canvas) very thickly, usually thickly enough that the brush or painting-knife strokes are visible.) effect so I won’t be touching that one for a while.

I also love that I can experiment with the same technique but in slightly different ways. This series is also about trying new things without sticking to a colour scheme or only one method.

Jejune is a hard one to interpret because the meaning is ‘intellectually unsatisfying, shallow’. I love using textures and layers so I can’t bring myself to be paired back. This may be one painting that everyone can interpret differently.

It will be a great joy and achievement to complete these three paintings and be able to move onto the others in this series.

I would love to hear your opinions on my progress so far! Let me know in the comments ๐Ÿ™‚

Affordable Australian Art

So there is an exciting opportunity on Etsy – it’s all very hush hush at the moment but there will be events in three major Australian cities to showcase the art on Etsy. I’ve entered the A3 size Limited Edition print of “Galvanic” .

Fingers crossed as I think they will be shown in shopping centres on large posters as it has to be able to be printed out at 1.4 meters by 1 meter.

So after submitting my entry I saw there was their affordable art picks in which I saw my A3 Limited Edition print of “insouciant”!

New Series – Watercolour Flowers

Creativity is odd. Some days you just feel no inspirations and other days you have too many ideas and not enough time!

I am so excited I have a new project – watercolour flowers. I just love experimenting with colours and line.

I hope to have a calendar made by the end of year of these beautiful flowers – the announcement will be made through my newsletter later this year. In the meantime some of these can be purchased as prints via my Etsy Storeย 

Pop up shop – Far Fetched Designs

How exciting – my art prints have been accepted to be sold at a pop up store in Brunswick Melbourne! The store is only open for 11 weeks but is in a great area.

I am very interested to see how my work is received by people in a retail setting who may have never heard of Etsy ๐Ÿ™‚
