Decided to try out something different this time with one of my figure gesture studies.. This piece pretty much evolved organically with the different media added according to what was called out for as the piece progressed!
New gesture drawing from one of my practice sessions (2D source). As usual this piece has been mounted on archival Japanese Rice paper to reinforce the papers strength, this time however I decided to have the rice paper over lap the newsprint by about a 0.5 cm as I thought it looks rather nice that way..
Available now in my Etsy store.. :)
Thanks for dropping by! :D
So I went a diving in to my old store of holiday pics from the bygone days when I went anywhere at all, and found some snapshots taken on a trip to Tioman Island.. Their beaches are the stuff of paradise, as are many of our beautiful seaside destinations here. The sand as fine as caster sugar and water so crystal clear, one could almost forget the degradation and pollution that would probably have shown up if not for the resorts careful maintenance.
Painted alla prima....
.... and another gesture drawing... :)
More gesture drawings!.. Simple and direct, drawings like these are best done by feeling the gesture of the model in ones own bones as one draws them.
Hidy ho guys! So I got out and got some sun for once, which took all of 15 paces from my door.. haha!!
Now I kid, I'm not that bad with the sun thing (not that hard in sunny Malaysia!), this was however a first in a long time at doing an en plein air painting, and the weather sure was ideal!..
Loved how this gesture drawing turned out!
Thanks for dropping by guys!.. :)
p.s Pardon the French! Been trying to incorporate it more in to my everyday speech/writing to strengthen my grasp of the language.. :D
Had fun painting this lil piece using a minimal Zorn palette of Yellow Ocher, Cadmium Red, Ivory Black & Titanium White!..
Another expressive piece combining a mix of media to create a blend of abstract realism. The gestural charcoal drawing of an expectant mother was first fixed from the back with shellac in expressive strokes that would then still be visible in a luminous like effect under the layer of translucent black plaka paint strokes in the front.
The linear accidental effects from the paint caused by the natural puckering of the paper when wet, gives further dimensional layering and interest to the piece..
These are a few gestures from one of my drawing practice sessions I thought would look awesome as a set together. They could either be hung together or separately to create a harmonious cohesiveness to a living space.
Each was created with charcoal pencil on newsprint mounted on Japanese archival rice paper and measure 8.5 x 11.5 Inches each.
The astronomical clock in Prague is the 3rd oldest clock in the world and the oldest running and its intricate design and craftsmanship is really a sight to behold. This watercolour was painted from an image my mum took on a trip there a few years back. I instantly fell in love with the image of this beautiful medieval wonder and knew I had to paint it.
