So my last few little paintings have not only varied from my usual subject matter, but also taken me on a journey through introducing more vibrant colour in my artwork. It was an itch that needed to be scratched shall we say, and the practice will invariably help me with colour compositions (even more muted) in the future.
Check out the latest WIP blog posts of these pieces below!
First off was a lil' cityscape oil (the first I've done as far as I can remember!)
Here's the short WIP post of it's creation..
An Ol' English Pub CityScape & Figure Painting.
Next the largest (though still small, shown above) of the three.
'Vegvisir' was not only an experimentation of colour and texture, but also trying out a technique to create a textural design on the support, that can only really be discerned at an angle.
Experimenting with Colour and Pattern.
Finally, my lil darling 'Watson' gave me the opportunity to try out an even more vibrant, though minimal, palette.
Watson' the Cat Wet on Wet Oil Painting.
As I write this I'm working on a larger than usual painting, while beating off the strong desire to wander off trying out other ideas that keep popping up in waves of inspiration (I may still succumb....). Creating art is not just about having amazing ideas though, but actually finding a way to bring it into being, and doing the long haul (mostly uninspiring work) of executed it well to its finish!..
Thanks for dropping by guys!!.. :)
I've got a bunch of blogs.
