The birds from our crab apple tree have turned into two little images which work quite well when repeated. They could eventually be a wrapping paper design I think.
And this little one decided he was most at home in a book. I don’t blame him.
It has been far too cold to make use of the studio this week so I am hiding out in the warmth of the kitchen but it means I have finally captured some of those bird visitors on camera.
Here are the first few sketches, hopefully on their way to becoming a new series of lino prints.
Collected my finished print from the framers today. Feeling pleased with the final result. Check it out on Artweb!
Fallen in love with the colour I mixed up today so I gave it a name!
I didn’t want to waste the left over ink so had a little fun here. If I sell it it will have to be as a giclee or greeting card as the paper isn’t archival but I love the colour combination so might well add it to my stock.
Filled up the drying rack again today so used my left over ink for a little fun.
I’m pulling those hogweed images into a new composition and started the edition today. Look out for them on Artweb soon!
I’m seeing what I can do with some hogweed drawings which have been knocking around the studio since autumn. I have carved them up as a series of lino blocks and now I need to work out the colour schemes and composition. This is the fun part!
Now I know it’s cheating to use the kids paintings in my own work… but the colours are just so good! Bad mummy.
It’s not easy to work during the school holidays so I am embracing the opportunity to take some time off instead! Space to doodle and daydream. Happy christmas all.
Been back on the floor drawing on A1 again today. That flowering ivy is still looking good. The cold has made my hands stiff and added an extra tension to the line.
