Emily’s Flowers

A little weekend therapy with inspiration from my talented niece and her wonderful ability to arrange the most stunning flowers – thank you sweetie! Work measures: 29″ x 21″ is a mixed media piece using ink, acrylic and pastel on pre-textured paper.

Side-track to “Road Home” – experimenting with tonalism and atmosphere.

As the weather cools and my mind wanders to far away places, I chose to take a side-road back into landscape; looking deeper into atmospheric techniques. Have called this work “Road Home” and is an experiment using various media to produce atmosphere. I am leaning towards a mix between Stage 1. and 3. (below) and will continue experimenting. The completed study is approximately 450 x 450 mm sq. worked on textured paper.

A few weeks ago, when the weather was sunny I took the easel outside in the Autumn warmth.  I like to have several paintings on the go, of varying sizes. It gives me a sense of achievement and satisfaction as one completes and another begins. I particularly enjoy working on a square format.

Time to fail…

I have come to realise the importance of playing, failing and discovery.  Here are some of my experiments from the weekend. Some worked, some didn’t, but what was important is that I rocked up to the easel and was ready to fail; because I now realise that within that failure is inevitable discovery!
