Progress Photo- Lilly

This is the first layer for the second painting of a small series I am working on called Lilly. They are 40 x 50CM each in size.
I only apply two layers of paint to each painting. It’s a challenge that I have given myself to work with speed, colour and the texture of the paint.

Photos from my recent exhibition

From mid December to mid January I had some works on display at DeerSPACE- we had the closing party for it the weekend just passed and I thought I should share some photos. I got a lot of great feedback from everyone so thank you for all coming and supporting me!

This painting received the most positive feedback, which surprised me as I actually didn’t like it for a long time! Now I am glad I got it framed and shared it with people.

Painting Allison Browning.

I’ve been painting Allison Browning who is an Australian writer. You can see her work here: LINK!

I met Allison on my brief trip to Australia earlier this year – her house was full of beautiful things and she was really lovely to speak to and work with. I originally wanted to use this as a drawing but with the colours of her skin, dress and the other objects in this image made me change my mind – I felt it best to explore this image with paint.

New Drawings

Here are a few drawings I have been working on lately. I have been exploring new textures and backgrounds as I usually just work with solitary figures. These drawings are a part of an extremely large and daunting project I have taken upon – I will write more about it later.

All drawings from this project are on 30 x 30cm pieces of water colour paper and all are drawn in fine liner pen.
