I sold this tiny painting to a lovely person in the U.S.
Moon and clouds #1
Almost immediately the master cloud painter showed me what she’s capable of in an amazing and dramatic storm scene over Sydney :
Storm over Sydney 9/1/18
In other obsession news:
Here is a delicious succulent flower I found in my mother’s garden. 3 x five-petalled motifs in one!
My knitting obsession throws up some intriguing images such as these 1/2-used balls of Louisa Harding Amitola Grande.
I pulled out a whole host of unfinished knitting projects. If and when I finish them I’ll colour in the image!
Day 924/77 (approximation?) ☁⚡🌸🎨
Two months on … give or take (including a visit to New Zealand) … and I am in the studio daily. I’m also a latecomer to Pinterest and I am finding this social media platform is one that really suits me. More on Pinterest and NZ a bit later.
So what have I learnt in two months?
1. That I can push around oil paint to create some interesting surfaces
2. That I am still in love with colour and the infiniteness of hues, tints and shades on the palette
3. That I have to work at a reasonable size – almost everything seems too small – each experiment feels confined by its edges
4. That current obsessions and motifs are jockeying for prominence but awesome nature in the form of water and clouds are winning out at the moment (perfect for technical exercises).
I’m photographing stages of technical exercises and here are some thumbnails below. Also being inspired by Artist a day!
