Well another term has passed by in no time at all. One of the projects we worked on was reflections in the rain. I managed to complete 2 pieces and the 3rd piece was a little extra I did at home of a local hot spot. The little car piece was my first branching out into oils which was very exciting (and I must admit I am liking the feel of oils very much I think I've found myself a new favourite medium). Hope you enjoy, all pieces are available for sale so please visit my website for prices and more information.
This term at Splashout we've been given a bit of free reign in our projects with some loose guidelines as to subject matter and choices of entry point. I actually find this quite challenging as I end up with so many different ideas of what I want to do and how I want to do it I end up getting bamboozled by it all. But this in itself is a great learning curve. Anyway, out of 4 pieces which we are suppose to get finished (with a possible 5th), I've managed to complete 3 so far. My 1st one (theme "Industrial") and my 3rd piece finished today (theme "reflections") I'm happy with. My 2nd piece (theme "figurative") was a disaster - just didn't feel the love when that one was finished, so I've now painted over it. (You win some, you destroy some haha). And tomorrow I hope to start on my 4th piece (theme "coastal). Variety is good - unless you try different genres you just don't know what you may or may not like. I've really enjoyed doing both the industrial and reflections ones - maybe it has something to do with buildings! So here is my latest "River Torrens at Night" $350 (76x76cm)
My latest commissioned caricature done for a repeat client. This one is her nieces new horse and goes with the previous piece of her niece and old horse. I hope she enjoys it as much as the first one and I wish her a happy belated birthday
