This is a painted sketch of a bronze leaping cat, Eastern Zhou dynasty, China 400BC
Reposting this (Suilven sketch) as photobucket is playing at silly buggers...
I finished my painting..
A few paintings...from The Western Way.
I finished another Sweet Girl and Cat painting
Bought some acrylic paints. They are so much easier to work with!
Work in progress:
FabricLiveBaby! Cute little cat!! what medium were you using before??
I've always found the lack of control with watercolour really difficult. I know you're supposed to paint more freely with it, but it's just so difficult not to fuck it up and turn your colour into a muddy pool!
Yeah watercolour is really hard to control but the upside is that its really easy to blend with as the water sort of does it by itself..
Take a look at Laovaan's work here
and Bao Pham's work here
That sir is a seriously cool website. It even mentions a book I read years ago, 'Footfall', about an alien invasion and I was glad to see it given a rave review.
The only doodles I've done lately have been quite meditative calming ones. I like getting lost in the details, the motion and the sound of the sweeping ink. Unfinished-
I love this...
Reminds me of Scottie Wilson.
Still Work in progress... Added more layers.
Also forgot to stick the paper down so now it's starting to warp. Lesson learnt.
Fur is hard.I can't do fur.
Went for a lovely walk with some mates in Ojców National Park (near Kraków).
The colours were putting on a show. There was a lovely moment when said mates were walking ahead of me past a ploughed field towards a forest with all the leaves shimmering in the sunlight. So I took a picture, then painted it..
Poland has some spectacular leaf shows this time of year!
As with all my painting "it's not finished yet".
What did you use to colour it in? Did you do the design first or make it up as you went along? And how big is it?
Sorry for hounding you with questions I just really like it & want to do something similar
It's really small...less than half an a4 sheet. I used staedtler? Fine liner to draw the design and then sharpies to carefully colour in. It would have been easier with finer felt tips but I love the way sharpies spread to the borders. I made it up as I went along yeah.
Messing around in PS again. This time making a logo for a DJ collective I'm in.
The hand shadow
Still using a shitty webcam, but my first Lisbon sketch to be posted here. It is a fabulous city for architectural studies. I am getting hooked on the neoclassical sculpture relief things. This is the old town hall - my favourite of the older buildings here. It isn't public access (I think you can make an appointment for a Sunday morning guided tour at certain times of the year), but I have made a sketch for the caretaker who steals the town clerks paper for me. It is fucking well amazing inside, and should, by all rights be public access. Anyway...
I will try and do a better photo, or remember where I left my Samsung smartphone charging. I think it was a long way from here. Possibly Huelva
Best I can get from this...
Tried another in B&W today thinking my laptop camera would like it better. Marginally so. Need a camera urgently.
i got a book through the post the other day. a show catalogue, really, but beautifully made, really considered. gave the book-maker in me a little <squee> so proud to have been part of the project
Looks nice. Which one is yours? Can you grab an image to post here?
it'll be on here already somewhere. i was in a book folding phase. the first one i did said "cunt"
A sketch I made the other day
I made an advent calendar for my wife, this is before I put the doors in it.
Yes there are sticky plastic gem stones on the tree and sparkly glitter glue. It's Christmas!
I made another Life Book 2017 painting! I am so behind with these!!
