Cities, Counties & Predators

Cities, Counties & Predators

Well some time ago, I asked my facebook “likers” to check out my newly designed website to find a certain piece of information.. with clues strewn into the statement…. one of my work colleagues.. launched enthusiastically into the challenge and won the offered prize of a free lil drawing. His request was of The Predator, much to my disgust lol… I nearly drew a pair of bikini’s on him… but eventually I stuck with the program. Here tis.

 

I also have finished my 8 week course on landscapes and abstracts, taught by David Giles. The class was very interesting, but way out of my normal scope of painting interests.  It was great to step out from what I normally paint or draw… and it was also a bit frustrating.  Still I’m going to pursue it a bit longer and do another 8 weeks of the course to see if I can get really loosened up and into it… I did quite like the results of some of the other students and was only just starting to achieve satisfaction from attempting this new style.

Here’s some of the recent pieces from the past 2 weeks.

Getting Inspiration

Getting Inspiration

This Saturday class has been an interesting and thought provoking way of looking at how I paint and visualise images.  I have always liked concentrating in on patterns of the every day world, so I’ve quite enjoyed trying on different ways to reflect that in my paintings and illustrations.

As we listened to our teacher talk on how we often miss many things around us.. not truly seeing the many wonderful colours and patterns hidden in every day life, I glanced out the window and noticed the awesome colours and patterns in the awnings of the Fremantle Buffalo Club.  After that, I’ve been taking lots of photo’s to get myself inspired and ready for some new paintings to start this week.

Take a look – I hope to post something painted up soon brought out by the below.

 

Oh none of the submissions I made in the “The Love is here Project” were voted through to be in the final book selections. =(

I guess Ireally  shouldn’t be   surprised  … and I must learn not to be so easily disheartened… silly girl.
