I have based this new artwork on the film The silence of the lambs. I didn’t want to use too obvious motifs and have used some of my other artwork in this painting: e.g Anne Boleyn and some anatomical drawings. I have used Oils for the background with gold leaf and decoupage to add depth.
I have been working on a new painting which is based on stained glass windows. I wanted the artwork to have the translucency of a stained glass window. I began by looking a nebulas, black holes and space photographs so I could get an ethereal look to the painting. I have kept a limited palette of colours as I will be overlapping the oil paint so the colours on top will change the under painting.
New painting: Everybody must have a fantasy. I just have to add the text. Collage on canvas. This is a present to my friend who is also an artist at the Maker’s Dozen Studios. Here is Loz’s blog address http://www.stored-images.blogspot.co.uk/ It is similar to the artwork I produced for a commission. Blooming in the fullness of her nature.
I have turned the painting of Che Guevara from portrait to landscape as I think the composition looks better. I will be altering the pink flowers as I don’t think they are working. I want to make the foreground look nearer so I am going to use lighter colours going darker towards the background. I have sanded down the oil glazes so the underneath layer can be seen in parts. Photo is not the best quality but wanted to share the progress so far.
