Today was spent in my artist’s friends beautiful garden learning some new painting techniques from artist Marc Dazie Hulme who was kind enough to take time out to help us achieve some new ideas. My finished artwork shows Crazy Horse ascending to heaven, with animals joining him on his journey. I have used some stencils and collage too to build the layers.
Its been a busy few weeks, with the open studio event, two exhibitions and a street art event. Not to mention creating stock for my other business Wolverhampton Gifts. I am now creating a colouring in book which will include iconic landmarks and buildings from my home city. Its been great researching Wolverhampton and I’ve found out so much I didn’t know. Such as one of the Ripper victims was from here. Also we have the third oldest church bells in the world. We also executed traitors who were part of the gunpowder plot. Hopefully I’ll be able to show you some of the book next week.
I am going to explore other avenues to making art, rather than producing work on canvas and framed prints. I have been on location with my artist friend Jennifer Gollings, who is seen here in the black hat. We are collaborating to make a stop motion film, which we have found out can be rather time consuming. Here we are planning the route of paper boats to the canal and spiraling some feathers to create patterns.
