Kaleidescopes and pattern

Here’s a few of my kaleidescopes where I have been exploring colour and pattern I have used different methods, including collage, oil paint and acrylic paint. 

Collage -I love paper 

I love using found images in my artwork. One of my favourite artists is Peter Blake, who uses cut outs in the majority of his work. I’d love to see your collages too. Please email me some photos belindamarialongsden@gmail.com 

St Francis of Assisi painting -work in progress

I have been working on a new painting similar to Joan of Arc painting. This is of a statue of St Francis of Assisi which will have moss growing on it. I will be using similar motifs to the Joan of Arc painting.  I had to redo the figure as he was too slim. The black and white paints are harder to use than the metallic paints. It’s in the stage that I don’t like at the moment, but will keep on with it.
