Its been too long! Arty update time

Hey all, I’m sorry it has been so long since I posted. I got a new job earlier this year and, although I’ve been painting and drawing in my free time, I’ve neglected to post anything whilst I’ve been adjusting to my new routine. Below are some of the things I’ve been working on during my down time from work:

The Tobacco Fairy

Tobacco Fairy

This is my Tobacco Fairy. Who knew tobacco flowers were so pretty? She isn’t quite the same as my original planning sketch but I like to think that this painting has its own character. Perhaps a little more upbeat?

I always find it super annoying when the thing you paint looks awful when you scan it. It has always been a bit of a sore subject with me. The painting above is case in point. I don’t know if its the lighting in the scanner or the lighting out of the scanner but it feels as though something is lost.

This could just be normal artistic paranoia but it will always remain one of my hang ups.

 

 

Fairies R Us

So, I’ve started framing the cheeky lasses. They don’t look half bad if I do say so myself.

This is probably the closest I have gotten to forming a proper collection of work that I’m really happy with.

Next stop, once I’ve painted a couple more, will be to start the process of submitting to a couple of galleries. This will be the part where I shuffle into the gallery, squeak my name like a pre pubescent boy and proceed to stumble over my sentences whilst asking about getting my work on the wall. 

Or I’ll just walk into the gallery and stare at the curator until they feel uncomfortable and ask me what I want before I silently shove my paintings into their stomach and flee whilst giggling manically.     

I haven’t chosen my favoured approach yet.
