Painting project

So, I haven’t updated this in a while, sorry about that. I’ve recently been diagnosed with something called fibromyalgia, for those who don’t know it, it’s a sucky condition that takes away a huge chunk of your life.

But anyway onto more creative aspects, the past few weeks I’ve been doing more painting then digital work, I wanted to get back to basics.

Most of the paintings are done in Watercolour. It may sound weird but I prefer working more with fluid, in contrast than the solid colour you find in my digital work.

I will admit to using gouache for the sky on this one. Because I hadn’t done traditional painting in a while, this was my piece just to get comfortable.

This  was created using Acrylic and Water colour.

Stained glass windows and gothic architecture are something I always seem to go back too when I do traditional medias but this time I wanted do something different.

I wanted to use the stained glass window as skin, which when you break and peel off it reveals something important on the other side.

Broken Snowglobe (2015)

I’ve had two theories about this piece, both centred on the bird in the picture.

One person saw it as the bird had broken the snow globe

Another saw it as the bird had broken out of the snow globe.

The aim of this picture was to show the bird was imprisoned and searching for freedom, the roses and bars of the cage keep it locked in and the snow globe could have acted as another prison or another layer could be the small city in the snow globe could act as another way out.

I’ll update with more painting hopefully in the next few weeks.

Also another thing I’ll be hoping to put on this site is my written work
