Metallic Purple Flowers

I found these cute bevaled square canvases in a pound shop of all places – so using acrylics I painting a mottled background using stippling. I then used a very liquidy metallic lavender that comes with a dropper! I dropped paint on the canvas and then used the ‘wronge’ end of the paint bruch i.e. the wooden handle to scratch the paint outwards to make flowers. I then painted magenta stalks in. I wanted it to be a diamond mount and painted it as such.

Seascape in Dots

A Seascape in Dots

I love seascapes and have done ever since starting Secondary school at about 11 when the art teacher I later had for GCSE’s set me the task painting the abyssal plain. At the time I had just watched the film The Abyss and there were documentaries on TV about fish that glowed with their own light. I would then later spend time in my paleo-biology lectures and the like drawing seascapes on letters to my friends.

Anyway – this one is built up from dots! And it took an age. It is felt tip.
