Bird & Snake

Its been a while since I was online & thought I would share a recent work. Its a new one for me being acrylic instead of oil, I was amazed how quick it dried :shock:

Do I mount it or scrap it?

I have been getting back into making bonsai pots & thought I would share a couple of recent pieces waiting to be fired. All are carved from solid blocks of mixed clays. I am still very much a beginner with clay & dont even know if some of these mixes will fire up ok but I guess thats part of...

Re: Upsidedown Miss Jane

Hey Ehoeveler, Thanks for your feedback. I don't think my painting comes from any one influence tho I have a strong liking for Ian Fairweather, not just his art but his person. No real significance to the red, just how the canvas came together as I worked thru the loss of someone I admired & res...

Re: "The Barking Dog"

Hey Jenn, thanks for the feedback. When you say clean up the lines I am not sure what you mean. The whole canvas is about foolscap size, I wouldn't know where to begin or how to go about making it larger tho like the idea of doing it up to the size of my real dogs (great danes).

Re: First Impression

Hey Jenn, thanks for the feedback. I am probably a bit backward because I dont do any precomposing with pencil or ink, I rarely even use brushes! It was just a quick ditty to put down my first impressions after meeting someone, therefore I probably see more than most in it. At the moment it is sitti...

Re: First Impression

Hey Joe, Thanks for the feedback, the thread title is also that of the work. I often sketch in black, using negative space to fill in the detail. I have just posted another in a similar style http://www.asingularcreation.com/Forums/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=6580 . Let me know what you think. Matt

Re: Why do you paint/sculpt/create?

"An artist needs to know why he paints not just how." Because I have a thousand images flying thru my head every second of every day I breath this air around me. It started with gardens & sculpture then classical japanese gardens with highly detailed pencil renderings of individual sto...

Upsidedown Miss Jane

A new oil on canvas I started today, not sure if it is finished or not, the fact it has a title makes me think it is. Really keen to hear what others think.

Re: Man with Barrow Wearing a Tie

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Abstract for me is one of the hardest to do well, probably why I pursue them over other things. This was my inspiration and I feel I missed the mark by a long shot. Hanging high on the end wall of my old A frame she had a view of everything, I saw many faces durin...

An Elephant playing Soccer with ?

Wasn't really sure if this fit anywhere else on the forum. Its been quite a day & thought I would share some of it here. Start the day with boring domestics then grocery shopping, I loathe shopping full stop, having to buy food is even worse. Get to the shops & an art display is being set up...

Re: A Merle's Fury

Hi Jenn, Thankyou so much for the feedback, it helps no end and I will be giving it alot of thought. Abstracts are hard to comment on, as its subjective to both the artist as well as the audience. I think this is one of the things that draws me to it more than any other style of painting, everyone w...

A Merle's Fury

I have never shown my work before apart from family & friends who obviously have to be nice... This is a recent work that was painted after some hassles erupted over one of my dogs (a merle great dane). 100_3565rz.jpg While I posted in the be gentle forum I really dont mind what people have to s...
