Busy Creating Art!

Sorry for a bit of radio silence, I am busy working in the final two Art ChLlengesof my 52 Art Challengesgoal. They’re the last two so they have to be good, right!

The final two challenges will be sculpture/clay modelling with metalwork, and self portraiture. So whilst they are underway, firing takes time, please keep enjoying my less time consuming creations at my Facebook page. I post regularly there, as I create new artworks.

Here are some of those you might enjoy.

   
   
   
    
   

     

 Many thanks for visiting the page, I’ll be excited to post my creations as soon d they are completed, exciting time. Just need to decide how to celebrate the final art challenge…. Any ideas welcome. The question is will I stop there? This has been a journey. 

Under The Sea

I’d like to be, under the sea…

These art my artworks of how it feels to swim with the fish.   
This piece all started with the inspiring colours of sea foam in Llandudno Bay, North Wales. I then uses Snapseed to enhance the natural colours and then painted and smudged in the colours in Pixelmator. 

I added fish that I painted with sea water in Egypt, after I saw them snorkelling. I painted onto the fish in app to add more detail and how the light as it plays on them in the moving water. I added a swimming girl and beach scene to contrast with the myriad of colours in the underwater world. 

I love to snorkel inthe Red Sea. 

I then had a visualisation of a further piece that I wished to create following my figurative drawing challenge of a woman swimming towards the onlooker. 

I used similar techniques, again creating in Pixelmator and added my hand painted fish. 

  I’m missing snorkelling as usually we would be soon taking a trip but this year we cannot, so I’m satisfying my underwater love through recreating my experiences through art.

Happy New Year. The Year I became an artist. 

Happy New Year to the great people who follow my blog.  

Thank you for your support. 

  My year started with acute knee injury so it’s been one hell of a year. It gave me space to focus on my art, and was a time of family support and love, but has been the hardest of my life, so it’s with mixed emotions that the year ends and a new one begins.
