Have been playing with the texture of the paint the past few months, trying to use it physically rather than just render a specific image I have in mind. Sometimes it works better than others, I’ll admit that. I like it when it’s deep enough to carve into, actually, and have played with that a bit here. With enough time and patience, it might bring new meaning to the term layers. It’s quite ‘messy’ though, for lack of a better term.
Well my dog might not seem impressed, but I think my mask is starting to show potential.
Oh yeah, and I got my “golden scoop” to commemorate the occasion.
Seriously what’s up with the grains of crap in my oil paint?
Spent the last few nights painting my mothers church for her and my Aunt to auction off at the church bazaar this weekend. It’s really not the style that’s liked out there, but maybe they’ll get a few dollars for it anyway. Every little bit helps … and let’s face it, my baking skills are marginal at best. I’ll make finishing touches tomorrow as gotta sleep soon.
Dropped in to wander this afternoon. Lots of artwork to look at. This was my favourite space though ….
Now if only they’d made a ceiling of artwork too, it’s be awesome.
Other cool art …
… and some truly unbelievable hair. Will keep those images to myself though. Will make good drawing fodder later.
Hmm. Now what?
We were always on the go in Alberta, as it was a driving tour sort of vacation. Saw a lot in a short timespan, which is amazing. Most of my quiet time to draw was found in the backset of the jeep, driving between beautiful locations. Good for later recall, mostly. Here’s a few of those on-the-go-sketches, done in a moving vehicle.
