Painting Process – stop motion animation

Today I had a go at under the camera stop motion animation creating a piece of artwork. It was meant to be for my final piece in Animation at Uni, but I think I will count this one as a practice and have another go next week. Hope you enjoy!

Finished ‘In Bloom’ Canvas Painting….

This is the finished piece of ‘In Bloom’ my newest mixed media canvas painting. I have varnished it with a glossy, protective finish and painted the canvas edges black to compliment the outlines of the butterfly and the flowers. This piece is inspired by Spring, and is certainly cheering me up in this awful cold weather! I just cannot wait for Spring to come!

I have also listed this piece of original artwork on my Etsy, which you can view here.



Flowers to Brighten the Day; Art of the week

Every week I am going to pick a piece of artwork I have already created and write about it. For the first week I decided to pick one of my favourite pieces I have created. I created this piece back in Summer 2011, inspired by all the flowers outside my living room window. It is painted on a thin edge canvas 20×16 inches. I have textured the canvas with ripped paper, card and stencil and painted it in acrylic and emulsion paints. The flowers are textured with extra Shakespearean paper, musical note paper and string.

This piece is currently for sale on Etsy.



In Bloom…. original canvas painting

My newest piece of art, In bloom, inspired by the approaching Spring. There’s nothing better than painting warm Spring/Summer scenes in the middle of Winter. I have textured the 12×12 inch canvas with ripped paper, card, butterfly and flower stencils for a rough effect. I have also textured the flowers with paper and string, to spring them out of the canvas slightly.

All I need to do is varnish this piece, and it will be available for sale in my Etsy shop.
