Well the renovations have finally been completed in the basement and I am now free to set up my home studio.
Though it isn’t as fancy as some Artist’s may have it is mine and that’s Awesome!
It is far from complete as I still have a few tweaks I would like to make but for now this is how things are progressing.
The other half of the space will be shared by my husband for all his hobbyist en-devours and used as our Multi-Media room including our sizable home library.
All in all it should be a fairly stimulating work/play space.
I’ll update more as thing progress
Here are the prints I’ve been working on lately.
The betta fish piece was a trial run of printing on painted paper. I thought the multicolored effect suited the fish.
I had it painted from a previous project I was working on and hadn’t used.
It’s painted with watercolors, salt for effect, and cheese cloth for texture.
At the moment, there are only two using this background effect, but I plan on doing up more sometime in the near future.
Next, my Magnolia’s.
I wanted to do something with a subtler touch, so I went with yellow, white, and silver.
Finally, the pomegranate.
I wanted this piece to be rich and warm so I went with red and gold.
All in all, I think they turned out pretty well.
Here they are laid out to dry.
Well, that’s it for today.
I’m off to work on something new though I don’t yet know what.
I’ve taken a break from the “Curvy” series and started a new series focused on shoes.
More specifically, stilettos.
The series will be called “7 styles of ————–”
Why the blank? Well that’s because I’m not telling just yet.
I want to see what you, the viewer might think it is.
What comes to mind when you think of high heel shoes?
The series will consist of 7 watercolor and ink paintings each 9″x12″ with a stiletto as the subject.
Here is #1.
And as per the norm, I was too impatient to wait for the ink to dry.
Let me know your thoughts.
The next installment of the “Curvy” Watercolor series.
For some reason, this one just did not want to be photographed this evening…
might have something to do with the fact that it wasn’t 100% dry yet
*shrug* What can I say? I’m impatient.
Anyway instead of fighting with it all night, I decided to use the not so stellar photo regardless.
So keep in mind that this photo does not do it justice but is good enough to give you the idea.
Here is #3 in the “Curvy” series.
I’m enjoying the series so far but I’m not sure if I’ll get another one finished tomorrow night or not.
I need to do up a couple more backgrounds and pick up more ink so we’ll see what happens.
But for tonight enjoy and Cheers.
