My hibiscus

8 x 10 inxhwa (21 x 26 cm), on metal. In acrylic.

Abstract art

Something I've always wanted to try my hand at, and finally did.

I worked this in dimensional paste first, and only when it had dried did I layer on the acrylic paint. I put on the paint is glazes, and layers.

Varnished. And, polished.

This piece is meant to be touched, I feel. And, I've yet to come up with a name for it :(

Doodled plate: In two pinks

The title says it all, doesn't it?!

Roses and chrysanthemums

I usually am working on two or three projects at a time. And always, I am basecoating boards and bottles - so that I can paint them when I suddenly feel the need to paint!

So, currently, I am working on a calla lily, a hibiscus, and my first ever tree.

But. These two bottles were completed before I even began on the three pieces above! I painted them, and while they dried and became ready for varnish, I began on the other three. Then, I completely forgot about them, although they sat there, right in front of me.

A couple of days ago, I got round to varnishing them, and remembered to take pictures, so that I could post them. 

And oh yes, I also only just finished a doodle, on a plate.

Busy. Busy. Busy.

So, these are the two bottles: Used-to-be Moccona coffee bottles, from years ago, when we drank Moccona. I basecoated the bottles in pinks and greens. Pastel-y.

Always, people want to see the close-ups of a piece. I know I do. That's how I learnt: by looking at other artists' pieces, analysing their brush strokes, and wondering how they did it.

And that, is it: My two recycled instant-coffee bottles.
