Textures- Works in Progress

Spent a couple of hours in Photoshop extracting and putting together some diagram, texture and collage pieces ready to transfer to paper. Many of these diagrams are taken from the British Library’s public domain albums on Flickr.

These will make up the base textures to a coupe of artworks that will be submitted to exhibitions over the next couple of weeks.

I’m planning to print, cut and paste some parts and image transfer some parts using both gel medium and acetate printing techniques. Once on the paper the textures will be drawn, painted and inked over.

New Artwork- Test Card

test card artwork


Test Card, ink pen, watercolour, colour fineliner, acrylic ink, white gel pen, 9x19cm

The small testcard was challenging to get looking right, I ended up using my mini colourful Stablio fineliners to colour in the sections.

International Postcard Show 2016

postcard sightseeing

postcard together

1] Sightseeing, mixed media postcard, 6 x 4 inches

2] Together, mixed media postcard, 6 x 4 inches

Two postcards I sent off to Nottingham for Surface Gallery’s International Postcard Show. Both postcards have a base of paper ephemera- a mixture of train tickets and car park ticket stubs with acrylic ink, watercolour and ink pens. Together has found vintage anatomy images- the heart in the middle has also been cut apart and hand stitched together with black thread.

Will be nice to start off this year with an exhibition with artists from around the world.
