New Artwork: Decay

decay artwork

Decay, acrylic ink and fineliner on paper, 44 x 34cm. For this piece I used a photo of an abandoned building in Bayern/Bavaria taken by https://www.instagram.com/artsbyxd/

Recently I’m loving experimenting with the contrast of an inky background overlaid with more structured forms. I do want to add a little more of an abstract feel to upcoming artworks.

Illustration Friday-Shelter

My submission for this week’s Illustration Friday, Shelter. A sketchy, inky drawing on a Moleskine page.

The base layer on the page is tissue paper that was wrapped around my soap from Lush. The drawing itself is pigment ink pen, watercolour and acrylic ink.

Moleskine sketches and planning

Moleskinepage_wiredollprep_watermark

 

Sketches and mixed media planning for an art piece in my Moleskine. This piece is inspired by a doll/lamp in grav3yardgirl‘s latest antique hall video.

I mainly wanted to experiment with texture, collage and media that would reflect the condition and eerie charm of the doll and see what would work in the final piece.

I’m very much looking forward to starting this artwork.

Illustration Friday

This week’s topic on Illustration Friday is Whiskers and I didn’t think I would upload anything this week as I’d left it late.

However, seeing that Wally/Gotye won 4 ARIAs today and I love this image of him with one of the awards I thought I’d make this quick piece of artwork and upload it. He does have stubbly whiskers in the photo so there’s the connection with the original topic haha. This was quickly done so it’s not perfect but I like it.

And of course congrats to Wally for the awards.
