Through back to: Stranger Things

2 years! Two whole years have passed since I painted the Stranger Things gang. I enjoyed this so much but it does not feel like two years! How time flies!

This show thrives on nostalgia for old school sci fi. The story is written well and the monster had me hooked! I do love monsters/creatures! These portraits was so fun to do, and I painted these at a time in my life where I, and my artwork, was thriving. I would love to get back to painting more like I had in the past. Lately, a lot have been put onto my plate. Making art a job is my goal, but only with your help I can succeed and make more art!

You can help by buying prints!

Back

Back in the swing of things 🎨 can’t keep away from my brushes! I have been busy with a new course, secret projects and procrastinating. However, I love painting so much. It helps me meditate and keeps me sane.

I have been drawing more. When I was younger I use to draw with a felt tip pen and so I brought a fancy book and Faber Castell pens and now I am in the process of practicing.

It is a good break from when I feel burnt out from painting. I am a perfectionist and sometimes I have bad art days or I am just not feeling it and having my pens helps me have a break.

That’s it for me for now. I hope I can be consistent again.

Black & White

For the past few days I have been flexing my artistic abilities by drawing small felt pen works in my A5 art diary.

These drawings are so quick and easy and also relaxing. Also good practise for me. I like just free styling without worrying about messing it up – though I do a little πŸ˜‹πŸ–Š mistakes with drawing is cheaper than mistakes with paintings πŸ˜†

It is great to practice like this. I hope you don’t mind, I am sure to do more of these drawings in the future.

Stephen Hawking Progress

The yellowish marking you can see in the photo above is masking fluid. I buy Art Spectrum Masking Fluid, this is the cheapest for me, you don’t need expensive masking fluid. This stuff is good to keep parts of your paper paint-free.

Painting for people that I respect makes the progress fast and fun with only a little bit of fear that it might not be good enough for said person. But this one I felt is good.

Wings

‘”Lift me up high”‘, I said to my wings,
Into the sky, where there are kings,
“I shall not cry!” But I don’t have wings.

It have been really hot in Australia too and my body does not agree with it. I became dizzy the other night just by laying down!

I hope you enjoy this painting and my poem.

How have your weeks fared?

Accidental Beauty

So today I was working on a painting and accidentally made a tissue paper painting πŸ˜›

I sometimes lay toilet paper underneath my painting to prevent paint from pooling along the sides. The toilet paper was still wet in the pictures so it give it a rippling texture and I thought it looked so beautiful. The blue gradient really added to this as well, so beautiful!

This last one was from another painting but it was the toilet paper that made this yellow texture as well. I thought it was really neat!

I come across these accidental paint things sometimes but I really needed to share this since it looks so beautiful!

To me, because of the blue gradient, it looked like the beach at low tide. What do you think? If you paint do you get things like this happen?
