of flowers, abstracting from flowers in paint and in inktense

 Of Flowers.  Mixed media on canvas.

The image below is a part of avariation on this canvas which you can read about here - each version exploits the mark making potential of the medium used.  The flower is purely imaginary and abstracted.  It's about flowers rather than being a flower. 

I was asked to do a commission with abstracted flowers and this is a fragment ....


 Fragment of a commisssion, using Derwent Inktense

now to look at paperwork :>(  and hopefully paint some more ....

Feather in mixed media

Ragged feather in mixed media

A ragged feather in a mix of watercolour, coloured pencil, Derwent tinted graphite pencils and biro.

I can't show the work I've been busy with yet.   And paperwork and marking has been taking up a lot of time too.   So many plans and ideas and so little time and energy!
