A short video I did a little while ago in my backyard. The music was also created by me (another fleeting side hobby), and it highlights how I paint my art canvas when I “DIY”my medium. Enjoy, and thank you for stopping by, -S
check out my art canvas tutorial! Part two will be posted later this week.
My latest piece entitled: “The Dark Spot” looks a lot like a rorschach test. It can be hung in any orientation, but I chose to upload it in landscape to that it would be easier to view. I used cerulean blue and slate grey to create contrasting fields that slowly deepen into the dark violet area. This dark spot reminded me of an inky blot. It holds mystery and intrigue. It is definitely one of my recent favourites. Thanks for stopping by, -S Save
My latest piece, No. 18, is a colourful menage of blue, yellow, and orange/red. In this pieces I wanted something that could be hung in any orientation that was pleasing to the eyes. It’s nice to be flexible with design and art. I think that flexibility allows for more enjoyment in life. Thanks for stopping by, -S
More experimentation with texture in my most recent piece called No. 17. Texture is becoming really integral to my style- as is the use of gold and bronze. For me: the use of gold and bright reflective colors in my work represents the sun. In life, similar to the art that imitates it, there should always be a bright spot. Thanks for stopping by, -S Save
I’m back at it again with my smaller sized canvas pieces. In this piece I used layering and marbling. The gold is a nice effect- as it draws the eye by creating a reflective/ metallic look. I’ve also decided on a more prominent and “swirly” signature to sign my work. I should be taking credit for my creative side and making my name known. Thanks for stopping by, -S
Lately, I have been working with a lot of pastel greens and examining how they interact with deep cerulean blue in my acrylic technique. When I say “lately” I’m specifically talking about the past few days since summer has arrived here in Southern Ontario, Canada. Although my initial entry into the art world began with my desire to create large artists canvas at infinitesimally cheaper costs than retail; I have become preoccupied with smaller pieces (6″ x 12″) in a rectangular shape. By the end of July, I am hoping… Read more A blissful underwater acrylic scene →
For this piece, I wanted to use colours and techniques that I have previously explored earlier in the year. I started with blue and added reds and blacks to change colour values in addition to performing swirling techniques that allowed for a nice marbling effect. I think that the photo (taken with my iPad) does not truly give justice to the beautiful details of this piece. If you click on the photo, you will have an enlarged view- but until I upgrade my camera arsenal to take better photos, you… Read more Blue and Violet Acrylic Wonder with a broken camera →
