It felt like i was lacking in, one of my five a day. This little poisoned apple took 3 and a half hours. I don’t think I’ve ever painted fruit before! Weird. I’m actually really fond of this one 🙂
Soundtrack for this evening was more Muchuu and some Cherryshoes.
This painting was slightly more fiddly than some of the others. It took 5 hours to finish. UPDATE: This painting is now sold
Soundtrack for this evening was Muchuu, Dream Wife and Eels
Today’s image was a flamingo. Yay. I went with some more swirly vibes for this one, which also sits well with a few of the other paintings in my February collection. This one took 4 hours.
Soundtrack for this evening was the Yeah Yeah Yeahs 🙂
Painting #20 in my daily painting challenge is ‘Venus’. This one took 4 hours. I started painting pretty late this evening! 10pm start time. Definitely time for bed now.
Soundtrack for this evening was, the inside of my head, telling me to go to sleep!
This painting was Inspired by tonight’s soundtrack and song lyrics by the wonderful Raymond Weatherill AKA ‘Dirty Ray’ ( i hope you don’t mind Ray x x ) This one took 3 and a half hours. Ray’s Original lyrics are:
Put all your sins in a basket, far too heavy to hold, find the beauty in your sadness, when you’re alone. Taken from the song ‘Old Man In Young Mans Shoes’.
Dirty Ray – Big World For A Little Man.
I see a rainbow! This one is quite a simple effort for today. The white background is actually the white of the canvas which seems to work quite well. It took 2 and a half hours to paint.
Soundtrack for this evening was Goldfrapp .
Some psychedelic eye action this time! This one took 3 hours to complete. UPDATE. This painting is now sold.
Soundtrack for this evening was Frank Zappa.
This one was quite an easy one to do. Whenever i think something will be harder and take longer, it usually ends up being the opposite. This one took 3 and a half hours. I haven’t decided on a title yet. Any suggestions?
Soundtrack for this evening was Terry Pratchett’s Feet Of Clay on audio book.
This was another very strange one to work out! It started out as something completely different. It took a while for me to work out where to take it but I’ve ended up here, with a bit of classic surrealism. I’ve called it ‘Door Portrait’. The paint was getting a bit muddy at this point so i had to stop. I did toy around with the idea of placing a tiny figure on the top of the tongue, just in the doorway. This one took 5 hours.
Soundtrack for this evening was kt Tunstall and Kathryn Williams.
I’m just about half way through my February painting challenge now. It’s really great to see a new body of work building up in such a short space of time. Even though the paintings are random ideas without one particular theme running through them, they seem to sit nicely together when laid out together. People have been asking if i am going to exhibit the work, which has inspired me to look into putting on a show. February – 29 paintings in 29 days. Could be a goer 🙂
