Something from last week, inspired by the film “Let the Right One In”. Acrylic, printed material and graphite on wood panel.

So whats up.
I think i’ve been on a bit of a detour of late. I’ve been trying out a few new ideas and techiniques, some have worked a lot haven’t.
There’s been a fair few paintings added to the trash, but it’s all good – i think I’ve got to a point I can come back to what i enjoy doing most and bring something of a new perspective to it (well, in my head it’s a new perspective, quite likely it all looks exactly the same to everyone else!)
I’m working with 1xRun on putting together a timed edition print run of a new piece. Still finalising which one, but very excited to see it happen over the next couple of months.
My painting for the Vices show at London Miles was sent off and framed this week – just in time for the show to be put back. Gah! At least for once I’m all done and ready way in advance of a deadline.
Anyhow, here’s a taster of some of the stuff I’ve been working on. Hope you like.
I still had a couple of the cutlery drawers laying around and felt they deserved some attention. This fella found his way onto one. I love the qualities the old surface add to the painting, unfortunately I only have one drawer left now.
I’ve been proper busy since I quit my job a just over a week ago.
Busy messing around with some new ideas, and mostly busy finding out that they weren’t going to work. Hey-ho. You live and learn, and I guess that was the whole point of going full time with the art.
I did do a couple of new paintings though. I was particularly happy with this one. Forgive the iPhone pic, the colours are a bit messed up.
So I was recently commissioned to do a piece for a birthday. No skulls, or crows, but I managed to get some dead flowers in instead…
I saw it hung for the first time today and really pleased with how it looks on the wall. Actually seeing a piece in situ seems to bring it to life. I thought I’d share a pic.
Something I’ve been working on over the past week. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, especially the detail in the roses, in my own clumsy ass way.
Acrylic on Rives BFK paper. Fo sho.
More fooling around with some found materials. A couple of drawers from an old cutlery factory. Loving working on the old wood surfaces – so much texture and character, they pretty much paint themselves. I’m hoping to snag a few more, which should keep me busy for a while.
