Hair brush on the couch

Hair brush on couch

The couch is a bit rough (I decided to add that after drawing the brush), but I’m pleased that I managed to capture the bristles of the brush reasonably well. And the perspective’s not too bad, either.

I bought my first larger canvas (12×16″) last week, and I have an idea for using it, so keep an eye out for a painting on that here soon. 🎨🖌️🙂

Quotes

Our high school teachers weren’t going far enough when they spoke of the symbol as one artistic device among others: the symbol is the very stuff of art.

Practising trees and clouds

Tree and clouds

Or rather, a tree and clouds. I didn’t really think about composition with this one. Too much to think about with colour mixing and just trying to get something that resembled a real scene onto the paper. Always learning!

My sixth project from Little Ways to Learn Acrylics. The border should have been a lot subtler, so the blue showed through more. Not quite a Rothko. 🙂
