Paint, Text

Pictures Talking

Here’s something new! Sprung from a creative afternoon on the sofa with Angela Chick, and a donation of paints from a much-missed Grandpa, I made these.

That last one there is my favourite, and I’d like to do this on a large scale. All the above were made using wall-paint as the speech bubble – to help get that stark edge, which I want more practice at. The orange text is with watercolour and the thinest brush ever. Slight issue with magazine paper going wrinkly with the paint, may try ironing the paper after painting. Now need to collect more B&W images of people at parties, having a nice time.

Top Notch paintings

Yesterday, paints out (wall paint, powdered Indian paint, lacquer, pencils, pins to scrape with and graphic pens) to make one very small painting for a fundraiser for Bristol’s Cruse Berevement Care, to take the form of an anonymous exhibition, each piece A5. More about that here. 

Liking the words ‘Top Notch’ and wanting to write them everywhere.

Painting on chairs

An idea for painting chairs came after seeing some of Hernan Paganini‘s work. He uses a lot of natural materials and this installation: ‘Anthill’ gave me lovely ideas of re-painting old wooden chairs, a bit of restoration so they don’t squeak and groan, then delicately painting rings around the legs, and strips of color across the seat and backs. There will be lots of white, just tiny accents of selective colours. I can’t wait to get to it! These chairs are going to be found from the reclaimers and used for my Light Box workshops. We need about 30 of them, eek! Time to hunt for volunteers!
