I love it when a simple doodle turns out to be a fun design you really love. This week I was doodling with a black pen and ended up with a moonrise against a starry night sky behind some snow topped mountains. I cropped the sky into a triangular/pyramid shape to add some geometry to it, made some photocopies and prepared image transfers with acrylic medium. Before transfering them on to the wood blocks I prepared the backgrounds with a simple gradient of green and peach which ended up showing nicely through the starry skies.
The photos make the artworks look bigger than they are so you have to imagine them as small things, easy to hold in your hand!
What do you think of them?
This lil guy is the last of my series of four 6 x 6 paintings that are for sale for $45. I always find it interesting to see which ones are people's favourites, as this was one of my personal favourites, but the last one to go! I think it's mostly the sweet peas part that I like, because they always reming me of my mom, and recently I found out that they were my Nana's favourite flower! How cool is that! Anyway if you're interested, it will be residing at my house for now. The best thing about these guys is that you can just sit them on a shelf rather than hang them if you haven't decided where to put them yet. Apparently more 6 x 6 wood canvases will be coming in this week to our local craft store Creative Zone so I can go pick up a few more to do. My next flower is going to be the Nightshade. I am very excited about this:)
