BEGINNING!!!

complete change, starting tomorrow!!! going to be hard but fun!!!

More Shell Drawings..........>>

Some more shell drawings - much hard composition
1st - graphite pencil
2nd - pastel pencils (don't like using them, especially being left handed its almost impossible not to smudge it)

Quote of Yesterday

"One day I submerged my feet in the sand, and the world became my shoes"

Same shell - 3 ways...

Same shell but I drew it in 3 different mediums just to get some practise...
1st - graphite pencil
2nd - ink
3rd - watercolour pencils

ENJOY!



Stylised self portrait...?

I started with the intentions of some sort of self portrait but in the end it doesn't really look anything like me so its just a pencil sketch.

Origami balls

........... I think I'm getting a little obsessed with origami.... I got given a book with some amazing designs in it!.... here are a couple that I've made...
LOTS of squares of paper

COLOUR HARMONY

COLOUR IS A POWER THAT DIRECTLY INFLUENCES THE SOUL. COLOUR IS THE KEYBOARD, THE EYE THE HAMMER, THE SOUL IS THE PIANO WITH MANY STRINGS. THE ARTIST IS THE HAND WHICH PLACES, TOUCHING ONE KEY OR ANOTHER TO CAUSE VIBRATION IN THE SOUL. IT IS THEREFORE EVIDENT THAT COLOUR HARMONY MUST REST ONLY ON A CORRESPONDING VIBRATION IN THE HUMAN SOUL...

Modern Art...

INKY!!

Playing around with black ink - I used leaves as brushes
(Indian black ink)

Spider Web!!

A spider web I wound in my front garden, it had been raining for hours so the spider web had been covered in water droplets - so pretty!!


Watercolouring during my uni holidays....

The piece in 57cm x 75cm, done using watercolours and watercolour pencils
I actually really really like how it came out!


More time filling/wasting during the uni holidays

Acrylic painting - I applied the black painting straight out of the bottle and let it dry completely then filled in the white around the black with various colours...



From WAY back

A piece from my year 12 Art folio. 52cm x 75cm watercolour

Visual Arts - Semester 2 brief 2

My 'All Naturals' Nike kicks, created it by moulding the base from a 'ready to use paper mache mix'. Then used a variety of leaves, ALOT of superglue and time to put it all together

My Lights - Visual Arts - Semester 2 - Brief 1

Origami paper lights - 40 squares of paper for each ball - I created 3 lights - each one is approximately 20cm in diameter
