It has been a funny old week ( or so..). I started on a small painting of a fox, but this only resulted in me having a wobble and almost unable to understand my paint, brushes..putting any image together. I decided to take a stepback and ditch painting anything for a few days. During this time, I put myself on Saatchi art. Fingers, toes & curlies all crossed that this will give me some form of exposure. ' Z ' also sold, and this evening trotted off to his new home in London Town where from what I am told, he will be deeply loved.
Today, I got back on the painting wagon..and any uncertainties seem to have evaporated. My mojo was fairly happy and confident again. For sometime I have not been terribly happy with a gorilla painting I completed at the end of last year. At several points I have thought about painting over it...but today I got stuck in and completely reworked him. Very pleased with the textures I got down, and the big fella has a lot more strength. He is in the shop...and will be put on Saatchi too.
Following on from that I got stuck into a new canvas, and this ( in theory..in my peanut head ) will be an Osprey. The aim is to have him look as though flying down from the corner of the canvas. Quite a challenge in that birds aren't often something I would paint..but I fancy the challenge and if the painting comes together it will be striking.
I'm quite looking forward to tomorrow.
Also in the pipeline are another cow and somemore nudes. Time to keep the creative process flowing..
