Six Stern, No Nonsence Looks that actually know the truth.
Six shades split Twice.
On a uniquly distressed neautral back.
Win, Whats all the distraction for!
Get out but not really yet at the moment.
Sort of if you like maybe next tomorrow.
6. When it gets so stupid it’s laughable, stop, re-group, focus on the important points.
This years pretty lady piece, Dita Von Tease, another one that when I saw the picture I thought about the placement on the canvas more than anything.
Was very tempted to do a cross behind, maybe in a subsequent spraying.
Also one of only two where I have started with a black background and it works really well with the colour tone.
The little bit of under spray probably actually helps it come off the black a little, I don’t think it spoils it at least.
Delving into the whole pop art / political opinion arena whilst also creating a portrait of one of the UK’s (and the world’s) best actor’s, Sir Michael Caine.
I have a lot of respect for what this gentleman has to say about recent event’s in the UK, it’s not about race, religion or origin, it’s about a country being able to make its own decisions about what it does, funds, law’s, let’s in, let’s out.
It’s very rare that I do personnel opinion work and share it publically here but I just couldn’t bite my tounge on this one.
When I saw this photo of Clevedon Pier I immediately loved the symmetry especially after thinking of the idea of putting it on a square canvas. Also tried an idea that has been brewing to play with and separate the colour tone’s into two.
2 layers for the sky
5 layers for the pier
51cm x 51cm canvas
The Monnow River run’s right through, We are not a place without it.
2 months of nearly solid 6 day’s a week cutting out card to produce this piece.
A Photo that I took a few years ago that has been Digitally Modified , Printed onto Paper, Trimmed and stuck down onto 4 A0 Layers of heavy weight card, Then hand drawn and hand cut and aerosol sprayed one at a time to create a River Scene that is just down the road.
Not that many layers involved in this one but a stink load of detail on layers 2, 3 and 4. Thought it worth documenting.
Mash Up Wall Number 2 started.
Work got bigger than the space that was left on Mash Up Wall Number 1 so started a new one.
Some old canvasses re-done with white and colour splash then a shiny chrome and florescent spread of stripes from top left to bottom right.
Had to add four other canvas to add all I wanted to add so I did a match opposite partly.
The Ivy’s all together with good security and watching eyes. And room for the next one’s.
Dave the Cat is one of the best, he’s getting on in years now and needs and definitely gets daily love 🙂 my little ginger O.G.
As long as he’s kicking he will be immortalized on canvas once a year, with spray paint and card.
Going on the House wall (and probably duplicated onto the Workshop Wall and most likley the Mash Up Wall too)
