Work on WorkShop

Getting the workshop ‘Thermally Moisture Efficient’.
I.E. Moving away from the damp and the mould, fixing and clearing walls where possible, getting ready for a lining, frame and board.
6 month project to get it fully finished as a working space for all the things I like to do, this is an important step in getting the space working efficiently and productively.

Full wall work bench planned for that back wall.

PLANS.

All the Caines

𝔸𝕝𝕝 π•₯𝕙𝕖 β„‚π•’π•šπ•Ÿπ•–π•€.

Marilyn’d Michael.

Six Stern, No Nonsence Looks that actually know the truth.
Six shades split Twice.
On a uniquly distressed neautral back.
Win,Β  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.

The Bridge

𝕋𝕙𝕖 π”Ήπ•£π•šπ••π•˜π•–. ☠.

Standing Proud.

A symbol of a Place. A unique gateway.
A subject I’ve meant to paint sooner.
The Bridge. Monnow Bridge.
A commission that turned into two. A fun stencil to cut.

Seems like everyone is jumping on the band wagon for everything that comes up.

Dita Von Tease

π”»π•šπ•₯𝕒 π•π• π•Ÿ 𝕋𝕖𝕒𝕀𝕖.

Perfect Fit.

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.

Patriot Caine

Sharing Opinion

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.

Clevedon Pier

Playing with lot’s of things.

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.

From the movie with my own twists.

I quite like the live action remake, was a good homage to the original anime, hopefully they do stand alone etc.
Also been a while since i’ve done a scarlett johansson piece.

Background covered in pages from japanesse special literature and comic books and two vinyl stickers.

Not that many layers involved in this one but a stink load of detail on layers 2, 3 and 4. Thought it worth documenting.
