Hello everyone. It’s been a long time since my last post, and my style has been on a journey. I’ve evolved as an Artist so much in the last year. Since Christmas I’ve been eager to push my style forward yet again, every few months of working in a particular way has me questioning what I do and how I can make it better. You could say I’ve been going through a bit of an identity crisis.
In the recent couple of months I even went back to working with collage… and although that was fun and some great ideas came out of it, I just missed the freedom of working with ink on paper. In recent weeks I’ve still been re evaluating after going back to drawing straight to paper, I even gave my girls a tan! However I haven’t felt great about the way things where going… nothing felt like it’s the way forward.
Today, after looking back at some very fluid images I created earlier in the year with blocks of diluted ink, I decided to go back to basics. I haven’t been enjoying working with big blocks of colour of late… so I thought I’d go back to working in blacks and whites, with touched of bold colours as accents.
This is one of the images from earlier this year that sparked some creativity today; what inspired me was the quietness, and the subtle interaction between the black/white tones and the small elements of colour. The pieces I’ve created today have really got the spark going again and I think you’re going to enjoy the results.
Watch this space, because I’m going to have some really nice work on the go this summer, I can feel it. 🙂
