Mermaid and a peacock

Of late I have been doing an unusual balance of more drawing type things than textile crafts.

A few weeks ago I did a one night painting class, using acrylics and spray paint. It was fantastic. Everything was already prepared, and the teacher broke down each step of the process enough to make it very easy to follow. Each of us ended up with a variety of colours, shapes and styles, and it was interesting to see how we all interpreted the brief differently. Here is the progression of my painting:

Blank canvas

IMAG0192

Acrylic and water to create the background

IMAG0193

Fill in the base of the painting

IMAG0194

Spray paint

IMAG0196

Fix up the over-spray, and shade in details

IMAG0197

I’ve also been relishing in having my 50 colour pencils back. So I made this for my friend’s birthday. The colour is a little off in a couple photos and makes the background appear pink, rather than white.
