Gentle still lifes

 I've been away from this blog for many months.  In case you're wondering I've been far from idle as studying for a fine art degree has been pretty full on.  So a nice gentle start back here with some small mixed media abstracts that kept me awake one night this week.

 I never throw anything away.  Small scraps of painted papers formed the basis of these compositions after watercolour washes applied.

 Left over gouache on a palette for more opaque dense areas.

Final details added with Inktense pencils.

May be I should work nocturnally more often.  I liked the quiet, dimmed lights and the sense I was working in secret.

You can email me for information about anything you see.  A small collection of work can also sometimes be seen in my Etsy shop.

Hi Julie! Good to see you too! I'm having a pause with formal degree study just now. But hope to be adding insights of studio work to the blog now and again.
Lovely to hear from you!
