I thought I would share with you some of the work I have created over the last few years that I have had hidden away. Almost all of it has never been seen by anyone before and its not really in my usual chirpy sketchstitch style.
I'm just trying to find my way at the moment but I think its going to take a while. This will be the darkest stuff you ever see from me (I hope) but I am working on a body of work at the moment that has some similar creatures to the ones found in some of these paintings- but with a lighter feel.
These paintings were done in oil and its amazing how your style can change so much with different paint- I usually use gouache for a more controlled approach. I start slapping it all over the place when I work in oil. I'm going to start uploading a lot more of the work I do for myself from now on (instead of shoving it under the bed).
I think so far Ive only really shown cushions Ive been working on or artwork relating to whats for sale on folksy. These paintings are much more personal to me.
