Starting to get a little ‘quirky’ into my still-life paintings, yay happy.
I am a little known for the quirky collage and wall art that I make.
Usually a little surreal, some juxtaposing of scale or something unexpected (that kind of thing).
So I found it really hard to just present bottles, jugs, fruit in still-life paintings and that’s when I questioned whether it was boring or not. I layered the backgrounds, scratched into surfaces, knocked back colours to bring the image back to a more neutral tone plus a few other techniques. I have been encouraged by people on my blog, on instagram and in person so many thanks. This is the most recent one I have done and I feel really good about it because it is not the usual kind of set up. Yay a bit silly…
