OIL PAINTING has returned into my life

No nibs= Drawing with a Carrot

Carrots really are surprisingly good for painting with. Slightly absorbent and you can carve them into any shape you like for your painting needs.

Lots of Drawing

Lastly, I visited the Russell Cotes Museum in Bournemouth, which had loads of interesting Japanese war craft.

I watched I really interesting documentary called Human Planet. It's basicly about how humans have and are adapting to the world. The episode I watched was about how we have adapted to the sea. This made me imagine how a Giraffe would cope in the ocean. Also, my favourite mug broke..  

Fingers in all the pies? I think so. 

Paul Davis gave a really intriguing talk at the university that I found really inspiring. He mentioned putting paper on his wall and drawing. So I did just that. I'm also creating a montage of post-it notes of people faces, soon to be featuring.

Drawing with a Paint Brush

Experimenting mostly with different ways of drawing, I decided to bin my fine liner and use a brush instead. I also graced the streets of London a few weeks back, which I found visually really inspiring!

I didn't really feel satisfied with a Collage workshop I was doing... so I made a small Graphic story board of a man who has a snake for a tongue... more to come.

Oh... the suburbs...

I wanted to try an accurate style like the previous images, but at the same time create more of an atmosphere.


These two images I based on the novel 'The Outsider' by Albert Camus. I wanted to create a jarring atmosphere and emphasise the characters alienation from his society.
