So I have launched three new prints today. They are the culmination of several days work, I had hoped to launch all four but unfortunately the fourth seems to be taking a while to come together and I really didn’t fancy holding off on the other three for the last one, so alas it is a set of three again!
They are all really a development of several different ideas but using a similar style, with mixed media. I didn’t fancy working large scale on a canvas so instead I decided to paint directly on to board, quicker and easier to prep then canvas and as it turns out easier to post as well!
Now my only concern is how to mount the originals, as the board is fairly thin….mmmm another dilemma…any and all ideas very welcome!
Well I thought I should write a post as it’s been a while since I’ve been on here! My apologies for being away so long, but I have been very extremely busy with a number of projects, many of which I hope to be able to post properly about over the coming weeks!
I have been spending a lot of time painting on both canvas and wood to create some new pieces for my Filiadavidus shop on Etsy, I hope to launch the new pieces, both originals and print versions, later this week!! It’s very exciting! I also have a couple of canvases that I will put prints up of, one of which I’m very happy with so I may just post a photo of in the next couple of days, look out for that.
One of my prints, Thoughtful, has just won the Daily Challenge over on the Etsy Challenge Blog, which I am very pleased with, it has also generated a lot of extra traffic so hopeful it’ll sell soon, fingerscrossed!
So today I launched two more Shoo prints in my Etsy shop, ‘The Light Wedges’ print and ‘The Black Bow Flats’ print. As these are a development idea and are really only the initial sketches and paintings, they are quite rough and perhaps not as finished as popular commercial prints are supposed to be, so I’m not sure how they are going to do. So, I have decided to take a break from this, to create some new female illustrations like I was doing before.Here are the images and the links to the two prints, The Light Wedges and The Black Bow Flats…
I have been working on a series of new pieces of work, these last few days to launch in my filiadavidus shop on Etsy. Most of the pieces are working out the way I’d hoped, but inevitably there are some that just didn’t work. This is one of them, I’m not sure whether to sell this piece, perhaps I can work further digitally to get the look I’m after…mmmm or maybe I should just leave it? The problem with me is that I dislike having illustrations that are left, I feel I should be able to take something tangible away from it. Especially when it’s an image that I like aspects of, but not the whole image.
I don’t know, I think II’ll just throw it out there and see if I can get any feedback (click the image for a larger version) …
