Another day, another mural by an infamous street artist. Only this time its on the wall of the building where I work. Here it is in all its – already defaced – glory.
It seemed to be lacking something for me. Maybe it was the monochrome, maybe it was tarnished by the vandalism (vandalising graffiti, that’ll never get old…) but what it really had was 100% less lasers than I thought it needed
I reckon the Banksies could have tried a bit harder to be honest. I mean, its only really black and white… so I thought I’d man up and finish off the job. Here you go lovey…
For good measure, here’s how it looked (courtesy of bbc.co.uk/news via Banksy.co.uk) before someone decided to spray black paint all over one side, almost entirely missing the painting. Which wasn’t a deliberate publicity stunt or anything. Nuh-uh. No way sirree bob.
I was talking to a friend at work about this pic, which hung for nearly 6 months on the wall outside of the staff common room at my secondary school when I was doing A-levels. I think I must have been 17… feck. Twenty years ago 0_o
I can’t find the original scan, but this will do. I cut in a few extra bits (read slapped them over the top willy nilly) a few years later.
Here are my arts for this week. Please look at them with your face.
Not being able to take decent photos of my arts is really starting to bake my noodle… *calls photographer friend…
Which reminds me. Chris – don’t know if you read this thing, but good shout on looking at the black and white views to see how the colour values work. Interesting…
Here are my arts. Please use your face to inspect them with your eyes.
I made a painting for my mum because she is ill.
Her Grand-daughters first pair of little red shoes.
Here are my arts. Please inspect them with your face.
One of those rare sessions tonight where I actually enjoyed painting AND am happy with the results. Clem likes the second one (apparently is a better composition and less fussy) and I am keen on the first.
Here is my arts. For your eyes to look with. Here.
I’m sticking to using canvas and acrylics for the time being, so I’ve painted up a bunch of backgrounds in preparation for the Autumn term starting next Thursday
Will be fun to see what happens…
Not sure I’m going to be able to finish this off. My brain hurts.
I’ve always found colour theory tough (probably why I avoided colour for so long…) so I thought I’d have a play and mix Process CMYK acrylic colour palettes and see what happens.
Life drawing starts again next week so I’ve been preparing a load of coloured canvasses recently. This colour study has given me some ideas on how to use colours. Will post a pic of the canvasses soon, interesting stuff to come.
I did a quick study of Boudie’s shoes. Maybe two or three hours ish, acrylics on canvas.
