Lady in orange

head of woman with orange dress on blue backgroundA new addition to my monoprint portraits. This woman was on a multi-coloured collaged background but that had been painted out so the orange is set starkly against the light blue. Mixed media work with collage. Image size about 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm).

A suitable picture for Easter and spring. Hope we see the sun… Image 5.5×7.25 inches. This is a mixed media painting which I completed while following an online course with Diane Culhane. There aren’t enough hours in the day to do all the painting I want to – all such fun.

It’s available as a print, greeting card or phone case.

A monotype worked in several layers of gouache on Arches paper. The design is loosely based on a picture of an old turf cutting which is said to represent deities. It is from the Gog Magog Hills – an area steeped in tales of mysterious appearances, buried giants and ghosts. (The name ‘hills’ is slightly misleading as they are not very high: just definitely above the flat plain and therefore giving a commanding view.)

Artwork is 7.5×5.5 inches (19×14 cm).

A collaged pattern of pieces cut from prepared papers and stuck on a monotype background. The theme was suggested by a couple of the shapes but the pattern is abstract really and is one of an experimental set using simplified 3-tone versions of photographs as a starting point. 7×5 inches (18×13 cm).

I had this framed and Adam the framer said it was foxes so I renamed it Vulpes vulpes! But it’s still listed under the old title here.

Most of my current collages are made with decorated papers I prepare myself but this one I ‘made earlier’ has always been one of my favourites. The shape of the house is more-or-less as it should be but it was actually black and white.   The collaged additions are not Caribbean!
