An interesting month, which sees my first born kiddo complete his primary education. Please see boy with the biggest hair! Can't believe this moment has come and Gabriel will be off to high school in September! Thanks Bunscoill Ghaelgagh! What an amazing school, such a great start to his education, growth in confidence, properly nurtured talents and the gift of two languages! Can't thank enough for this proper care! Here are a few of my happy students who participated in my trail around the schools spreading a message of mental well being and making some great art! Some of this art will be seen around hoarding where the site of a new state of the art mental health hospital will be built. A perfect opportunity for the children to play with paint and print with abandon, to see their work in a public art project! And still capturing Summer floral wonders.
Transferring sketches into an acrylic painting project
After collecting source, I usually create a number of sketches and then a series of developmental drawings to use in a project. The painting below has been created with an intuitive abstract background and then I have added these illustrative floral elements, capturing the bright display of Summer.
I am a mixed media artist, art tutor and motivator and live in the Isle of Man, sharing a few things about my life and work! E-courses and online art motivation workshops coming soon!
