Week 11: Cat

I don’t know if anyone noticed, but I changed the theme for this week. It was originally ‘perspective’, but as I attempted to measure everything out in perspective and learn all about horizon lines and vanishing points, my art did what it normally does and took on its own form. As I finished it I got frustrated and decided to swap a few of my challenge themes for better ones. So Cat, as boring as some may think, is my theme for this week.

I used Indian ink for the whole thing, making different textures and different shapes. I’m actually really proud of this one and may mess around with it on Photoshop. Let me know what you think and if this is the type of thing I should do more often. Leave a like, share and follow me!

University Paintings

Although I prefer to draw, I did have my painting phase in University. I do every now and then revisit painting, but mainly using ink and watercolour paints in a style I can draw around. In this blog I am exhibiting five paintings from my first and second years of University. They are all completely different styles due to my lack of planning when I come face to face with a canvas. Most of the time I just wing it. I feel like Art University was a complete waste of time and I still have no idea what I am doing; sometimes it works, other times I just murder a canvas.

The first two images are from my final project of first year, I decided to make maps out of flowers and faces. The last three are from the first semester of second year, for which I decided to do a project on mental health. Check out the paintings below and let me know what you think!
