I did this set of illustrations for the charity Scottish Adoption, for their new website and to put on walls in their offices. After lots of plants lately, it’s been nice to do figurative things again!
I’m showing some new work at Sutor Creek restaurant in Cromarty. It has been a struggle to get it organised, in between teaching and doing freelance illustration work, but the pictures went up today (on till Christmas) and opening is tomorrow night! Here’s a wee glimpse:
These new artworks focus on the fascinating tangle of seedlings and weeds to be found in a garden. Ever changing layers of vegetation create a rich confusion of line, shape and colour. Mixed media images are created using all sorts of materials, from collage and paint, to linen and graphite powder.
I’m doing some paintings in the garden, enjoying getting lost in the damp tangle of leaves and flowers.
The IF word this week is ‘puzzled‘, but I think this is as close as I’m going to get! This drawing I did today has the look of an alphabet puzzle, is that allowed? This is one of several ideas for a new mural at my daughters’ school – each letter would show a different aspect of the school (there would be no gaps in the kids’ one, I just ran out of time today!) I’m kicking off the project at an Assembly tomorrow… hope they get inspired by what I’ve got to show them!
Here’s another idea, helped by Ruby. Also a bit ‘puzzled’ in style… This time all the activities which go on in the Hall where the mural will be. All the artwork will be by the kids, this is just to show them some options.
