What Big eyes you Have ?
I wanted to share what has been inspiring me in my latest paintings and sketch book rambles.
The wonderful and Kitsch Art from the 60's and 70's
It's cute but has a creepy edge to it i feel.
The dear sweet joy of Strawberry Shortcake
you can't fail to be inspired by her.
She makes me smile !
The Japanese style of Gyaru is a huge uproar of girly-glam style, breaking all the rules of "what's pretty" and dwelling in a party of man-made beauty.
I am constantly inspired by all thats around me but have found the theme of dolls and big eyes have taken me down some interesting paths.
This is the beginnings of a mix media piece i started
Using a whole range of supplies, such as Gesso, Neon Pink paint, Gel matte, Alcohol inks
pencils, spray paint and stencils
and here is where i ended up !
I have lots more paintings to share but for now i will keep them under wraps for the re opening of my Etsy shop*. This new direction is making me feel so excited ( once i get past the negative super critical thinking)
I can't wait to get all my ideas out, get covered in paint and just let go on the canvas ! and i do hope you are all enjoying this new direction.
What has been inspiring you lately ?
Have you tried any new art/craft products ?
Hoping that you have sunshine in your part of the world !
Be Great to hear from you
