Hi....Frejasphere....

Like those ink drawings...#56 +#61 are my favorites...all of them are nice really...
Would be great to see you put one of your studies done from this forum, sometime down the road...onto a piece of ceramic....might turn out really nice.... ...just a thought
Really like that plate that you posted....kind of Picassoish ....I like the bright colors, and flat devided areas of color, combined with the flowing line of the hair ect....nice bold effect...
Looking forward to seeing more of your works...

TAKE CARE
Glenn

Hey Frejasphere

Muchothanx for the kind words in my sb.

Good looking drawings, really like them. Remember to have your lines flow around your forms - this will add more depth it them. In the Durer studies you have acjieved this very well, Durer is awesome. Also maybe try to get a wash effect - this helps to establish some basic tones ... up to you.

Good works mate, keep 'em coming man!

ciao!

Hi again all

Thought I'd post a few of my own works for a change... ie not heads

these are acrylic on canvas and were done a few months back, the figure was part of a series where I fragmented the body increasingly through the use of colour.. first one being the least fragmented...

the next one is symbolic... moving through the levels of consciousness in one's mind, dreams and memories, yet guided by the part of self that always watches and knows that one can go through things and be ok..

the last one is about the cycle of life and death.. the elements always playing a large part in life, death and rebirth








Life Cycle - 90x90cm

Oh I'd better hit submit before I chicken out

cheers all and enjoy drawing, painting and creating

Hi Freja - FYI photobucket is hosing these images right now. Just a bunch of little "photobucket sucks" icons : ) I would really like to see the images, the few pieces I can see look really good. Rock on.

Hey there se7en

thanks for popping in and saying hi

Not quite sure what you mean about hosing the images... as I can see them bit new to this side of things so might have made a mistake somewhere along the line....

Just hope this doesn't mean that deleting images from the photobucket site means they disappear here?????

hmmmm

anyways... thanks heaps for comments
cheers a.

Hi all again

Biggest doh(!) experience as far as posting images... oh well - I AM here to learn think it's sorted now and thanks for prompts.










these ones were part of the 50 heads, most were posted there, just thought I'd put them up here as well - they don't appear in order completed

cheers all
a.

Hey Frejaspere

Great painting - very expressive, colours are well done! These last heads are really good too, much better feel for line and form. Durer is amazing and definitely one to study. Can't really see anything big to crit, so I'll just say keep drawing as this journey never ends - even dudes like Mentler are learning new things every day. Looking forward to more!

ciao

Humbled big time by very kind words from you guys

Big thanks to both of you Sabrina and demented for popping back in, appreciate your comments and having visitors is always nice.

Journey is endless, and worst critic tends to be myself...(yet can totally fail to see things others do, which is why the c&c coffee is so great), finding a balance between creation and exposure can be hard.. so on it goes with a constant need to get those images in head out on to the canvas, paper... and maybe, maybe sometime in the future try the digital world

Have a great day all, from the (to break the heatwave pattern ) wintery land down under

a.
