I wrote a blog a little while ago about my new project based around the seven deadly sins. It will be a big project as I am going to do seven paintings, however I do like a challenge! My first painting is going to be Vanity and I have been doing some preliminary sketches and research on ideas. I want it to reflect my current painting style but also show an obvious development towards something new. My paintings over the last few years or so are very stylised and almost cartoonish, but now I want to combine that with something a bit more realistic and toned down. It will be interesting to see how it will work.
I had a major filling done this week so I’ve not been feeling very well. This and working means I’ve not done as much art as I would have liked, but it is a three day weekend starting tomorrow so hopefully I will be able to get back into it again.
I sketched onto the canvas earlier which can be daunting sometimes, but I know this is the very beginning and once I start painting, it will all come together.
