Dragonscale Paintings: Sweet Pea

12 June, 2017
Here’s another of my abstract paintings…

I loved playing around with this colour. In my paint box it’s actually purple. But painting onto very wet paper dilutes the colour. The overall effect makes me think of wild sweet peas – that mass of pinkness!
I was inspired by Elisa Choi Ang’s workshops over at SkillShare Why don’t you try Elisa’s workshops? She makes painting accessible to everyone!

Dragonscale Paintings – 20170307

7 March, 2017
I’ve been trying out new things this year – what do you think of this?

I was inspired by Elisa Choi Ang’s workshops over at SkillShare
I find painting like this very therapeutic – it helps me relax mentally and stimulates my creative flow. I can only produce abstract paintings. I have lost the ability to draw properly – an effect of cancer/chemo perhaps?

Epod Emulation for Elisa Choi Ang

16 January, 2017

Here is another Escape Pod Emulation! A warm welcome to artist, Elisa Choi Ang!
The first of my items to take with me in the escape pod would be my Bible, as to me, it is the only book that matters.
Second would be my laptop as it is where I produce and store most of my work – that is also very important to me.
The third item would be my Art Tool Box as that is where I keep all the art materials I use that I need to make my art.
Fourth would be my wallet containing money that I may need to purchase things with once I reach civilisation again.
And my fifth item would, of course, be my mobile phone, not to call people with, but so that I can take photos!
Elisa Choi Ang is an artist who loves to empower people to make art inspired by their stories. She encourages others to sketch their lives in pen and paint in watercolor.
Elisa now has 2 classes available to participate in at her Online Class (see above link!). Now available is Sketch Your Life 2: Infuse Your Art with Creativity and Imagination This class inspires you to make your artwork engaging and personal to who you are as an artist, by exploring the techniques using one’s creativity, imagination and artistic style..
Come back next week to see the paintings Elisa has produced for me!.
And if you’re wondering what on earth an Escape Pod Interview is all about, please read Escape Pod Emulation.
