Work in progress Me Holding the Moon…

In this artwork for the upcoming Blue Ghosts exhibition in London, October 2016, I’ve illustrated and begun painting. Prior to beginning the painting, I digitally coloured the sketched artwork to test colour matchings and match paint colours! The result is below….. The real painted version will be finished very soon.

About the artwork – I’m holding the moon, as a sign of love and nurturing and belief that we should all love each other and give world peace. Other symbols in the artwork mean freedom, space, humbleness (flowers on floor) and respect for ourselves and our surrounds. The mediums for the painting are gouache, acrylic, watercolour, ink, and soft pastel – all which enhance the colour and expression of the story.

An artist who draws and paints using many different mediums. Art is my world and everything. I also have a love for VW beetles and kombies as well as odd things like rubix cubes and small old fashioned birdcages (not for the use of them! Rather for the look of them - I don't like locking up animals in small cages or confinements).
