Painting Series
« on: November 17, 2015, 03:24:19 am »
Hey guys, recently I completed my first-ever painting series. I'll just post a link here instead of spagging up the place with giant images: https://www.flickr.com/photos/46049981@N03/albums/72157658468792505

They're ten paintings, and all of them are done with spray paint and acrylics.

Wow, I like these very, very much! This is my favorite:

I also like the papaver somniferum one quite a lot.

Thank you! And nice species identification there.  :wink:

Right now I am in the midst of that demotivation and vague sense of depression you get when you finish a big project and then have no idea what comes next. But actually I do know what's next, and that is getting my artwork out to a larger audience. Currently that involves making prints and hopefully getting a gallery to show my work. But the whole "marketing yourself" part of things fills me with dread. Time to drum up the chutzpah!

Very nice. And it turns out I like the same one as Nigel.

Really awesome stuff!  :fnord:

The simple perfection of those forms gives them this instantly iconic look that is pretty spectacular.

Best wishes!
