Mediative Drawings
 

Drawing is thinking in a visual form, it is a way of slowing down, observing and bringing a quiet contemplation and attention to the present moment in time, in doing it can so produce a calm engagement with the world.

In between painting on canvas, whilst new layers dry; I have been quietly drawing on paper using watercolour, as a way to slow down and some quiet contemplation. 

 These drawings reflect my recent interest that observing and spending time in nature can affect our well-being positively, resulting in a enhanced sense of calm and reduce anxiety. It is these healing and positive feelings I have tapped into whilst on nature and whilst drawing.

When drawing these organic, botanical shapes repeatedly they work as mediative quiet watercolour drawings, with the intention to enhance well being and provide a sense of peace and calm. Observing natural forms helps alleviate stress wether in nature or on paper.

I shall be releasing a small collection of these drawings, to be notified on new art and to stay up to date with upcoming exhibitions and events you can sign up to the studio newsletter below.

Studio Series - Flower Garden Video

I've been busy creating a new body of work for a new series called 'Flower Gardens'. Whilst painting I take photos to document the process for myself and also to share online, I find it useful to try and see it with fresh eyes, and seeing it through a lens can achieve this new perspective.  

Each painting becomes a journey, as I work intuitively I never know where its going to end up, once finished I look back and see all the different layers, marks and colours interact and sometimes I think,'I did'nt do that',  it sometimes feels unconscious.  I get into a flow state where hours pass by where I  am mixing and painting colours, responding to the previous marks on canvas. Once I step back I see the new layer unfold, the painting grows before my eyes. I've been wanting to try and document this journey and filming is a way to achieve this. I am working out how to do this without it being intrusive to the creating.

So for now I have been documenting parts of the creative process, here is my first video showing more of the process of how the colour studies, flower studies and painting on canvas all build up to the final piece. Its a start and theres a lot to improve on, but I'm excited to video more of my inspirations and process in the studio in a way for me to learn more, and to share more with you about my practise.

If you want to be notified about new work, and more about my process and upcoming events, you can subscribe to my art newsletter, which  I send out about once or twice  a month, if you're interested you can subscribe here...

Matisse's 'Goldfish' is a reminder to be present.
matisse-goldfish-painting-art-1912

This painting 'Goldfish' 1912 by Matisse has been inspiring my new series. The colours, brush strokes and the focus of looking at a small moment; the fish swimming.  Matisse is inviting us to stop and be present to this moment, to enjoy the colours, the movement of the fish, to just be for a second. This has inspired and helped me to understand my new work which has been based on flower gardens.

The pleasure of being present to small moments of nature everyday, such as the full bloom of flowers,leaves moving in the wind, the colours of a garden, these moments have inspired my new work. It is with that intention that I created this new series, to sooth, calm, inspire and energise, art just like nature can have a soothing and calming affect on the mind

summer series - inspiration

Inspiration and mood for my new summer series, I've been inspired by the full bloom of flower garden's, I've enjoyed cretaing warmer paintings inspired by Monet's waterlilies. This summer series has given me a new approach towards my paintings, using impressionist style of brushstrokes, mixed with my favourite artists Howard Hodgkin and Joan mitchell use of expression in colour and emotion, I'm excited to show the new paintings in the next few weeks. To be updated on when the pieces will be available online you can sign up to my newsletter below this post.
