Birdman

At my local Art group we had a lecture and demonstration on sculpture using papiermachie  by a local artist Annie Wootton , it was one of those lectures where you go away thinking, I’ll have a go at that!

Easy materials and  a little mess made it  very appealing, I had an idea  for a super hero character using comic books, so I started  out to make the figure, using aluminium foil and covering it  in  masking tape, there it stopped no comic books so it went in a box  waiting for the day I picked some up.

Easter break from my art class and  we are  encouraged to try something new, out comes my super hero but with no comics, I set about making some modifications, and ended up with Birdman.

I might still find those comics and have a go at my super hero idea.

Pathways

We have come to the end of our art class pathways project, its been another interesting term first looking at perspective line and colour, then looking at maps and aerial views  finished up exploring something alternative.

Working with the idea that the body is  full of pathways, I found some vintage anatomy illustrations  and used these as the starting point for my painting,

Had a go using acrylic inks on paper in a very loose style, with big brushes and many layers, I am pleased with the results and it should create some reactions on the little gallery wall : )
