An Exception To The Back Log

…template “d”…

…at least I think it’s template “D” … template “C”, currently in use in the sketchbook, is the one back there on the post-it notes…yep, must be template “D”)….

….and this is what it’s for….

…a quick study on A3 paper,  in water colour before I move to board and paint…

…(major props to wordpress artist Nick who mentioned using water colour on his latest stuff…that triggered “hey, I need to see if this idea works and know it won’t fit in paintbook and I don’t want to take weeks doing it at A3 in paint that takes 40 minutes to dry between applications so why not see if you can make a new medium work”….result!…you can find Nick at

…thank you Nick…)…

…detail?…why of course…

…shit…guess I’ve committed to this being the next thing I work on….

P.S…..first time in an age that I’ve posted something within one hour of finishing…

A Bit Of A Flutter

…ditched the square lower wing option….

…the labels are all on seperate bits of paper….to give a “kids-labelled-insect-collection” kinda feel to the piece….

…if you’re looking for the indigo, it’s the background colour of the wings….

Stalled

…goddamn it…

…can’t seem to get enough time, energy, table saw, palm sander and sunshine aligned to get that big secret elephant in the room completed….

…so here’s an excerpt from paintbook that may become the next big secret not finished project….

….mmmm….flutterdies….

…based on the traditional (mid century) wooden butterfly nailed to every other house in New Zealand in the 60s and 70s….

….and the set of stamps that I blogged about here….
