Double Down Paintbook Saturday

…..because I’m not 100% happy with this image….

…it’s a bit sparsey for my liking….I think turning the skulls in particular directions opened up the gaps between a bit much….

…looks fine if you lean into it…

….but…yeah/nah and on to the next thing….

…also…. feeling “didn’t-post-last-week-shame”….

…so here’s a paintbook bonus….

….initial plan with template “superimposed”….

…and it ends up looking like…..

…whole thing will be circular if I get time to take it further….I think I had lazy-susans in mind…

Midweek Flutterdie Drop

….post hol’s catchup….

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….
