A Book Of Paint

…….having got sick of trying to squish ever expanding ideas into an A5 sketchbook and (worse) waiting for paint to dry before I could accomodate further “musings” I went out and purchased this A4 paintbook……..

…now I can sketch in paint to my hearts content…

…(when the last coat has dried)….

…here we go….

…cover….

….frontispiece….(alternatively titled “frontispiece in progress” or “the bit where I write notes to self” or “the inside of the cover”)…..

….paint one….

….paint two….

…paint three….

…paint four….

…paint five….

…coming soon…

….the rise of template “B”….

Still Avoiding That Finished Artwork

… gonna build up to it like it was the coolest thing.

…here’s a stray from the “Duck! Duck! Duck! series…. it was tentatively titled “Madonna’s Den Wallpaper”…..Scan 96

 

…sad eyes… ooo those sad eyes…

… they ¬†almost had me donating to a “support a foreign kid” charity on the TV….

…till I realised the kid on the TV was a NZ kid and my tax dollars were already failing to support him/her…

…sad eyes.

(rest of the “Duck! Duck! Duck!” drawings are handily categorised …. see bottom of page….. avoid sad eye contact)

 

 

…sad eyes.

Scan 25

 

…maybe the eyeballs would look better on this background?…. he mused….

 

(yes this is leading somewhere… more tomorrow…)
