Look What I found!





I love delving into the room of requirements and seeing what I turn up with. Note: Always wear shoes when you go in there, you may need to squish a spider!

So these two paintings were done in my first year of uni doing illustration. The brief was to so a series of 12 illustrations for laptop covers…fun! I don’t think i paid any attention to the brief at all and went off an a tangent in the end producing these. I have no idea where the rest are, i have a feeling that i probably threw them out. The top one is quite obviously “Little Red Riding Hood” which I did using oil pastels. The bottom one i think is “Hansel and Gretel” with acrylics. If my memory serves me right, these were the only two that turned out right.

I didn’t half to some rubbish stuff in uni! haha! That being said, I am quite please with these two paintings, I’m not much of a painter in the traditional sense my hands just dont seem to want to do anything which resembles the subject matter. Yep, my hand have a mind of their own.

Take care folks,

  1. its funny looking back at old stuff isn’t it? Sometimes Im pleasantly surpriased, others…! I really like the patterning in these two.

    According to a friend of mine, who paints a lot of detailed paintings http://www.corkbrickgallery.co.uk/dee-nickerson.html the hand thing improves with practise! I amstill waiting 🙂

    • Thank you for leaving the link to your friends site, just had a snoop at her wonderful paintings. God, I wish I could paint like that.

      My problem is that I’m not an overly patient person! 🙂 Plus, I graduated last year and I’m feeling a lot of pressure now to really make something of myself. I’d love to practice my painting though, perhaps when things quieten down a bit and I don’t have to worry about making mistakes.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment.
      Take care,
      Rach x
