Finally we get to the whole point of my blog! My art! I’ve written about other peoples art and my opinions on art but I haven’t shared any of mine!
Well, finally, I have something to share! One of my New Years resolutions was to draw more. I’ve been horrible about sticking to it but I’m pleased I’m at least trying to get back on track and after a several month long dry spell, I’m happy with what I’ve produced.
I’m tentatively calling the piece “Morphine”, since it’s derived from the poppy flowers which feature prominently in the painting and is a pain killer and a sedative. I wanted the girl to be beautiful and ethereal but also dangerous, like a poison.
My plan is to keep the colour scheme at a minimal, mostly black/white with colour in the poppy flowers.
She’s going to be way different from what I usually do but sometimes less is more and the beauty is in the details. I’ve been so careful and painstakingly meticulous with the details and every mark on the paper is there on purpose.
I’m still working on her and I’ve got more details I plan on adding so I won’t go to deep into “meaning” and “symbolism” since most of it won’t make sense at this stage anyways. Should you happen to find my little corner of the internet, I hope you come back to see the finished product.
