Wednesday 30th January 2013 - A Small Update

I've left this alone for waaaay too long.

But, I had a dissertation to proof read, reference and publish, jobs to do, and competitions to prepare for.




I dug out my old embroidery kit from summer, and knocked this together for my old man for his birthday, he appreciates this kind of stuff, and it was good practice, as I may be using embroidery to some degree in my final project for uni.


This is like the only painting I've done so far in January, and with 1 day left, it looks to be the only painting of this month. That's bad, bad discipline by me, and as I always say, next month will be different.

And above is this year's watermark! Similar in shape to last years, as I like the way it fits into the corner of a painting. The runes translate to "10, 10, 1, 3" So sort of 2013 if you do some selective maths. The glow effect game out cool though...

Friday 4th January 2013 - Digital Workflow





Loooooong post is long.

This is something I've been meaning to do for about 6 months, so an assignment from uni that had me investigating my own working process seemed like an apt opportunity to actually get off my arse and do it.


Friday 4th January 2013 - 2012 in Reflection.


I hope I can continue to improve so exponentially this year... Looking at what I produced in January compared to December really is quite shocking.
