Exhibits, Part II

I hope you haven't been waiting too anxiously for these, I managed to get distracted again.

First up, summer swifts. This was originally intended as the background for a steampunked dragonfly to got with the butterfly & moth, but it didn't work, so I inked in a few swifts for a nice simple summery canvas.


Next up some recycled art. This was originally a workshop piece. It's watered down acrylic sponged onto some basic cardstock. The stone....  yes, it's a stone. No, I know you thought it was something else,  stop sniggering. As I was saying; the stone is acrylic with salt texture, and it's all mounted on a  piece of scrap cardboard from a packing box.



Last, but not least, a pencil sketch inspired by one of the exercises on Lisa Wright's course.

  1. Gorgeous every one Nigel! Especially your "stone" ... which, snigger-inducing or not, is fantastically beautiful!
