Unstable – Music-book Doodles 2022

In my frantic browsing on Pinterest, I often swipe past art that comes back to me later because of some unsuspected trigger. This is the case for a bunch of amorphous forms I've drawn... maybe the large block of colour behind them reminds me of Mark Rothko's fields of colour, where my imagination wanders in … Continue reading Unstable – Music-book Doodles 2022

Looking Back – Music-book Doodles 2022

Again, the possibility of building up tones and highlights with the simple wax crayon amazes me. I wasn't sure I could get the figure to appear on the surface of the green shape, if I started with my outline and then filled in the colours... So, I lightly coloured in the green square-ish shape, then … Continue reading Looking Back – Music-book Doodles 2022

Disdain – Music-book doodles 2022

What happens when all we can see is differences. Not seeing eye to eye is often a choice to not listen and consider another perspective. These two figures are similar in many ways, and yet they chose to focus on their differences and even turn them into hatred. The facial expressions are angry and mistrustful; … Continue reading Disdain – Music-book doodles 2022

Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Forty-Five: On the Verge of emotions…

See T'Hed Forty-Four for more of this expletive... Seeking intensity, the protagonist allowed himself to get red with anger and then started laughing at his preposterous attempts... laughing so hard that his face got even more red. Time to get back behind the curtain and let the creativity develop as much as it can... I'm … Continue reading Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Forty-Five: On the Verge of emotions…

Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Thirty-Nine: Hey! I’m talking to you!

See T'Hed Thirty-Eight for more on this process... Somehow the story came back into range after being away for a while... Here, the protagonist has pushed aside the other experiments and grabs the viewer up close and demands attention. All attention is focused on the emotions in the face... Now we only need to see … Continue reading Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Thirty-Nine: Hey! I’m talking to you!

Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Thirty-Eight: Whoop-dee-do

See T'Hed Thirty-Seven for more on this process... There are occasional creative stumbles in the process and the only way past them are through them... I'm not sure where this one is meant to go and because I made it a while before writing about it, it's meaning feels lost to me. I see my … Continue reading Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Thirty-Eight: Whoop-dee-do

Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Thirty-Seven: Boop?!?

See T'Hed Thirty-Six for more on this process... My subconscious decided on a different neck for this one (Without a doubt, which will re-appear in future explorations). Maybe I was digging deep into my mental catalogue and some childhood image came to mind. It feels like I'm expressing more of an inner child/drawing here. t's … Continue reading Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Thirty-Seven: Boop?!?

Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Thirty-Six: Subtleties

See T'Hed Thirty-Five for more on this process... Full disclosure... my last post was written a week ago and I've lost the storyline I thought I was writing... it was more a stream of consciousness thing anyway... which leads well into the title of this piece... What happens in a stream of consciousness is often … Continue reading Working out an Inspiration – T’Hed Thirty-Six: Subtleties
