I’ve had times when the art I create looks, well, just “okay”.
Whether it’s the balance of colour, composition or simply doesn’t make me smile.
Today I’m going to show you two canvases that I’ve re-worked that you can now find in my Made It Shop.
Here are the offending artworks.
They have been bugging me for over a year and with frustration and a tonne of courage I decided to do what many artists have done before, painted over it!!
Here they are re-worked Baby!
I pulled the quote off entirely as it was all awkward and fumbly and didn’t “mean” anything to anyone. I added some stamping to the top left hand section which balanced the whole composition. The dark blue also added some much needed drama and excitement to the piece.
I kept the quote for this one but again added some stamping to that vaccuum in the top left hand section. I chose a warmer red to match the cuffs and collar but also recoloured these to unify the image.
(sorry for wonky pic sizes….getting used to WordPress’ new media gallery bits n pieces)
Both these originals can be found in my MadeIt store HERE, or click on the badge in the sidebar.
With some love and a cool change, I may get the scanner to co-operate in this super hot weather we’re having, and you’ll see these images in Red Bubble soon.
p.s. Thank you for all the lovely emails and comments, particularly on FaceBook regarding my Etzcetera Magazine feature. I’m still not sure it’s me in the mag…all a bit surreal, but happy to have had the opportunity and trust from some people I admire. Moving forward and moving Brilliantly!!!
