What's happening?

My website is having a makeover, 2 years overdue.

Please be patient, I will be adding photos of my old uni work and current illustrations !

Follow me on twitter (@minirice_uk) or check out my Facebook 'Like' page, which currently houses some of my illustration work or check out my twitpic account for up-to-date images.


I have also decided that I will only be posting my work, artist spotlights and work that I find inspirational, rather than exhibitions, things that I have been to and other art related news.


3 Paintings on the GO!

2011Posted by Lainey Mon, April 25, 2011 23:39:43

I have missed painting as I don't have much time for it these days, but somehow I ended up having 3 paintings on the go!

I had started the lion painting a few weeks ago but never had a chance to finish it.

Above: The paintings having a little dry out in the sun!

Here is one of the completed paintings, I REALLY LIKE it and may not put it in the WE ARE BIRMINGHAM shop for sale. I try to keep the wood visible through the paint, as sometimes you can get a lovely texture by it and this is what you get from this painting.

Below: 'Goolie'

A little close up of 'Goolie'. It is also the first time I used Posca pens, they are very nice but I got a bit worried about using it on wood as the tips looked a bit worn after a few lines. I think I may invest in a few more as they do have a nice smoothness to them but I don't think they're anymore special from other liners...maybe that is because I haven't used them to their full potential/enough yet!
