Following an accidental ink spill the other day (oops):
I’ve been having fun with intentional ones this week and I’ve made some ACEOs using a mixture of gouache and black ink on 140lb watercolour paper. They’re a kind of a culmination of the mark-making classes I took with the wonderful Marion Thomson last year teamed with views of my mind-meadow (where the deer and the antelope roam) and, well, a whole load of ink.
There are seven in total in this series:
A few have sold already (thank you very much indeed!), but the rest are available now in my Folksy shop: siansburys
I’ve really enjoyed making these so I’m sure there’ll be more? Let me know what you think.
Remember what I said in my last post about keeping spammy content to Tumblr? Well I’ll just have to apologise now for spamming my 3 email/RSS subscribers who may have had 250 updates from me today when I accidentally imported my entire old blog over here. I actually just meant to import the sketchcrawl stuff – I’m so sorry!
Anyway, here’s a detail from a nice sketch of a calm, calming, deeply calming, hazy autumnal meadow. Love you ?
I’ve basically spent the “summer” using up all my paper and so, before I start on the next batch, I thought it was probably time I came back to blog about some of it.
You know what they say about quality over quantity? Well, I’ve completely ignored that and posted a whole bunch of sketchbook doodles on my Tumblr blog, in an attempt to keep the spammy content contained on the least annoying platform. I’m not really sure why I posted it at all to be honest, but maybe someone will like looking at it? Enjoy!
Above is one of my favourite landscape sketches – it makes me happy in a gnarly kind of way. Gnnngghh.
