My last day of painting before India!!!

I've already gained some good insight into what i want my final piece to look like now. From taking close ups off small sections of the large canvas, i can take bits that i like. I'm not overly keen myself on the look at the moment, as i much prefere the image of the close ups. So from here i can work out that i need to work bigger in terms of brush strokes and details.

Hopefully when i'm back from India i'll able to get back into this idea and produce something more solid.

feeelin' happppy!!!!!! BBYYYYEEEEEE

From this....
To this....

My blog might appear quite for the next two weeks (12th to 26th) as i'll be away soaking up the colours of India - don't mistake this for laziness...but the internet cafes with there slow connections in the Punjab don't appeal to me!!

Promise to make up for my absence when I'm back with lots of colour!!! xoxo

..Um although i have kept my blog updated with all the work I am doing at the moment, I'm not feeling the benefits from having one. I haven't seen other updated work, had feedback or any responses, and i'm truly just a bit confused as to why we have chosen this option to promote our final work. For students like myself, who find it isn't always possible to be in the studio spaces,I was happy to hear there would be a blogging network, to keep contact and feedback at maxium levels, however, this feels pointless at the moment...none the less, i'll keep it updated and hopefully hear back from tutors and peers?

ahhhh blogging? x

Step 2; Using colour on big scale.

From the portraits and getting the feel for colours again I tried my hand at working on large scale canvases (4.5x3.5ft). Heres what I came up with today.

Colouring my face.

A step on my journey into colour.
Paintings on A4 size wood boards, working with colours as an experiment towards my final piece.

Re-creating my past. My first year at LJMU was a journey into colour, family, culture and all the things that made me happy. I re-discovered old portraits I had done 4 years ago, and decided to re-work the ideas I had back then, as they seem fitting with what I want to create for my final pieces of work. This is what I have come up with so far.

I'm happy with the outcome at the moment, although I know a lot of work is needed for these new ideas to move on from what I have done perviously. EXCITEDD xoxo
