artisticsnessesses

Occasionally I crack out the paintbrushes and canvasses and have a good go at unleashing my inner artist.

Here's a sample of my dabbles with the brush :))





The three paintings above are miniatures, approximately 20cm square. I really enjoyed working on a small scale. All three are self-portraits (with alot of artistic license) meant to represent three aspects of my depressive funk I was in at the time.

 Just some pen and inks from my sketch pad...


 This is meant to be my dog, Bettie...I haven't finished colouring her in yet. I think I'll get her tattoed on me.
