I’ve been diligently trying to practice the techniques I learnt at the recent Emily Ball workshop (see previous post), but keep succumbing to a flu bug I picked up on a trip to London.
These are the result of experimentation in the studio this week, in between feeling rubbish, using some fabulous Markal Paintstiks I treated myself to after using Emily’s (they’re like big luscious oil pastels!). This is a collage/mixedmedia piece on board, which I’ve split into two as it seems to work better that way.
By the way, I’ve tried laying out this post in a better way but have lost the will to live (it’s the ex-designer in me).
gorgeous abstract work! 🙂
Thanks Debi, pleased you’re enjoying my blog!
loving your beautiful work! 🙂 cheers, Debi
These are great Mari, really like them.
Thanks very much Sue!
oooh – just loving the movement and little details in these Mari – hope you’re on the mend very soon – off to Google Markal Paintstiks!!
Thanks for the feedback Elaine, and hope you enjoy using the Paintstiks. I’ve used oilbars too, but prefer these 🙂
Hope you feel better soon! How big is this? It’s lovely.
Many thanks Alita, these pieces are 34 x 25 cm each and are on Daler watercolour board. Glad you. like them 🙂
