When Angels Visit Us

Following on from the Angelic UpstArt sketch I posted earlier, I’ve made one or two changes to the larger angel canvas. Here it is in its ‘before’ state:

And here it is again after some more marks have been added.

This work is on an 80cm x 30cm canvas and I used Liquitex Heavy Body Professional paints.

Whilst I like the overall design – I’m personally not 100% sure about this one, and I’ve learned not to rush, so I’m sticking with it, for now at least. If you would like to buy this piece, you can contact me for more details via doug dot shaw at wgalimited dot com.

Where to start the artistic adventures of 2018? I had an idea for a larger canvas over the 2017 Christmas period – and following some good advice from Carole – I began with a developmental sketch, seen below.

From there I scaled the idea up and went from monochrome to colour. I’m not convinced by the larger piece yet – I think I need to make the figure looser, somehow. I’ll keep playing.

The canvas is 80cm x 30cm and the paper is 25cm x 10cm. The dessert spoon is shown to help you get a sense of the difference in size between the two pieces.

The two pieces are currently untitled – and I am grateful to MJ Carty for putting the blog title idea in my head, thank you.

Update: The monochrome sketch has now sold.
