I have been loving the freedom of getting creative in the studio here at The Art Vault. No phone ringing, no unexpected people coming to the door selling me products or services, nothing but some great music playing though my iMac and nothing but beams of sunshine coming through the window and onto my workbench.

Thought I’d share my latest ideas inspired by this part of the world. They are progressive photos which I had hoped to upload in order but see they haven’t. Hopefully you can make sense of it all. If you know how to change the order the photos appear I love to hear from you.

I began with pasting down some preliminary elements, colour swatches and pieces where I have used modelling paste, metallic paints, gold leaf, etc. It’s just the beginning and things are sure to change and develop as I go (you’ll see a sun which I later decided to take out), still getting the creative juices flowing brings such BLISS!

I have also added a couple of images that I have manipulated in Photoshop which I also love. What do you like the most – the delicate pastel shades or the intense bright colours?

Have a super day whatever you are doing.
