New Artworks Exhibition at Green Island Gallery

4 comments
A massive sway away from my normal artwork style, although i did do quite a few like this about ten years ago. Since I don't have the physical means to sit and do heaps of detailed artworks lately, theses pieces have been very therapeutic, being able to be loose, and more creative.
They are done in heavy 3D modeling compounds and course texture gels with palette knives and large brushes.
They were hung at the green Island gallery today and will be up until the end of April.
Check out the Green Island Gallery website (which I built a few months ago) here www.greenislandgallery.com

Signwriting

1 comments

Last year I got a signage commission for the Momona Playgroup.
Took a while, but got it finished in the end.
painted in outdoor acryics on marine ply and sealed with clear seal from rainbow paints. Unfortunately the clear sealer went very yellow after the sign was in the sun for a few weeks, so quite disappointed. I was told by rainbow that this wouldn't happen, never getting paint from them again!
Above: lettering printed out to trace onto sign, and below that, the images for the background painted on before lettering went up.

I used to do heaps of signwriting in the past, did the large signs for Video Venue in Green Island, and have also done decorative signwriting on stock cars, beach buggies etc in the 1980's.
back then I wanted to train as a signwriter, but never did.
