29 Project: Days 80-82...

The blog seems to be filling up with mainly 29 project based posts these days...I hope no one minds...imagine how empty it would be here without them? Ha!

This update sees some more work in progress and my most recent finished painting. I'd love to know what you think...

29 project: Days 80-82...

Day 80: Tuesday 10th August - Practice printing on a new, soft, soft cotton. I have been practice printing on the fabric for my new scarves and I am very excited about it, I can tell you! Do you recognise this print? It's from my 'All the Kings Horses' print design. Sometimes when pattern printing and experimenting I like to use my existing screens in different ways than they were originally intended, and the results are often really interesting...There's another pic on my Flickr if you want to see. (I am hoping to have the new scarves ready to debut at the Cornwall Design Fair which I am exhibiting at next weekend! There's lots to do...)
Day 80 - Practice printing

Day 81: Wednesday 11th August - All The Kings Horses. Talking of All The Kings Horses, here is my latest painting. I can't remember which came first, the print design idea or the painting idea and a flick through my sketchbook leaves me none the wiser...I shall post a proper picture of this one as soon as I have it scanned.
Day 81 - All The Kings Horses

Day 82: Thursday 12th August - today - Birds. It's a little known fact that birds used to be my 'thing' and I used to paint them allll the time, especially during my degree. The above painting has a little bird at the bottom right (see him? Hiya!). I'd forgotten how much I enjoy painting them so decided to do a few more...these guys and others will be available as prints soon! (the birdy reference book in the background here is AMAZING. I found it in a charity shop years ago and it has so many birds to look at. Brilliant)
Day 82 - Little Birds...

Your scarves are gorgeous. I love the print, and they look so soft and comfy :) Brilliant paintings as always.

Thank you all, there's more on the way...

Amelia - the 29 project is me blogging a photograph of mine for each day of the last year of my 20's... it gets me taking more pictures!
