Pastel and acrylic on canvas taken into photoshop and developed

I am an artist from the North Coast of NSW, utilizing my Graphic Design skills to generate thought processes in Adobe Photoshop. I then translate my designs onto canvas using mixed media, ie acrylic, ink, pastel, gold leaf etc. I also work intuitively with colour straight onto the canvas letting the flow of paint dictate the composition. I can relate to the Bowerbird, as I am drawn to blues and turquoises, collecting my treasures from the artists universe to produce my work.

    oh she turned out brilliant Cate…i absolutely love love love, and it was those Blythe dolls i was trying to recall….she reminds me a little of a Blythe doll…i love her dreamy face…and i really love the half shadow b&w….fantastic, anita will be thrilled :) x

  • hahha we were writing about each others work at the same time. Wow some of those dolls are really cute I had no idea about them. I kinda cheated and just put up the drawing I did of her I really need to finish properly and do the roofs and b & w body. I just knew they were in a hurry and was getting really anxious about letting people down. I need to take my time especially when I find something difficult and I found this really difficult. Not comming up with the concept and designing it in ps that was the easy part. Trying to make the face look like a doll was really hard. Anyway at least I have something up and can concentrate on finishing it properly and upload it later without stressing too much.
