My Latest Creations

Posted by Kat C on Monday, July 2, 2018, In : Art 
It's been a while (to put it mildly) since I've posted anything here and I recently got talking to someone about my art and my website and thought I should give it a tidy.  Once I started tidying things up I realised I didn't really stop blogging for any particular reason.  I just got out of the habit.  If I can get out of the habit then I can get back in the habit, so here I am.

I thought I'd share some of my latest creations.  I've been having some hormone issues and that's really inspired m...

Wire and Felt

Posted by Kat C on Tuesday, April 12, 2016, In : Art 
I've not done a blog post for quite a few weeks as I've been quite busy work-wise and have been feeling really creative.  I've been playing around with a few different mediums; I've made a few new items for both shops, been needle felting and experimenting with making cold porcelain (an easy to make air drying clay) and I've made a little sculpture of a blue woman.  I've also had a commission to make a piece of jewellery for someone and have been working on this too.

Here's the new items I've ...

Work in Progress

Posted by Kat C on Wednesday, August 5, 2015, In : Art 
I've had a few months of feeling a bit uninspired but after a bit of frustration I seem to have felt in the mood to paint again.  This isn't finished yet but I thought it might be nice to share some progress photos.  I normally do this on instagram and I find it interesting seeing how a painting evolves as I work on it. 





I just need to do a last bit of work around the eye and with the hair but so far I'm really pleased with how it's looking.  Hopefully it should be finished in the next few ...

Recent Paintings

Posted by Kat C on Saturday, January 24, 2015, In : Art 
For some reason the gremlins in my camera cable seem to have gone for now so I've been able to get some better quality pics of some of my recent creations.

Here's a couple I've shared already but in a lower quality format.  The first was done in pens and watercolour paints with some chalk to create the mist.

And this one was done in pens, watercolour pencils and glitter.  It kind of evolved while I was watching Frankenweenie so I didn't put much thought into the materials I was using.  This me...

Bats, Bats, Bats

Posted by Kat C on Wednesday, May 7, 2014, In : Art 
It's no secret that bats are one of my favourite animals, along with cats, but they don't tend to feature much in my artwork.  Just recently that's started to change so I've been sketching lots of bats and I plan to add lots of bats to the new painting I'm working on. 

Here's a few of my bats

They're both a little messy as I forgot to use a waterproof pen to do the outlines in so when I added the paint it bled a bit :/ 

Here's what I'm working on at the moment.  It's still got a lot to do...

I've finished my latest painting last night in record time.  I think this one took just under a week.  I'm really chuffed with how it's come out.  It's acrylic and glitter on canvas and is A3.  I haven't decided what to call it yet, probably something with Dandelions in as they're one of my favourite flowers.

Finally Finished!

Posted by Kat C on Wednesday, November 13, 2013, In : Art 
I've been trying to work on as many of my goals for this year.  I'm reading more again and trying to do something creative every day.  This means I've finally finished a couple of paintings.  Here's the first one.

The main bit that needed finishing was the background and tidying up her hair and top.  I'm really pleased with how it's come out and pleased to have something finished.  I've got a terrible habit of starting paintings and then getting distracted and starting something else.  It's ca...

Latest Painting

Posted by Kat C on Saturday, September 14, 2013, In : Art 
As promised, pics of my latest painting.  It's not quite finished but I'll probably be finished by the end of today.

I'm really pleased with how its looking.  I'll get some better pics when I've finished it.  Hopefully there will be some sunlight too as I hate using the flash.  I always think you get truer colours in natural light.  I'm off now to try and get some ideas for a new goth swap I'm doing :)

A Sneak Peak at What I'm Working On

Posted by Kat C on Thursday, April 18, 2013, In : Jewellery 
I've been enjoying creating the last few weeks and have really enjoyed taking part in swaps again.  I've also been making some stuff for my shop and myself.  I've been working on a new painting.  I haven't worked out a title for it and its probably sums up how I've been feeling the last few months.  It's not exactly a self portrait but it has similarities with me.  Its painted in acrylics and is on canvas board, which I like working on.

I've also been making some jewellery for my shop.  Here's...

Painting Again

Posted by Kat C on Friday, April 20, 2012, In : Art 
I've always love art and enjoyed painting but just recently I've been wanting to work on a larger scale.  I normally work on small canvases (ACEO sized) or on A5 canvas boards but recently I've been working on something that's probably about A3 (ish).  I'm really enjoying it and I'm really happy with how its coming out.  I just need to do a bit more on the eye that's only half in shot and her hair and then I might leave it there.  Here's how its looking at the mo.
