tokyo lanters

here is the finished piece! i wanted to give the look of lanterns floating  and i like how this has gone. hylton has quite a funky 70's vibe to him too which is why i did the inner circle pattern from yellow to brown in that way as its similar to the 70's colour scheme that is seen in many an episode of the good life! i'm pretty happy with it, so far the paintings i'm doing for my friends are just getting better as i seem to put alot more love into them then i do when i'm just doing them for myself!
more colour and glue...
second layer with me putting some colour to the pva mix and dripping it randomly and quickly over the canvas

hylton's painting! in 3 steps!

here is the first layer of hylton's painting. he said he wanted me to think about street lights in tokyo (i dont know why!) when i was painting it so i did and so gave the background a dark blue night sky colour with blue glitter on top to enhance this. here i mixed pva with artlic to make the lines going accross the top i did this by holding the wet brush and letting the pva drip accross the canvas quickly to give it the feeling of speediness.

i need gold andsilver paint for hilton's painting...gonna start on the draftsfor it tonight me thinks!
abstract harlesden map, acrylic on paper with the white shapes actually being pieces i have chosen to cut out of the piece for effect
heres some really old paintings from my 2nd year at uni. i was creating abstract versions of maps from the area of london where i grew up called harlesden. the pieces show mainly the map sctions of above ridley road (my old road) near doyle gardens and Roundwood Park normally facing the left hand side of most of my pieces. i remeber alot of growing up in colours, like a certain road will bring back memories of orange due to rust over a garage door, or for the play areato be painted a red tone as i remeber being given a red toy truck there by another child when i was about 4 or 5.

London Photography


hello all,
here is my first blog, which i am going to be using to put up new paintings, drawings, scribbles or just random ideas or planning!
my paintings are of the abstract variety, using colour and geometric shapes to produce pieces which are primarily based on my own visual interpretations of either arcitecture or of pieces of music.
i will update this regularly with new ideas and more detailed information about my work.
thanks for looking!
Cherie Giordmaine :)
