I reinstated three of the auctions that ebay took down for putting links to this blog in the description. So now there are four auctions currently, although one is ending very soon. All auctions are starting from only $10. Go here to see all auctions
Showing posts with the label November
I have just been notified that the remaining ebay listing have been removed due to violations. 1- Because I had a link to this blog and apelads blog, and they don't allow links to websites that sell other products, which I don't think applies to either blogs anyway. 2-Because I stated that I wanted to donate 10% of proceeds to go to a charity Heifer.org. I could not do it through ebay (as they have an official charity option) as I did not have a US street address. I apologise for this and hopefully I can get the remaining pieces reposted For now only Nov 16 is left
It's with sadness that I have to announce that the November Art Project will be coming to an end tomorrow (Nov 20th) . Although it doesn't take long to draw and post the images I realised that the finalising payments and posting artwork will take too much time over the next two weeks. Two weeks that I need to get all my house packed up and ready to move out for Canada. I'm also trying to publish my next comic. I can say though, that the November project in my eyes has been successful thus far as an experiment in having an online exhibtion. It's something that I will definitely be doing again in future; Most likely the next exhibition will most likely be in the month of January Thank you for everybody's support and interest in the project Cheers Anthony *Image credit: Norman Ellison (1896–1971) [Crying child] photograph Norman Ellison Collection of lantern slides [c.1924–c.1940] Pictorial
Sold Good news and bad news... Good news is that 'November 1' sold this morning just before it's auction time was up. Congratulation Josh for picking it up for only $7! Bad news , you missed out! But then again good news is that there are more pieces to bid on Also I only have around 2-3 to do in this series. What I do after this I'm not sure. I was thinking some small pen and ink drawing for a week perhaps, jump on tha blowa' and let me know what you think!
Photograph of painting Scan of painting Ended Thought it might be a good time to explain the process of how I've been making these canvas art works, as to give you a better idea of what they actually are (plus if you click the image you'll get a more detailed view) 1- I paint and draw a texture onto the surface of the canvas. I sometimes even use spray cans to achieve some depth in the texture. 2- I very carefully mount a premade artwork on paper to the canvas; The paper is archival cartridge with ink washes and crayon. 3- I continue to check all edges of the paper to make sure mount was sucessful 4- I then need to apply some layers of acrylic medium (the same stuff that I'm using to mount the paper) over the surface. 5- I add a final layer of a turps based varnish (used for oil and acrylic) over the surface as I enjoy the finish it gives and also the satisfaction that the paper mount is defintley secure. PS- The reason I obsess so much about the mounting and varnish
