This month as been full of commissions, and artworks selling before I have finished them 🙂
Really enjoying the diversity of what people are asking for, Im fortunate enough to have wonderful people asking for pieces that are fully trusting my process so they are not trying to control the outcome. My best work is when I am left to my own devises and all I really need is an idea of colour and size.
The viewer can make of that what they will, I dont like naming my art, I dont want MY influence to affect what the viewer sees/feels… but for the sake of marketing (lol!) I need to name a series when I am creating them.
So I am now on #5! Yep speedy gonzalas is at it again!
I painted the background of #1 and then doodled a very fast design straight onto the canvas and painted the outline of it white, as I always do as a prep for the rest to come… the COLOUR, the signature ‘Reina colour’ 🙂 ……
I posted an ‘In Progress’ pic on my FB page and got an overwhelming response of: “its FAB as it is!!” … so, a new series was born…
this is the finished result of the first one:
#1 (18″ x 36″-for sale) (c) Reina Cottier Art 2013
#2 (20″ x 24″ Sold)
(c) Reina Cottier Art 2013
and this one i started yesterday, still in progress: (SOLD)
(C) Reina Cottier Art 2013
I feel like I have another few of these left inside me yet 🙂
Finished! so happy with how this turned out, and sold it the same day. 🙂
Doesnt get much better than that.
levaing you with a collage I have done of things that inspire my creativity,
I often get asked what inspires me with regards to my art :)How to answer that with words, when it really is visual and sensory to me. Its not only colour, shape and textures, but also experiences, emotions & thoughts…..So here is a collage of about .001% of things that inspire me, that stimulate my senses, so I then use my language of shape and colour to express that inner experience. ♥
