Hello palette knife

Inspired by local nature I was inspired to actually use my palette knife (something that I barely touched before). Loved the texture, and the contrast. The leaf colour was actually referenced from the bush I saw. I keep leaf reference now in an impressionists painting book I have just for this exact purpose. Had lots of fun creating these.

Logo design - Clarington Photography club

While having and enjoying a busy summer, I was approached to do a logo design for the Clarington Photography club. I quickly accepted this. Over the span of a week I came up with ideas, sketches, and did a few logos for client approval. Happy to say they picked my favourite. Clarington always has wonderful festivals and love their scenery, flowers... so I incorporated flower petals in rgb (as they are dealing with print photos) into the logo (which is a camera lense). I am proud and happy to see the logo being used and published. It was a fun project to work on.

where have I gone...

I know right it's been a couple of months. These months admittedly have been a blur. August, sept, oct and what how is it fall?? I have been rebuilding my computer for the last couple of weeks and thinking about catching up on things. I am a big summer person, I find any excuse to be outside enjoying the weather. We live in canada, so really we have 3-4 months of beautiful weather and we all go crazy over it!! Instead of inside on the computer and discouraged from a painting gone wrong, I was outside enjoying the weather with my sketchbook in tow.  Here's a couple of pieces from the sketchbook, quick doodles. And wow has fall left me so inspired, I can't wait to get the canvas and paints out!!!
