I've been really productive over the past few weeks, I've been sharing little updates here and there on facebook. I have an exciting new set of works on porcelain inspired by Roman art which I'm enjoying the research and design process immensely. Also, I'll have some other porcelain paintings to share soon, I wrote about them a few weeks ago also here, and here...lots to look forward to...I do believe that I'm learning the secret to a 30 hour day. Here are a few photos of the plates before the 3rd firing (so it looks pretty brownish among the colour...and the black lines will fire off), there are still about 2 firings to go.
Again, not all colours look like they should yet....
Some of the colours on this plate will fire as purple, there are more deep red orange colours here too- wait for the magic of the kiln!
In the next few weeks you'll see my art licensing project which I've been developing with a Russian company over the past 3 months...very exciting. Thanks again to those friends on facebook who have given their feedback on my marketing and branding designs of this project too, you've been a wonderful help! I'll be sharing more about this and lots of other new things in a few weeks, so check back to the fan pages or here for updates.
New paintings: Expressionist landscapes
Here are two of my latest canvas paintings; these paintings, and maybe one more, are exploring the journey of finding peace of mind. There is one more larger painting on this theme which I'm currently working on. These paintings are completed in acrylic paints and texture medium, building up layers and washes of colours and contrasts to convey the effects. The titles of these paintings are fairly self explanatory, I don't have the time at the moment to write more.
Landscapes- Evaporating my fears, Ingrid Lee 2013, acrylic on canvas 120 cm x 92 cm
Sailing inside my tranquility, Ingrid Lee 2013, acrylic on canvas 120 cm x 92 cm
Lastly, here is a completed painting from about 3 weeks ago, which I started last year (read about it here). The other tenebrist inspired paintings are at the first few layers of under-painting stage....so I'll write about those more as they progress.
I hope you enjoy the update, thanks for reading....please leave your comments on the blog post, I'd love to hear from you 🙂
