A couple of things

Here are a couple of recent acrylic paintings that, well, I liked enough to put up here. They're just experimental/developmental pieces really, but I enjoyed doing them. :)

I suspect the first one was unconsciously somewhat inspired by Ruth Brown 's picture book A Dark, Dark Tale... it was one of my favourite picture books when I was little, and probably still is really! I'm quite pleased with how the colours turned out in both of these. :)


  1. What media did you use Jane? ooo and how did you get that scratchy effect? Im curious

  2. Lovely work. I'd say keep up with the experimenting!

  3. Thank you Doda, will do! :)

    Charlotte - it's just acrylics (can't remember if I used retarder or not). The scratchy effect on the castle one is just hatching with a soft pencil. :D
