Funny old face

Why do I draw faces over and over again?  I think I am searching for clues. Maybe I’m seeking to understand expression a little better. Am I drawing myself, or ‘the other’? Who knows…

First Do No Harm – Hydrangea

Posted in Painting Diary with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 29, 2015 by Jenny

I painted this on my computer and had it digitally printed with additional glazes. There are cameo portraits and a seal inserted too.

It’s the story of how the Hydrangea plant came to Britain, and its medicinal properties first discovered by the Cherokee. Near the bottom is the Hippocratic seal- which accompanies the Hippocratic oath of around 500 BCE, still in use today: “First do no harm…”

There’s information about Peter Collinson of Pekham who imported rare plants in the C18th  HERE

It’s my little cat, Lemon, or Citron (mon p’tit chat). A small yellow cat with a big personality. This is a recent computer painting from a study I did in 2011. A homage to George Stubbs’ painting, Whistlejacket, of 1762.LemononStairsLOW


A Celtic Apollo

I’ve gone a bit historical, and a bit ‘Pritani’ for this portrait of a horse. It’s an iPad sketch of the ancient horse symbol, with other related symbologies.
