1  Acrylic madness! 5 paintings. in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by niggle24 on: February 01, 2008 04:12:36 AM
I've been taking a break from life for the past 6 months or so, hiding at my parents house in the south of France. Managed to do 9 or 10 paintings in all that time, here's a few of them.
Hope you like.

Scots Monument in Edinburgh (already posted this but since deleted link)

French Pyrenees (this was just a ten minute thing)

A leaf (I went mental with the paint on this one)

This is of my Dad and I. I'm not really happy with it as I just cannot paint people (I now know) but he seemed to like it which is what's important.

Garden sunset - from a photo (for my sister, it's her bday today)

2  Another Acrylic Scotland stylee! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by niggle24 on: October 09, 2007 08:18:52 AM
While I'm in the posting things mood I thought I'd share this painting with you lot.
I actually did it as a present for somebody last Christmas and since I'm now starting this years presents, I thought I'd get round to putting this up here!

For those of you who haven't ventured to Scotland before, this is my artist's impression of the Scott Monument on Princes Street in Edinburgh.

Not one of my best works, but I like the colours.
Apologises about the poor photo taking, it was the best I could manage  Angry

3  Birthday Acrylics! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by niggle24 on: October 09, 2007 08:11:47 AM
I haven't posted in ages, must be months - eek.
EDIT: Almost two years infact! How the hell did that happen?

It was my mum's birthday about a week ago and she also happens to share her special day with a family friend/neighbour so I thought I'd go a bit crazy with the old paint brushes.
Here's what a frantic morning's work produced! They're both beach-scapes very roughly copied from postcards. I basically followed the composition of the sand, sea and horizon and changed everything else - colour, texture etc.

Numero uno for my Mum:

And the second one, for the friend:

I much prefer the second one  Undecided
Hope you lot enjoy  Smiley
