My Sketchbook - Work in progress

14 July 2016

Regularly sketching is great for capturing thoughts and exploring ideas. It’s a process I always cherish and making sketches and creating work in my sketchbook is an important part of my creative expression.

Below are some of my sketches from 14 July 2016

A sketchbook is great for experimenting with new concepts and ideas and I see it as a powerful problem-solving tool that I can return to later and use for developing my next art project.

Sketching gives me the freedom to illustrate my thoughts and what’s in my mind. It’s a safe space to experiment and generate ideas; somewhere I can test and play with shapes and colors before committing to my next project/artwork.

From my Sketchbook 14.07.2016

Today I am mainly focusing on background and texture. All four of my sketches were first layered with acrylic texture before being painted over with a purple colour.

Two of the sketches had blue and green colour added to the design.


* Painting with acrylics
* Mixing colours
* Exploring textures
* Combining blue, pink and purple colours
* Using white for highlights
* Single colour and dual-colour sketches
* Painting on acrylic paper

Acrylic paintings

Paintings created with acrylics have a fantastic brightness which make colours appear more vivid, resulting in a remarkable three-dimensional effect. These original paintings do not require any additional framing and the canvas is about 38mm deep.

Elin's paintings are all painted on box canvas with acrylic paint. These are original works of art (and therefore more expensive than posters, prints or commercially printed canvases).

As this is original paintings, there will only be one piece of each painting availble for sale
