ART AND WHIMSEY.

Anne D'Alton's Artworks, illustrtation, painting, watercolour

Capturing an image is often a matter of success….and….speed.

Tediously endeavoured artworks, tend to appear to be tedious, laborious and possibly even dull….

Your portfolio can be full of the most wonderful artworks, but close examination could reveal a very staid and even stale presentation and for that reason, I would suggest that occasionally you take a subject as in this artwork, one that is “light” in subject matter, but also a delightful insight into another world.

Working quickly helps too when presenting a “lightweight” subject as over- detailed work can make the artwork rather too studied – with the possibility of being dull…..

This work is a compilation of several photographs that I took and has been executed (quickly to catch the mood) in watercolour on paper.   I hope you enjoy this particular illustration.

ARTWORK WITH A LITTLE DIFFERENCE.

Anne D'Alton's Artworks, illustrtation, motoring artwork

Most artists are very serious about their artwork, but occasionally, just occasionally, a little artistic licence can be taken with a work.   Here, after painting this glorious Alpha Romeo, I just had to add in a couple of angelic heralds, serenading AlphaRomeo

the wonderful sight and sound of this truly fantastic car.

GOOD DRAUGHSTSMANSHIP.

For artists (including myself) who enjoy technical or semi-technical artwork and illustration, line and wash (ink and watercolour) is a very pleasant and rewarding method of creating such artworks.Rage colour
