SpriCulArts – Heartical Works in Progress 2

IMAG4176

These are the latest additions to my ‘Heartical’ Collection. I am still working on two and deciding if one is complete.  This may sound funny, but each work I do has to feel completed, like I have expressed all within that space . I have also found that by working on a couple of pieces at a time, I am less liable to feel low.  Mind you though, I do have some neon green, yellow and orange card waiting  in the wings, I’ve just got to find my sunglasses to start working on them……

A lot of my ‘Heartical’ Collection  are head and shoulder images which also reflects my love of cultural  hairstyles and head wear.

New Year, time to start creating new works of art. I love working with metallic pens, specially gold and silver and am always looking for brighter pens or markers.These pictures are from my ‘Heartica’l collection and I am still working on them. ‘ZebHeart’ is the only one I have had framed so far.

SpiriCulArts – Revelation

‘Revelation by Imani aka Empressfaith c 1998

Black Silver and Gold ink on pink neon card

 

When I am in a good mood, I can work on two or maybe three pieces at once. And I also find that working on bright neon card can be a bit eye watering at times but hey, I love the results. I found ‘Revelation’ to be a really calming picture to make.

 

 

SpriCulArts – Eye Of The Beholder

Eye Of The Beholder by Empressfaith c 1999

This is one of my earliest pieces, so early  that I had forgotten about it. I was sorting out some of my old artworks and found this picture in a folder. I remember snatching moments to draw as my children were much younger then. Those were the days when I could be working on two pictures at once, it was like I was running on an engine of creativity.

‘Eye of The Beholder’ is made up of Black, Green Red and Silver ink on neon yellow card.

SpiriCulArts – IrieLocks

‘IrieLocks’ by Imani c 1992

 

‘IrieLocks’ by Imani c 1992

This is the only large scale picture I have done using water colour crayons as well as pencils. ‘IrieLocks’ is also the only picture in my collection  which is on white card to make the colours more effective.  This picture reminds me of my  childhood love of  ‘Colouring Books’  and the sheer enjoyment of completing various outlined drawings. ‘ IrieLocks’  is a version of ‘Locks Divine’
