Mono-Print Dinosaurs

Posted on

A great day of mono printing was had on Friday…I literally couldn’t stop……
I loved developing my intricate Dinosaur illustrations into naive, loose, childlike prints.
Though they really don’t look too intimidating 😉

I was extremely touched having been sent a photo of my friends Wedding gift up on their wall! In their words ‘Veronica’s Art Wall’….a wall with not only the wedding portrait up but my handmade greeting cards in frames:

Vintage Doll paintings

Posted on

So my latest series ‘Vintage Dolls’ are coming along beautifully…..i’m having a great time re-interpreting the Vintage Wallpaper patterns from the Geoffrye Museum using a new colour palette and masking tape as a resist (takes me back to my university days as a textile student) it’s hugely exciting to be able to combine my Surface Pattern knowledge with my fine Art paintings….

I’ve been using collage onto certain pieces and they’re becoming rather surreal……documented the development below:

Vintage Doll Series

Posted on

I’ve spent the last few days working on a new series of ink drawings which feature vintage dolls as they are (only added an injection of colour). For my initial research I went back to the places which first inspired me to draw dolls…….Pollock’s Toy Museum & The Museum of Childhood, it was interesting to make a visit ten years later and re-draw the very same dolls which sparked my interest for what is now my predominant muse all these years later………….

 

In Pollock’s Toy museum I feel instantly at home in the ‘doll’s room’ as I reminisce my nineteen year old self and how cosy and inspired I felt in this rickety old house-museum away from the hustle and bustle of central London.

New paintings, development…

Posted on Updated on

I’ve started two new paintings to add to my ‘Dream Abstraction’ Series (see below)

Veronica Rowlands 'Dream Abstraction

Here are the two new girls so far; I started with some Kandinsky inspired circles and flower paintings as a foundation layer which have been covered in white gesso and now the ladies are coming together…I just need to add some bright colours so they sit nicely with their sisters….

Scratch the Surface….delivered

So after months of labour and beading my 60x30inch artwork; ‘Scratch the Surface’ was ready to be exhibited……it was a stressful journey from Canary Wharf to Notting Hill by tube (not to mention the rain and wind when walking from stations) but I’m delighted to say it arrived un-damaged and in one piece; all ready for Debut Contemporary’s February Private View….I can’t wait to see her up!
