Elvis Red & Gold

Latest Artwork from the studio in Lockdown

So I’ve included this video via my IGTV on instagram @artbymandyuk

It is about demonstrating the details of the artwork and different textures and colours that I chose to suit how I remember Elvis his look and smouldering look of those eyes he seemed to have a magic about him it was like he had the Midas touch where everything he did turned to gold this is reflected in the painting in Elvis eyes and the background representing that starry essence he had that his fans worshipped. The metallic Red flashes in his hair representing the Elvis stage lights giving off beautiful red rays of light on his stage silhouette the velvety matt black paint is used in his hair and that is to represent Elvis famous black hair dye known as black velvet also the song. I also used my drip paint technique something I started to use back in 2012 on a painting titled Fragments of my Mind. Like Elvis who is also a fragment of my mind. I like to paint portraits representing my memories and thoughts through my life wether it is in the present or the past. I also love Pop Culture again past and present and I enjoy painting them and why or how they represent my thoughts or have affected my life. 

Let me know your thoughts on my latest work all comments welcome.

Winter Solstice is about being reborn not of flesh but of spirit and of the light rising from the sun out of the darkest day of the year & it echoes the birth of light from the darkness🌔 “quote” belsebuub.com I’ve chosen the beautiful moonflower as it blooms only at night🌹

I’m late posting as I’ve been to visit my great Aunty for a love and cuddle we’ve just lost our great Uncle he will be very sadly missed. So I’d like to dedicate this in memory of my Great Uncle ❤️

Window into Wildlife

Good morning lovely people. A few weeks ago I mentioned I had been involved in a secret project.. The restoration project is about saving a local historic Aqueduct Cottage in Cromford Derbyshire and to highlight its beautiful natural surroundings & nature. Also featured in a local e newspaper Derwentwise. 

I became involved after seeing a callout for local artists to create paintings on the window & door boards. I couldn’t resist as I’d spent so many years since a child visiting. A beautiful magical place full of nature. You can view all the images on https://lnkd.in/g29eB6z you will notice from my timeline on there how much I enjoy going to the canal. Also in the images on Instagram are the family who lived there in the 1950’s with Frances Fay Barker one of the young children pictured in the black & white photo how beautiful!! So it did mean alot for me to get involved and give something back to the community. I hope you enjoy reading all about it. 

Have a great day everyone 

🌿🍃🌸🐝🐿
