Journal History


Lake Claremont: Pink-Eared Duck by napalmnacey
Lake Claremont: Pink-Eared Duck
Pink-Eared Ducks, or Zebra Ducks, are an uncommon duck in Australia.  They are very striking, having a striped belly, striped head, buff wings and a huuuuuge beak.  They also have a patch of bright pink skin where their ears are.  These are one of my favourite duck species, and this little duck likes to sit on this particular log during nesting season.  At Lake Claremont, there were a lot of paperbark trees growing out of the water when it was a marsh.  When it became a lake, the trees died and left white/grey stumps behind.  They are very distinctive and give the lake its own individual look.  Birds love to perch and nest in these old dead trees.

This is acrylic on canvas.
Lake Claremont: Nankeen Night Heron by napalmnacey
Lake Claremont: Nankeen Night Heron
Going all Gould on you here.  Saw this bird on one of my walks around the lake, took a photo.  *Had* to paint it.  This is in watercolours again.  It's a Nankeen Night Heron, and they are lovely birds, the loveliest russet tone.  I really enjoyed painting it.
Lake Claremont: Lookout 02 by napalmnacey
Lake Claremont: Lookout 02
A bigger sketch of the view from the lookout.  Eventually I would like to do a very big piece indeed (A3 at least) in watercolour, and probably an acrylic painting at some point.  I am going very oldschool here, obsessing over a spot until I get it right.  
Lake Claremont: Lookout 01 by napalmnacey
Lake Claremont: Lookout 01
This lookout is a favourite spot of mine on the lake.  This is a small, quick watercolour sketch as a preparation for a bigger piece.
Lake Claremont: Reflections by napalmnacey
Lake Claremont: Reflections
Watercolour.  These bushes are delightfully reflected in the water on clear days at Lake Claremont.  I wanted to capture the symmetry involved, and the tranquility of the colours.

Personal Quote: "Sometimes I wish life had an 'undo' button..."
So I've been hideously quiet on the dA front, mostly because I've been doing traditional art and it's a bit of a shit to scan/photograph paintings and my computers haven't been up to the task.  But thankfully that situation has changed due to the generosity of family members who have cool equipment. My latest offering is my special piece, The Doctors: 50th Anniversary Tribute.  It was a real labour of love, getting it done in time for Swancon, and now I'm sikking it onto the world!  If you like it, do share it on tumblr, blogs, twitter, facebook, whatever.  I really want to see it reblogged by the official Doctor Who tumblr, cause it's a stupid little goal I like to have.  Hehehehe.

I am also working on original fine art projects, one set of animal and scenery studies from photography that I've done around a lake near where I live.  It's really exciting, and I look forward to painting for myself rather than for a fandom or group project.

I am also taking part in a group project a good friend of mine is trying to put together.  I have been working with a group of artists here in Perth, Australia, and we are all pop-culture interpretists types, it's really great to work with like-minded people who have widely varying styles.  It'll be a super fun project, and if it goes through I'll tell you all about it here.

Oh! I am also ramping up to create a Indie-Go-Go campaign so I can finally get the Cintiq I've always needed. Cintiq = better art!  :D

Until then, the next focus on the horizon is getting print media of my big Doctor Who piece up for people to buy.  I will probably have to go through different channels than dA, I'm afraid, but I'll let people know what's happening on my facebook page.  Please join it!
