Story time: so, i finished working on this piece called ‘therover’ and as usual was about to coat it with a matte spray to protect it like i always do. i didn’t shake the spray can enough and the spray ended up forming white patches all over the artwork 😔.
after that, i was super bummed and ended up dropping the painting accidentally and it made a dent which you can see on the bottom left.
it sucks when you put a lot of effort into something and the smallest thing screws it up. lessons learnt the hard way 🥺. i will definitely revisit this piece and recreate it.
going in a completely different direction with my photography this week, i've been back out shooting a bit of architecture around plymouth. i missed my trip to london due to lockdown and so i headed into town to see if i could get anything there.
i decided to go for minimal and abstract views of some of plymouth's most well known buildings, taking in certain aspects of them, looking for patterns, shapes and colours to make something different.
these shots aren't going to be everyone's cup of tea but i've been gagging to shoot some buildings for ages so here's what i came back with.
i'm not going to tell you what buildings they are but if you're local you should be able to guess quite easily.
The taj mahal ' crown of the palace ', is an ivory - white marble mausoleum in the indian city of agra .
architect -: ustad ahmad lahauri
architectural style -:mughal architecture
the tomb is the central focus of the entire complex of the taj mahal. it is a large, white marble structure standing on a square plinth . four minarets frame the tomb, one at each corner of the plinth facing the chamfered corners.
because of its shape, the dome is often called an onion dome.
the complex is set around a large 300 metre square charbagh or mughal garden.
the taj mahal was designated as a unesco world heritage site in 1983, also it was declared a winner of the new 7 wonders of the world(2000- 2007) initiative.
2 inch cube pyrography⚠️
this is the first time i've really burned large areas with the flat side of the spear tip i use. in general, i utilize pyrography for line work, just cutting into the wood with the edge of the tip and creating outlines, and literal grooves. this allows the pigment (colored pencil or acrylic paint) to remain segregated from other colors, thus avoiding color bleeding and blending!
No se qué pensáis vosotros, pero la persona que diseñó en su día estas formas era una auténtica artista!
me parece que estas lineas no pueden ser más bonitas...o quizás con una mano de pintura a dos colores aún serán más bellas 🖤 🚐 🖤
И мы решили сделать небольшой розыгрыш на бесплатное посещение любого класса😱
Что нужно сделать?😎
- повторить эту хореографию
- выложить видео у себя в сторис
- отметить нашу школу и парней @tuzelity & @_ivanroofer_ ⠀
Итоги розыгрыша подведём в это воскресенье🎁
И самое главное, победитель не один😝 ⠀
slowly it gets warm and so does my semester project.
its all about the surnburn!
how does my skin change when it sizzles in the sun?
i slowly turn red, some parts stay light - others turn red and get a structure.
so my textiles also slowly turn red, get stains, overlap and become even darker.
there are gradients which are achieved by overlapping - i mainly work with screen printing.

Activity no. 2, 2d shape suduku:
to make it more interesting we added some shape suduku. 😍 games like sudoku, as well as crossword puzzles, offers good exercise and stimulation for the brain, sudoku can actually be very relaxing. adding these elements in learning can boost kids concentration and confidence..
I've always been obsessed with furniture and interiors and am slowly building up our little flat to what i've always wanted, spending as little as possible along the way. just got the glass top for the wave coffee table i've had for over 4 years but never used as i never had the space in my rentals, next to a chair that used to belong to my grandad, a rug i've had for over a decade from urban outfitters and a new lamp from @houseofdotcom

They say david hockney fell in love with swimming pools right upon his first trip to los angeles in 1964, as the flight was coming in over the city, with the surfaces of all those swimming pools blinking beneath him, reflecting the white californian light.
the culture of the west coast, the climate and constant vibrancy of colour, urged the artist in creating some of the most significant works in his career.
david hockney's swimming pools stand apart from the dominant tradition, representing the immaterial in an abstract but rather wonderful and humanly kind of way.
this workshop will not take place at chamber! it will use the grounds of a private swimming pool and its surrounding landscape of bright greens and palm trees instead, offering a greater sense of place.
we will use the location as our strating point and source of inspiration, whilst looking back at david hockney's particular feelings towards this theme and on-going fascination in depicting water..
Learning about 2d shapes
we used play doh and sticks to make the shapes, started off with watching a ppt and learnt about vertices, sides, symmetry and angles....
this activity was covered @braintrainqa summer camp.
