Actually I could spend all day on the internet browsing other artist's work. I sometimes have to stop myself or I'd never get any of my own projects done. I think what fascinates me is how much diversity there is out there.
We have always tended to work with earthy colours and matt finishes but I really love the bright colours and glossy varnishes that some artists use.
I don't know about Annemarie, but I'd never be adventurous enough to try them myself. Somehow when I think of me creating that type of piece it just doesn't "fit". That's why we want to dedicate part of the site to looking at other people's work.
It's not just about having the confidence to try out the bright colours for me. It's also about not having the patience to work on the intricate pieces some artists create.
I absolutely love Dan Reeder's work. His meticulous attention to detail is a real inspiration to me, but I know it's not something I would ever attempt to do myself.
Paper mache really is such a versatile medium that your imagination is the only limit to what can be made. Well, that and your willingness to play around.
I always say that I know my limitations, but that's not very adventurous.
I know I should try out other things, but I just need someone to give me a good kick in the pants to get on with it.
What's your favourite type of piece to work on? Do you think you have a style, or are you willing to have a go anything?
Feel free to share your story and photos of your pieces on the Your Art section of the site. We'd love to see your work.
