Hayfield Meadow Grasses & Creatures

“Hayfield Meadow Grasses” [16th August 2022] by Matt The Unfathomable Artist, drawing with H, HB, 4B and 8B, signed in black ink on 280gsm 250mm x 300mm gesso primed canvas [pad], digitally edited graphic 2683 x 3110 pixels.

“Hayfield Meadow Grasses” is a pencil canvas created from two photos dated 2121hrs 8th July and 2044hrs 15th August 2022. 

The major composition is manufactured from the earlier image.  Cottongrass (mid-centre-proper) is included for artistic influence from the latter photograph.  I retained the cottongrass macro-composition derived from its same picture.

The artwork is in the model of plant pressings uncovered in botanical books. Also, early scientific drawings, which day at the least throughout the previous two millennia. 

The artwork is manufactured in 30 minutes.

Right here is the photograph taken 2121hrs 8th July:

Listed here is the photograph taken 2044hrs 15th August 2022:

As you can see with evaluating my artwork with the images, I bundled two buttercups and the perception of the meadow grasses transferring. The cottongrass in the latter photograph functions three horizontal and 3 vertically positioned depictions of same.

Although I did not check out to style a facial area from the cottongrass, it does seem to be to look as these types of. Similarly the buttercups consider a identical form, showing as eyes. I totally appreciate this piece. Fairly honestly it is as great as I would hope for in my ‘planning’ an artwork.

I publish ‘planning’ [an artwork] because I seldom do so. Most of my work is spontaneous as I attract or paint and so forth.

In simple fact in my rather spontaneous mood, please enable me share with you an artwork I built on/just before 29th June 2022, in close to a person hour and ten minutes. Entitled: “Gosling Strolling About”:

“Gosling Strolling About” [29th June 2022] by Matt The Unfathomable Artist, drawing with H, HB, 4B, 8B and charcoal stick, unsigned on 280gsm 250mm x 300mm gesso primed canvas [pad], digitally edited image 3026 x 2567 pixels.

I didn’t signal “Gosling Walking About” at the time as I was unsure if I loved the artwork. I do. Although I shall most likely not signal this artwork for no reason whatsoever. Apart from.. I enjoy this as it is on the canvas.

Extra spontaneity. Below are two pet artworks. Two different youthful puppies from in just my family members. I’m not guaranteed I at any time drew a puppy right before as an grownup, to be correctly straightforward.

The 1st is “Untitled Puppy Portrait”:

“Untitled Canine Portrait” [24th December 2021] by Matt The Unfathomable Artist, drawing with H, HB, 4B, 8B, environmentally friendly, yellow, blue and black pencils signed in blue ink on 280gsm 250mm x 300mm gesso primed canvas [pad], digitally edited graphic 2762 x 3462 pixels.

Surprisingly for the artwork, “Untitled Dog Portrait” attributes a pretty energetic relatives doggie.

Following we have a second family pet, a mischievous sweet puppy, I shall call “Untitled Pet Relaxing”:

“Untitled Doggy Relaxing” [9th July 2022] by Matt The Unfathomable Artist, drawing with H, HB, 4B and 8B, signed in black ink on 280gsm 250mm x 300mm gesso primed canvas [pad], digitally edited image 3400 x 2890 pixels.

This relatives pup uncovered it all rather hilarious for me to chase him as he ran close to with some backyard bouquets in his mouth the other working day. Right here, he is pictured comforting underneath some shade searching at me in July.

Hope you enjoy 🙂
