Inspired by the arrival of Autumn, Approaching All Hallows’ Eve, The New Forest and a pair of High Heels, I’ve just finished my latest picture.
Lots of people ask me how I go about starting a piece, so I thought this time I would see if I could create a small movie / animation and so I photographed the picture every 15 minutes. I set an alarm on my oven timer ( the alarm is really annoying and quite loud) this forced me to get up and walk away from the picture to reset it, i don’t think I would of stuck to it otherwise!
I’ve uploaded the video to You Tube, seen here: Creation of the Witch Picture by KOG
When it came to creating and colouring the picture I was inspired by the New Forest, It’s such a beautiful place, every year we try to go there for a little break and ride bikes through the forest, there are wild ponies everywhere and little cottages with thatched roofs. I especially love Burley Village: see link http://www.burleynewforest.co.uk/ we call it ‘The Witch Village’ and this is where I brought this amazing pair of heels, WITCH then became the colour inspiration for the picture.
They are great aren’t they! x
