Roxy Marine

Roxy Marine by Alison Day

FINAL PAINTING #30 in a month long of daily paintings for: #PaintingSeptember #Paintseptember.

If you want to see what the design went on to be used for, go: HERE

It was further adapted (see below) and became a textile design for a young female sportswear line: Roxy—celebrating the pacific ocean and marine life.

If chosen, it could be shown at a Quicksilver & Otis (Art & Design College, Los Angeles) fashion show in 2015.

Boudoir Bear


Boudoir Bear by Alison Day

 

Apparently, Teddy used to growl, but his internals have long stopped working; now he sounds more like a rattle. Beige, balding in patches and one paw needs a mend—his patient orange eyes stare, revealing nothing.

Aromatic Green

I love growing herbs—the ease with which they transform from seed to a flourishing plant—pungent, spicy Basil is my favourite (along with coriander). #PaintingSeptember #Paintseptember

Perfect for on the move, or just chillin’ at a party.

Space Between

Space Between by Alison Day

My school art teacher would approve of the composition of this one: Don't draw the whole object she would say—make a selection.

Over the years, tall pinky-red hollyhocks seem be a feature in the gardens of houses past and present—as if they are following me.

Suede Passion

Suede Passion by Alison Day


Here's a quick study of wild peaches for #PaintingSeptember / #Paintseptember

Lovely to paint with their flattened shape, suede-like skin and they taste so much better than regular peaches.

First Guardian

First Guardian by Alison Day

Today's picture features a polished wooden sculpture of a monkey created by my mother. A familiar sight, standing on the upstairs landing of my childhood house. He is known as Fred and stands at an imposing 67 cms high. The decorative body embellishments of the illustration are my addition.
