Today’s Art (17th December 2016)

Well, I know that I’ve made paintings of this place before, but today’s painting is something of a tribute to The Bay – it was once perhaps the best pub/nighclub in the world, before it’s sudden and shocking closure in 2009.

Well, although I was planning to make another gothic painting, I suddenly had a very strong moment of inspiration and decided to make another painting of the room I lived in during one of the best years of my life.

This painting required a lot of digital editing/ effects and I still don’t know if I got the gloomy lighting quite right, but I’m quite proud of how it turned out.

Ha! Inspiration! Today’s painting is a 1980s/90s cyberpunk style painting, drawn and painted from memory, of the university library in Aberystwyth. Although it took me three attempts to get the perspective right in this painting and although this painting required more digital editing than usual, I’m really proud of how it turned out 🙂

If you want to see the “work in progress” B&W line art version of this painting [which contains slightly more detail], then it can be seen in this post.

Well, this is the last painting in my “Punk Aberystwyth” series and I’m really proud of how it turned out 🙂 The musical inspiration for this painting was probably a surprisingly gloomy and melancholy song called “Dirty Magic” by The Offspring.

Wow! It’s been ages since I last made any zombie art! So, for today’s punk-themed Aberystwyth painting, I thought that I’d paint some punk zombies.

The musical inspiration for this painting was probably “Where They Wander” by Horrorpops (I wasn’t listening to it when I was painting, but I listened to it a lot when I was in Aberystwyth a few years back).

Well, I’m still in the mood for making punk-themed art and, after listening to “Days Of The Phoenix” by AFI for at least the hundredth time, I thought that I’d make a painting of one of the best punk/metal clubs that I’ve ever had the chance to visit.

I am, of course, talking about an absolutely amazing pub called “The Angel” in Aberystwyth, which I have lots of great memories of.

Well, I wasn’t really in the mood for making gothic art, so since I was listening to a lot of AFI a while before I made this painting, I thought that I’d try my hand at making some punk art.

I’m not sure how this ended up turning into a painting of a giant tortoise emerging from the coast near Aberystwyth, but it seemed like a fun idea at the time. This painting ended up requiring slightly more digital editing than usual though.
