Today’s Art (19th April 2015)

Well, I’m still in the mood for making B&W drawings based on photos, so I decided to make yet another picture of Aberystwyth – based on one of the old photos I took when I was there in 2009.

Anyway, one of the many cool things about Aberystwyth is that if you look at certain parts of it in the right way (and in the right weather), they look like something from a wonderfully gothic old American horror movie.

Today’s Art (12th February 2015)

Alas, uninspiration struck again! So, for today’s painting, I eventually ended up making a somewhat rushed landscape based on one of the photos I took of Aberystwyth in 2009.

As a blog exclusive, I’ll also provide the lineart for this painting too.

Today’s Art (16th December 2014)

Although I have no plans to re-start my “Aberystwyth Series” as a regular feature again, today’s painting is based on another photo of Aberystwyth that I took in 2009 (although I used a fair amount of artistic licence, since grey weather looks more dramatic in photos than it does in paintings).

As a blog exclusive (since this painting will probably be on DeviantART by now), I’ll also include a copy of the photo that it’s based on too.

“Aberystwyth Series” – The Next Painting :)

Well, although my “Aberystwyth Series” will be going on hiatus for at least a few days (and it probably won’t be a daily series when/if it returns), I’m really proud of today’s Aberystwyth painting 🙂

"Aberystwyh - Memories Of The Hill" By C. A. Brown

“Aberystwyh – Memories Of The Hill” By C. A. Brown

Aberystwyth – Memories Of The Hill” is a painting based on my memories of Penglais Hill in Aberystwyth and, although I probably got quite a few details wrong, it turned out surprisingly well 🙂

“Aberystwyth Series” – The Next Painting :)

[Note: Although there will probably be a new Aberystwyth painting tomorrow, I don’t know if this series will remain a daily series or not. At the very least, I’ll probably be taking a break from it for a few days [Don’t worry, my regular daily blog posts won’t be affected], but it’ll possibly end up becoming a series which I’ll work on occasionally when I feel like it (like my “Damania” comics) rather than a daily series, I don’t know.]

Well, I’ve made another painting for my “Aberystwyth Series” and I quite like how it turned out.

"Aberystwyth - From A Library Window" By C. A. Brown

Aberystwyth- From A Library Window” was painted from memory and, hopefully, it looks something like a view of Aberystwyth at night from one of the windows of the university library.

“Aberystwyth Series” – The Latest Painting :)

Sorry that I’ve posted this slightly later than usual, but here’s the latest painting in my “Aberystwyth Series“. At the moment, I’m not sure how long this series will continue for (at the very least I may or may not take a break from it in the near future, I don’t know).

"Aberystwyth - Benches" By C. A. Brown

“Aberystwyth – Benches” By C. A. Brown

Aberystwyth – Benches” is a slightly surreal painting of some of the benches near Aberystwyth’s coast (on the pavillion/square opposite an amazing shop called “Stars”), based on an old photo I took in 2009. Unfortunately, I don’t think that I got the perspective quite right in this painting though.

“Aberystwyth Series” – The Next Painting :)

I’m very proud to announce that I’ve made another painting in my “Aberystwyth Series” 🙂

"Aberystwyth - Alexandra Road Again" By C. A. Brown

“Aberystwyth – Alexandra Road Again” By C. A. Brown

Well, I felt like making another painting of Alexandra Road (based on another old photo) and I’m quite proud of how “Aberystwyth – Alexandra Road Again” turned out, even if it ended up being very purple. Hold on, that isn’t a bad thing, purple is an absolutely awesome colour…
