'Crescent Silver' by AugustSilk
'Crescent Silver'
Oil on canvas. Painting of a silver bracelet with turquoise set in a crescent moon shape (although you cannot see that)
'Precious' by AugustSilk
Oil on canvas, with hair piece attached. Sentimentality is the main theme of this piece, the idea of a keepsake, or a keepsake within a keepsake. Something so small and simple, that could mean the world to someone.
'Linear Bloom' by AugustSilk
'Linear Bloom'
I became inspired by a particular paper, and made a large bloom of patterns. Love bursting of life and flow of patterns, as if a flower growing.
'La Affair du Collar' Oil on canvas by AugustSilk
'La Affair du Collar' Oil on canvas
As part of this year's theme of 'Uses and Symbology of Jewellery', I really wanted to use the fact that one of the sparks that set off the French Revolution and the death of Marie Antoinette, was the supposed purchase of an exquisite diamond necklace more than 2,000 carats in weight. Her whole appearance is false, bar the blood that drips onto the diamonds that cost her her life and throne.
Golden Ship by AugustSilk
Golden Ship
Photos of exhibits at the Tempelhof Technology Museum in Berlin.

Hello there :) My name is Cat, and I'm an artist/illustrator constantly seeking to improve and explore my own imagination's ideas. I would like to improve to a quality of skill worthy of commissions and sales of my artwork. Feel free to browse my work!
  • Mood: Content
  • Listening to: Chris Rea- On the Beach remix
  • Reading: fanfictions (loving them!)
  • Watching: FF IX walkthroughs
  • Playing: Pokemon Soulsilver
  • Eating: cola bottle sweets
  • Drinking: strong tea
Well, one year of Fine Art is behind me, with successfully passed exams with reasonable grades :) Funny thing about fine art is: there IS no right way to do it, only criteria to meet with a personal flare added in.

Now comes the massive illustration binge (mwahahahaha!) before I'm thrown back in the saddle of fine art. Having said that, I did learn some wonderful techniques with oil paint, acrylic washes, and papers. But am now lacking in a studio space that I'm allowed to get messy. Work with what you got, they say. I have new projects I want to put time into before September, so that's gonna be good!!

Entering July now (June was crazy for beach and camping) and am so looking forward to the time and freedom!

Hope everyone has a fantastic summer!!

I've read your absolution and I must say that I'm quite enjoying it.
There are some grammar issues and language issues that make it a little hard to read in some places though; if you'd like I can proof-read it and make edits to make it a little easier to read? It's still a really good story and I'd like to read more of it :)
AugustSilk Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Yeah okay, could you tell me what parts are hard to read? I'll try and upload more of it, but further through it needs some editing
ganchroi Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Just some of the grammatical structure, like commas in odd places that completely change the pauses of the sentence to the point where they no longer make sense? Grammar is your best friend in writing, but you need to treat it with respect or it'll ruin your writing D:

And that's okay; as long as it takes to make it right :)
AugustSilk Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Yes indeed. I'll bear that in mind ^.^ Maybe I'll wipe them off, edit the story, and put em back up again
