'Tanzanite' close up by AugustSilk
'Tanzanite' close up
A close up shot of the shapes within 'Tanzanite', to better get a look at the shapes, colours, paint. The blank spaces beside the paint add a whole new perspective to the painting.
'Tanzanite' by AugustSilk
This is definitely my favourite of this year's works; I could not resist the shape of this gem coupled with its inner colours and shapes. This painting truly reflects my magpie tendencies to gaze at beautiful jewels for ages at a time. Oil on mounted mdf board.
'Turquoise Gold Inlay' by AugustSilk
'Turquoise Gold Inlay'
This is one of my favourites; the stunning turquoise gem within a beautifully designed gold inlay. The technique of leaving certain spaces blank is on purpose; it creates new relationships and depths between all the individual shapes and colours.
'AusMayan Mask' by AugustSilk
'AusMayan Mask'
For the fun, I made and painted a mask with the intention of covering it in ancient civilisation type decorations i.e wooden beads were the garb of these peoples. The style of the tube is Australian, whereas the style on the mask is Mayan. 
'Crystal Healing' by AugustSilk
'Crystal Healing'
Oil on primed fabriano paper. This painting represents man's connection to semi precious stones and precious stones for healing of various ailments. We are tied to these beautiful stones in so many ways.

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!
  • 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 :)
