4 Stages of an ice cream van painting. Stage 3…where it all went a bit psychedelic!
4 stages of an ice cream van. Stage 2….more like a complete revamp. Although this improved the composition The colours were too muted. I was actually after something more like pop art.
Over on FB and Instagram I’m posting the four stages of an ice cream van painting.
Four stages of an ice cream van. Stage 1. I set this as some sort of a challenge for my upcoming show…to produce a painting of an ice cream van; a chance to go slightly off track and use some different colours. My new neon colours arrived too late to be used. Very unhappy with this first effort but it was a beginning.
My new website has gone live. It’s been quite an effort to rebuild since the old one was in iWeb, a program that apple stopped supporting some time ago. This one is built with a Mac specific program called blocs, which takes some getting used to but works well eventually. Anyway, I’ve been able to make the site mobile friendly and also integrate some sort of provisional shop in order to offer the long awaited fine art prints. Have a look on http://www.petemonaghan.com thanks!
This is a slightly more abstracted version of fishing boats. These are working boats from Port Magee, Co. Kerry, Ireland and the piece has recently sold at Oriel Ffin-y-Parc Gallery in Llanrwst, north Wales.
apparently this is the way to go…showing one’s work in-situ…I couldn’t be bothered witha stock photo however, and my living room is non-existent so I decided to draw (a fairly neutral) living room with one of my recent paintings on a grey wall. The painting is “Blaen Pennant-II”, 40 x 40cm in my trademark grey frame.
