Paintings by Chloe Early

Chloe Early born 1980 is a London-based artist who creates beautiful paintings exploring the themes of weightlessness and gravity. Working in oils on linen and aluminium panel, Chloe has developed a unique style that is simultaneously lush and raw. The romantic and the gritty meet in her paintings, which tease out a distinctively poetic worldview through the juxtaposition of extremes.

My latest haul - bags from the Van Gogh Museum Shop!

I just got back from a trip to Amsterdam, where I spent a long time drooling over the souvenirs in the Van Gogh Museum Shop. I didn’t have space in my luggage to bring anything back with me, but luckily the shipping charges in the online shop are pretty reasonable so I sent off for a package for me and my friends - the Almond Blossom bowling bag, Sunflowers tote bag and Head of a Skeleton backpack.

If you’re a fan of Van Gogh like me I’d definitely recommend checking out the online shop, even if you can’t make it out to Amsterdam to the museum itself. The bags are nice quality and aren’t too expensive considering they’re from a souvenir shop. Profits are used to directly support the museum and fund new acquisitions for their collection, so it’s a nice way to support Van Gogh’s legacy.

Here I’ve barely moved past the stage of 2D thinking. My shadows are all flat pools of value, with no inner separations or rendering to speak of. The same could largely be said of my light areas, with a few small exceptions in the face and on the thigh and torso. If our 2D work is accurate, then we need almost no 3D work to create depth - the mind of our viewer will do that for us. The opposite is not true. Rendering in earnest takes a great deal of time, and the work is considerably more difficult to memorize.
