I have a new art idea, and i need to paint designs as small as the size of a coin. Any advice on how i can paint that thin?
I was planning on putting in more detail, shading and getting rid of the pencil likes, but now I think it might actually be cool flat-ish and with the sketch showing through. Any opinions? (Acrylics on paper, 100 x 140 cm)
Please critique! Suggestions welcome
any tips are appreciated :)

The idea of being “sonder” influenced the concept of this work, that being the realisation that each passerby lives a separate life as vivid and as complex as our own. This is a light-hearted portrayal of individuals seeing things from their own perspectives. This diptych portrays various viewpoints of those involved in the scene, the title is open to interpretation as it applies to every person depicted, the person looking out at the surfer unaware that the beach is already full, the surfer looking back at the crowded beach, or the people in the crowd.
A naïve style is used convey playfulness, while musing about perspectives of the every day. Conceived from an experience I had at Tea Tree Bay Noosa where I caught myself being surprised that people had made their way to MY spot only to realise there was nothing that made it mine.
A4 canvas with acrylics. (44mins)
I made this piece from gum that I chewed… it’s gross I know but I had an idea and said heck with it I’m gonna give it a try. Background is acrylic all the gum is in painted. I had to find multi colored gum. I hope this is a good place to share this. I sold to a collector in Argentina.
I’m curious about any feedback about the color scheme, composition, style, etc.
I love the effect it has with the paint.
