Abyssal 2 by Puddingbat
Abyssal 2
Acrylic on canvas board. A view of my depression differing from a charcoal edition to be exhibited and auctioned as part of the Mental Health and the Brain exhibition in association with SANE and University College London www.uclneurosoc.org/artexhibit… It's about how focussed depression makes the mind so the beautiful sky and everything pleasant is removed from life, and how dark life feels. I drew the competition entry on the Friday before the due date (everything at the last minute as usual) and then painted this version on the Saturday then had the decision of which one to send in. I kept this one as I felt the black and white was more stark and visceral than this more pleasant version. I tried to make it mostly correct so it differs from the reference photo a bit as I couldn't be bothered to make it exact.

No Image
Slightly strange picture I made for my husbands birthday card: a watercolour interpretation of a broken image icon. Tidied in photoshop as I didn't stretch the watercolour paper first and it cockled like billyoh.

Commission for a companion for a cat, a dragon on some wedding invites and relatexing some weapons and making some larp replicas. 
In other news: my councilor tells me I'm charging too little for my art: Instead of buying cards or presents (cos I'm cheap) I make cards or draw presents instead. Self esteem issues and depression has devalued my work, and chucking it into the wind here and having no comments and few favourites doesn't help much. 
What am I doing wrong? I need to draw more (hurr derr) but that is tricky when I have a mucky house with stuff that always needs putting away. I need to charge more (£6/8 per hour is unacceptable my councilor says, and so is £16 per hour... just) How should I value my own work when I know friends can't necessarily afford it? Sure, I'll charge a bit more for all those corporate commissions I'm getting...... tumbleweed..... crickets chirp.....
