OUTLINES Art Exhibition

Bec Brown Exhibition - OUTLINES Poster 4

Hello hello! 2 weeks ago I got told I was next in line for exhibitions at Little Beehive Co-Op! So since then, I have been working on a range of artworks to feature. I am sooo excited to have my work on view in such a stunning & creative environment.
The artwork has a selection of work featuring portraits, hair, florals, & of course…birds.

The exhibition titled ‘OUTLINES’ is on display from August 4 – September 8 at Little Beehive Co-op, 123 Hardy Street, Nelson xobec


New Art – Originals

Bubblegum Cheeks - art original by Bec Brown 3

A few of my latest works! I have started adding original artworks to the Etsy Shop – these are not made into prints unless otherwise stated. This way they are yours and only yours!
Im really excited to be producing a more abstract range as well. When I started my Etsy Shop, the art had a lot of doodling it and felt more controlled. These pieces – which have bright colours & abstract drawings just keep flowing out of me. I feel so absorbed in them. Also incorporating text has been fun! I have never really investigated typography so this is a good way to explore & start.

…Annnd I’m back!

Bec Brown + summer daisies

Well guys. Its been 2 months since I last posted on my beautiful little corner of the internet. Ive had mixed emotions about this blog and what to do next with it. By not focusing on my blog, I have created a huge amount of artwork and also had an adventure to America!
I have decided to use it more like a portfolio of my art, design & photography – instead of a blog that I update 3-4 times a week. This way I can focus hugely on my art.
I dont want to ‘get over’ posting on here and desert this fun world of blogging!
So here is a wee update of what I’ve been upto – snapshots from my iPhone…

I’ll be sharing a few iPhone snapshots of my holiday to America soon, and also all the art Ive been creating.
If you’d like to keep up to date on a regular bases with my art, I am always adding new images to Instagram & Facebook.

WIP: Floral Framed Peacock

Tapestry inspired peacock watercolour drawing by Bec Brown of Clouds of Colour 1 Tapestry inspired peacock watercolour drawing by Bec Brown of Clouds of Colour 2 Tapestry inspired peacock watercolour drawing by Bec Brown of Clouds of Colour 3 Tapestry inspired peacock watercolour drawing by Bec Brown of Clouds of Colour 4

I’ve been working on this piece for the past few weeks. Each night I sit down with a piping hot liquorice flavoured tea (if any of you love black jellybeans then this is a must-try!) & draw. This…has got to be one of my absolute fave pieces! I love the floral pattern, position of the peacock & the negative space. It was inspired – partly – by old tapestries but done in a new graphic style.
Above are a few pics of it before it went off to the framers this week – I can’t wait to see it framed!
Hope you’re all having a lovely week. xobec


Friday

Hellooo!
I hope you’re all happy & well. Winter has defo started to arrive in Nelson. Fareeeeezing nights & beautiful sunny days.
This week I worked on a cute wee range of gift tags, available in a pack of 8 on the Clouds of Colour Shop.
Work has been sooo exciting this week as the container of American Vintage arrived into the store – you can read here and here for my adventure to LA where my boss & I raced around collecting beautiful furniture for the store here in Nelson.
