One thing I’m looking forward to sharing more with you in my ‘new’ studio is: works-in-progress... not just posey/styled shots, however good my live-in (10 year old) photographer is at taking those (😜 see previous post). That is assuming you want to see more #wips?? X Mel at Southland, New Zealand

Hi all, sorry for the lack of updates lately, I've been super busy over at @adifferent build but I'm still making time to paint. I'm almost ready for my upcoming exhibition which I'll hang next week at the awesome Crafted collective gallery here in Oamaru. I'm feeling really privileged and excited to be able to show my work here, and also quite nervous! This painting was looking really dark and a long way off finished until I took it outside into the natural light, now I'm thinking just a few darks and highlights and I'll be done.

Fundraising for Worlds Biggest Tattoo time 😁😆😂 It’s that time again Team, round 2 of my back piece in a couple of weeks means I’m trying to rustle up a bit of extra pocket money, I did well today by walking past 8 Op Shops and not setting foot inside ANY, so technically saving by not buying crap 🤣 These two cuties are original pencil illustrations, approx A4 size. As is (not framed) $50 each plus p&p Message me for sales 🖤x **Update** Comeback Queen has Sold 🖤x #saving #fundraising #greatcause #tattootime #artoftheday #artwork #artforsale #illustration #illustrator #pencilart #sketch #popsurrealism #cuteness #nzartist #artistsoninstagram

WIP: Not much to see...not a very productive day. My problem is that I am having to make up petals in some areas as I am pushing back the top peony whereas it was coming forward in my reference shot. I also reduced the size of it by removing some outer petals. I'm going to work on the first colour layer of the top peony so I can decide how I'm going to tackle the peony petals where it meets the large one. Likely I will add a leaf 🤔 . . . . . . . . #peony #peonypainting #oilpainting #oilonlinen #nzartist #contemporaryartist #nature #gardeners #landscapers #artcollectors #florists #flowerlovers #homedecor #interiordesigners #stylists #artgalleries #pink #pinkpeonies #beauty #artistsofinstagram #artstudio #leedewsnap #instaart #flowerpainting at Mission Bay, New Zealand

This painting is ‘Downtown’, named because (to me) it looks like the shadows of a city when viewed from above, with buildings of different heights, and a tangle of roads (more like a NZ city than an American one!). It’s in my current exhibition at Thistle Hall Gallery, Cuba Street, Wellington....and it’s still available 😉 Size is 760mm square, acrylic on canvas. There’s subtle detail to it that doesn’t show in a photograph. White on white is so hard to capture!⠀ .⠀ #amandawilkinson at Thistle Hall Community Venue

12 years ago when I started painting I had to rely on natural talent, and those paintings were pretty average. The paintings I paint now are an obsessive compulsive determination to learn my craft. So many hundreds of hours of painting/practicing - learning from the moments when the 'penny drops are behind what I do now and there is lots to still learn and create 😃 This is one of my favourites from 2018 Cheers, Wayne at Papamoa Beach

My husband, @timgemmell you are the most supportive person of my passion. You encourage me, look after the kids so I can have days/weekends away printing, sometimes you push me when I don’t want to be pushed (but I need it) you can be my harshest critic (not that I always listen) and you believe in me. What would I do with out you!! Being creative is what I love doing - your the best for helping make it happen!!! Thank you, THANK YOU!!!!😍😍😍. This photo was taken at my recent solo exhibition. * * * * * #paint #photo #photograoh #painter #painting #sunrise #sunset #ocean #land #sky #clouds #artist #nzart #newzealand #nzartist #kylierusk #kylieruskart #kylieruskartist #home #artsy #interior #interiors #homedecor #landscape #newzealandart #art #interiordesign #contemporaryartist #auckland
