Artists that inspire me: Katie Young

Katie Young is a young Australian artist from Melbourne.

She works predominantly in oils and watercolour.

Her work is almost always a collection of portraiture or figurative work. She's also a photographer and a designer.

I like the soft dreamy tones she uses, and the contrast with the line-drawings on most of her canvases.

I am not sure whether the paintings on her website are organized according to date created. If they are, she seems to be changing her style a bit to more male figures and stronger face colours.

I have a preference for the paintings I'm showing here. I can't find a blog or a Facebookpage for her, so I'm guessing she doesn't have one.

She does have a website though, so if you want to find out more about this artist, go have a look here.

That's it for now. I am being busy with all kinds of projects, that needed to be finished by yesterday preferably. Needless to say I'm running short on time again. I will be back on Friday for the Paint Party though, because I promised to treat myself to at least a few hours of painting or drawing tomorrow..... Hopefully that'll make up for all the hours I spend trying to figure out my taxes .... UGH!

Thanks so much for being here! See you on Friday  ♥ ♥ ♥
