Painting today, I am not sure about it. I’ve made up a sky and sea , with no reference. The colours are strong and lend to the imagination of it and are bright and cheerful, but I feel uneasy. I’ve just realised why I copy what I see but love making abstracts and cannot put them into one. I cannot accept or trust my own judgement if its meaning isn’t there. I have a strong need that they be one or the other. I’d love to know how you feel about it.
I make my own wax medium and Painted on a medium sized canvas today. I love the results, the textures and colours. I cannot upload it for sale on Bluethumb till it dries.
I have been given the opportunity for blogging on my Bluethumb profile, called studio and all those who love and value my artwork can follow me there. I’ll be pretty busy keeping up with it all, but loving it. I haven’t got much to show right now but I have been drawing again, so I’ll share that with you.
I was having a painting session today and my marks brought out a fighting character, I think we’re going to have the fight of our lives, with unemployment and the global economics.
I’m showing the early marks first
30×30 cm acrylic on canvas.
finished painting this while I was drawing portraits and the landscape. It was nearly overlooked but I liked the colour and it had something special.
Painted in Oils and it comes in a box frame. I will upload it to Bluethumb when its dry.
I started to paint from a lovely photo that a man named Colin in Wallaura took, he kindly let me use it. Hopefully finish it tomorrow, it has sheep in the foreground.
I also got a commission to paint this scene this morning. Hopefully can get that beautiful glow in the clouds with the right colour Waiting for a larger canvas now that I ordered today.
I was asked to draw the Partners children as well, was a pleasant surprise. I didn’t think I could when I saw the photographs. But they’re happy with results,
I drew them on Monday, when it was too cold to be in my shed come studio. Was a marathon attempt,
Did a marathon today, most ever portraits in one day. A friend commissioned me for her mother’s birthday. Was very enjoyable too.
Sorry about the light. The papers white I should take another photo in daylight.
I wanted to draw a pretty woman today. I’ve come to the conclusion that they are pretty boring to draw, and hard too because there’s not much to latch onto in the way of shadows wrinkles or muscle differences. Anyway I like what I came to draw in the end and I’ve tried its luck by putting it up for sale, perhaps someone will like her.
