as I Shared I felt I couldn’t paint for a long time. I have been given a portrait commission which I started yesterday, it can be finished a little more but I’m happy with the likeness. Feel I’m back on track.
I’ve also been painting some abstracts on paper with wax medium and oil paint which I have uploaded to bluethumb, link is on my homepage here. Except for this one not uploaded yet
I have given landscapes to exhibitions and sold others so I need to paint for a local exhibition. People like and understand them more than abstracts and I like painting them too. This one has taken 3 hours or so to map out and mix the colours. There will be a lot more work done before its finished.
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.
Had a lovely play today. Feels so liberating. My live Facebook was just about ok, but I wasn’t happy, I forgot a few things and my camera stand was difficult to manover, and I overdid a drawing, a sure sign my mind went out of gear, ha ha anyway back to today’s painting it will be on Bluethumb soon for sale.
I really enjoyed painting yesterday. I painted 2 together and was really in the mood, not second guessing myself and I think it shows. I’ve uploaded one of them to Bluethumb, the second in a couple of days.
Here’s the second. I painted in my usual style of putting down some colours and working intuitively follow where they led me.
The paper I use is really strong University Cartridge paper . Poster size.
