Hallo all to all Arty Folks.
I am a Disabled Lady Artist beavering away at home, painting most days, since i cannot work now due to ill health. Painting keeps me sane and calm..and i feel i have "Achieved Something"..even if the painting turns out to be terrible (in my opinion). I am loving working in Acrylics (again).Got a teaching dvd by Hashim Akib and am experimenting with style an colour..and quite liking some of the results. Am off to a life painting class on Saturday 17/11/12..am excited and anxious and a bit daunted all at the same time. It s an all day session with a Professional Artist. Have experimented with reflections in water (Used ref photos i took myself) Also Backlit trees and salt marsh landscapes. Have just taken some photos of " Me" for self portrait attempts (also have large mirror). Will sort out technicalities of loading photos onto laptop soon, am not really tech savvy enough to do it myself. Am also using old printed canvas' from charity shops to reuse and practice on. Some landscape/still life. Am really spoilt for subject matter.. i live in the Beautifull County of Norfolk. Am using a sketchbook regulary, which now permanently resides in the car dash...just in case i see something good when i'm out and about.... will let you know how i get on at the LIfe Painting Day.
