Something Different

I thought I’d try something different!

I do like observational drawing, transferring what I see on to paper, it’s very satisfying. Also I think the best time to do something is at the point of inspiration, then the work flows. I find if I think about things too much I struggle to get things out of my head and on to the paper/canvas. I had the Idea I wanted to paint a person, so I picked up a magazine that was close at hand and just started to copy an image. First in a green crayon, then in graphite, then I started to apply paint. I must say when I started I wasn’t that sure of myself, I didn’t particularly like what was happening on the canvas, the main thing was I was enjoying doing it. As it went along I started to like it. Now I can’t stop looking at it! I’m Just as pleased as I am with an abstract work when it turns out well. Guided by the paint, the colours and my intuition, not having too much of an idea what outcome I want.
