My Art Journey

Posted on March 8, 2014 at 5:35pm 1 Comment

I love colour and I am not really a fine detail person! I find that when I start painting, I lose myself in the tones and hues more than the exact size and shape of things. It's true of my thinking style I am a big picture thinker and an ideas person and then I hand the fine detail over to someone else.

I always had a pencil and paper in my hand as a child and used to love sitting on trains and buses looking out of the window and drawing whatever I saw. However, I was not encouraged…

Yes I like them for that reason Mairi. No smell or mess and what mess it makes as you say water is the only cleaning medium you need. xxx

thanks I was surprised we wasn't friends until I tried to message you. when I started painting I a set of wztercolour, acrylic and oil paints from poundland. watercolour I hated, oil I preferred but the smell and the clean up was to much trouble. so I settled on acrylic. if these oils work the same as normal oils I might give them a try because I did like the longer drying times that come with oil paints
thanks for letting me know about them

they don't always go when they're need . I probably spent time on the doorstep at our home In London's east end breathing the wonderful air from the gas works on one side and the docks on the other side, I was probably covered in soot by the time I was taken in
