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…

Thank you Mairi for commenting on Africa.

Thanks also for the link to Eel Pie Island. I started going to the Island in 1956 until Jan 1959 when I joined the RAF. After I left the RAF in 1962 I rarely went to the Island. I found the entries for 1956-1959 very interesting, our skiffle group is not mentioned, probably because we were only the interval group for Ken Collyer. We did however get to meet all the top jazz bands and skiffle groups around this time.

Once again thanks a lot, it has revived a lot of memories for me.

How could one not like the wee fox? I don´t think it is possible... it´s too good.

I know what you mean about oil pastels being a challenge.  They challenged my fingers and hand to the point that they were abraided... calloused nearly from rubbing the stucco with them. But are surprisingly subtle as a trade off.  I am now a fan of oil pastels... the best of both worlds, acrylics and oils.

And you are funny, too! I am part Scotch myself.

So glad to hear you like my murals!  Thanks, even though England stole the game from Colombia! It was your fault... :)
