Thanks Martin, been a while since I posted anything on the site. When the weather is nice I would rather be out there pottering around. I think this must be my third version of this image. I did this few nights ago, so pleased that you like it.
Thank a lot Martin , I have to thank my cousin for suggesting the write ups , he told me" sometime a painting can be enhanced by a bit of background story but other time they want to make their own story up" I chose to tell my version of things..
I 'd worry to much about how i write to even think of approching someone about illustrated books not that I'd have the faintest idea where to go with one
I don't suppose the cyanide, warfin, that they used to give themselves a buzz, the white lead that they on their faces and in their wigs also the many other strong drugs that were used . Even the original group humble victory v lozenges were laced with ether, chloroform cannabis.
He was certainly a strange old thing Lord bath i dont suppose he'd have sold anything without his name
Many thanks. keeping up with me in full flow would be extreamly difficult as i got to 25 in one busy day. It doesn't matter how busy a day is there are alway lulls where i can get a few scribbles in and then I often batch colour them so i might have 4 or 5 picture and using one colour at a time flick through the pages using that colour until I've used the colours I want , its an extreamly fast process as i don't have to keep cleaning my brush
Thanks Martin . To be truthful looking at your art I always thought that You've been classically trained as they look like they're in the style of some of the old masters which make your work all the more amazing that you're self taught. Your practice sessions must have been long and hard won and you must have a great deal of Patience and dedication ,
for me I have very little patience and very little dedications and if i'm not happy with a painting in 3 to 4 hour I'd probably blank it out. It's why I do so many of my scribbles they're fast, i can record all the days events in an houror two of scribbling
Talking to other people who do work like yours they always say that find it almost impossible to paint in a looser style and finding it frustrating that every time it gets a Bit Freer they have a fight with themselves trying not to to correct things. i do envy your dedication but I think I'm happy with things how they are with what I do.
That's a lot Martin. Apart from a bit of pottery at school I've not had any art training so I try and make the lack of it with enthusiasm and having as much fun as i can with painting.. I managed another quick painting while waiting for the grandkids to come out of school and as i caught a glimpse of the river Thames in my travels today i thought I'd do one of the people fishing on the old sea wall
Thank you very much on your comment on my scribbles. It has been mentioned before about doing some form of children's book but i wouldn't know where to start . These only started out as a visual diary and they still are about events that happen around me best wishes paul
