Thank you so much for your comments, my output of art is always very low in summer due to the fact I love gardening as much as art. With limited sunshine in UK so I try to spend much time as possible out there.
Thanks Dorothy. My throry is that I think it must have been the fashion to paint people in the same style at that time. If you go back a bit further to Carravaggios time the people looked relatively normal. Only a theory though.
Thank you for your comments on Christ on the Cross, we will learn from each other. Once stop learning we stop creating and that is the heartbeat of art, I am willing to try anything new to achieve my goals.
Hello Dorothy once again, glad that you like it. It was hard work trying to create that leather jacket look, it took time but in end if it achieves the end result you know you have got there. Thank you for your kind comments.
So pleased that you like “ Man without a gun “ Clint Eastwood. My understanding is it affects men more than women my spectrum falls under the reddish grey colours, I have learnt to live with it and as far as painting goes I read a lot and look at videos for colour tones and skintones and just add the colours what is required and if it looks good to me then I carry on and hope it works. I Went through a period where I was fascinated by detail and using the routine pen gave me that ability. If you have time please have a look at Christ on the Cross which took quite awhile to create.
I take something called Rivotril when I go to bed which helps a lot as it seems to settle the sciatic nerve. I am obliged to visit a neurologist yearly for the prescription. Keep smiling! Can you enjoy a glass of wine? Mxx
I was surprised at the number you said there are i'd have thought that the lower than average tempretures would have effected the more but then in the summer you have longer daylight hours than we have in the south
It's hard to know who'd be most surprised the adder or the person.
there he was stretched out catching a few ray and then his whole day goes downhill its no wonder. He got angry.
I only know of one person to have got bitten back in the 1970s , He was fishing on the riverbank and just sorted himself out a playful of food, he was reaching out for something on the plate and felt something that shouldn't have been there and it bit him on the hand.
His hand and arm swoll up but he was allowed home from hospital the next day
Bon courage - as the French say! Just take each day as it comes. Hope you are able to sleep. I understand perfectly as I have a fused spine and a hip replacement, so an uncomfortable body is a daily encumbrance . Mxx
Oh Dorothy - I do hope the health issues improve very soon - this ageing process id a nightmare, on the other hand we are lucky to have grown old! All the best. Both my teacher and framer were quite touched by their silly gifts! Mxx
