If you were as prolific as I am you wouldn't have time for so much wonderful detail and I'm sure you'd be unhappy with the less detailed work. I'm retire so there's no calls on my time
I've slowed down a lot although I did do three sketches in a cafe that I haven't posted yet. I can also flit between my scribbles, watercolour and acrylic paintings all in the same day
It is getting very disappointing Hov few people post now and some of those that post never reply to comments or comment on others work which is a big shame because when I joined there could be 3 or 4 pages of comment.
I'm please that the community art gallery that I'm a member of has just reopened at least I can show three pieces on a gallery wall now.
Thanks Martin. It is a good feeling when a client is happy. I recall one lady in tears and talking to my portrait of her departed dog. She gave me more money than I had asked for. I was just so pleased that she liked it.
I'm sure your clients will love Sofie's portrait. When I do a commission of an animal I always look at their faces when I show them my work. I can usually tell if they really like it or if they are doubtful. Let us know if they like it please.
Thanks Martin I was pleased how the perspective worked out on this. I much prefer working on canvas than paper and as you can imagine they take up lots of rooms. I must have at least 300 canvases then I have over a 1000 on A3 paper plus a big box full of pads from my scribbles so the occasional culling is needed
That you Martin for your kind comment. I've had a long break from acrylic painting because I've started to run out of storage. What I normally do now is look through them and attack the ones that I don't like, with a Stanley knife last time I chopped up 50 paintings
Hope your well, I was reading an article yesterday about Laurel & Hardy how they both died pretty well penniless, sad they brought so much joy for so many people. First time I have drawn or painted them, made me smile even as I was creating this.
Hi Martin...you are very welcome...I have been doing some art but not really at the caliber they should be at...most of what Im doing now are jus doodles and simple stuff...things that jus pop in my head at the moment and I jus go with it...nothing grand...lol...
