So yes, I have been painting since those painting lessons last year, building up supplies, dabbling and experimenting with it all!
I did say I’d probably share some related posts so here’s one to start with – inspired by the photograph below, using acrylic paints.
I always say ‘inspired by’ because I’ve decided not to try and force my paintings to look exactly like the photo, where I’ve tried to do this – sometimes it ruins the piece (for me), from trying too hard, and the joy of the process is lost. I prefer to just go with the flow and let it be whatever it turns out to be (though sometimes this approach doesn’t end well lol, but that’s ok, it’s all just for fun)!!!
A lot of art just hints at an image, place or scenario without clearly defining it – sometimes that’s the beauty of it….anyway enough of the artsy talk 🎨
Most of the paintings I’ve done so far are based on photographs I’ve taken and collected over the years – so if the painting gives me fond memories and takes me back to that time and place then it’s a personal success for me.
I’ll be trying to catch up on as many of your blog posts as possible today…..well overdue!! 😉
Wishing you all happy blues – and a great week ahead x 🤗🔆💙
