I really wish more people I know were on Facebook. It's a really sociable place for artists like us to share thoughts and discuss issues in Art. When I post something on facebook, I tend to think I have written a blog post which is why I haven't been posting a lot lately. I have to say I do enjoy the immediacy of facebook where people respond with a "like" (thumbs up) and leave a comment.
Anyway I've got around to posting here at last. My mind is full of Autumn at the moment. I have been out foraging in the hedgerows down by the nearby Grantham canal.
Here's a little set up telling the story of what I love about Autumn.
I have done a few workshops over the last week or two.
The autumn fruits on got me painting a new blackberries composition. Here are the WIPs.
I love painting those juicy fruits and the changing leaves allow you to go mad with the colours.
Also love the challenge of depicting a tangly bramble hedge with chinks of light shining through.
