More practice

It could look very similar architectures but it is a world apart.. location wise. I keep practicing as you can see and it is not always ending in a very good result. Some people tear them up and I feel you should not. I think that even if it is not that good enough, I still will put it here and show them to you. I think to myself, what type of journey it is going to be without the not so good ones? Beside do you think professional artists always get every paintings perfect? If sometime you feel that you want to give up, remember that you can only improve, after all it is a journey and there are going to be some sketches that will never reach the big size canvas! beside I probably will run my next experiment of glazing on those sketches… you never know.

I have been told that wearing lipstick can change your brain chemistry and boost confidence. This lady told me it was true. What do you think?

En plein air

The French called it ‘En plein air’ or as we say ‘in the Open Air’ which is also called peinture sur le motif ‘painting on the ground’ in French. Loved those French terms all I know is that I allways wanted to experience it… I have tried it few times before and found it much better to paint as you can see all the ‘Fiftey Shades of Grey’… did not try to bring sex into the sunbject, but it is true, you can see many more colours that a photograph some time hide. Today we spent couple of hours in ‘Sevenoaks Wildfowl Reserve’ (you must visit, it is a beautiful place)… I add a couple of sketches, Enjoy
