My friend the real artist

I love the work of my friend the artists  Mariusz Kaldowski which I mentioned here before.  Couple of weeks ago I visited his exhibition in Nymans, a National Trust park. He have special brush strokes in my view like a great master and I admire his work which inspired me a lot. That evening, I parked my car and walked to the exhibition, it was very dull evening, dark and gloomy all until I walked into the room where his work was displayed. There it was another world, full with flowers fields and trees that lit the air. All over sudden I walked from dump darkness, into lit paradise.. I have painted one of his paintings to show you what I meant. It is far from achieving any of his great work standards, but you can clearly get an idea and see the colours that are easily can lift anyone spirit any time. I think his paintings can really announce and bring us a proper  ‘Spring’


I can offer him on a small note, my little practice of  ‘Coloured Fields’ based on loose wet in wet technique to wish him a good luck with his new exhibition in London . If you around make sure to visit it as you will enjoy his work, anyway I do.

I am trying to keep my promise and paint small paintings each day if I can. Actually it is quite easy as the paper and paints are just beside me on the desk, so no excuse not to try. Every day when I have few minutes free I try it and it never takes more than 15-30 minutes to sketch one. Especially when I practice with water colours, wet in wet technique. I some time looking on other artists work and subjects and some time it is all mine. OK so need little more time to dry up and many more to paint if I ever want to get better.
