painting my old friend.


I wanted to share with you a few things i have been working on over Easter. I have finally got back into painting, It has been years, well since I graduated from university I haven’t painted a Canvas.

It felt like I had been visited by an old friend when i sat down to paint, I have truly never left so calm and free as I do when i paint or draw. To be able to create something without worrying about a client or monetary gain is what i have missed. I love my little Wooden chest of paints and arty things.

When i paint on canvas I often use Acrylic paint, I think my next adventure into painting with be with oils, even though I did a degree in fine art i am yet to master the use of Oil paints. My passion has been spurred on from finding all my old pre-raphaelite books and venturing to the National Gallery to see the Turner exhibition i am such a geek when it comes art.

    They're absolutely beautiful! Why are you so damn talented? I love the pre-Raphaelite brotherhood. I could spend days admiring their works, especially Waterhouse. It just reminds me of a dream world.

    You are super talented :). I finally drew my first piece the other day after not drawing since I left school 7 years ago. I understand the calm that goes with it – I forgot how lovely it was to sit and draw :).

    I just love the look of your painting kit let alone your painting canvases.

    Use to feel so calm and inspired when painting or drawing when young, the subject Art was always my fave, but have no talent though. 🙂
