How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on this email(email@example.com ) for the full details, Have a nice day
Hi Dianne, thank you so much for your comments - I sort of agree with you about the splotches except when I make them ha ha I enjoy so much the putting down of paint and get extraordinarily frustrated when it will not do what i hope and I do not know what to do about it. when I do splotches there are lots less expectations so get some pleasure out of it - if that makes any sense at all but yes I will certainly continue with the other style as well- went to workshop hoping to learn something about freedom of expression and paint application and certainly got that
but not quite in the way I expected. I so admire your strong colours and lovely simple composition - what do you use - acrylic ?
Hi Dianne, yes I do intend to do some more workshops in Whangarei this year. I'm doing a couple in Queenstown next week and was waiting to see how I felt about those before I booked anything in after that. Perhaps if you give me a call in a few weeks you'll be able to prod me into action. I don't have any specific lessons yet on brushwork or the painterly effect, but I can give you some tips in a workshop. My short advice would be to do a smaller painting while emulating the style of a very painterly artist - use larger brushes, more paint, stand further back, keep stepping back from your painting, squint at your subject (not your painting) and paint what you see when you squint, use a palette knife, your fingers and rags, be daring, focus, and put on some Vivaldi.
Hopefully see you soon,
