Good Day,

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(mabawuah11@aol.com  ) for the full details,
Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mrs Abiola.

Hi Diane, I was hoping to do some painting while in Northland at Easter......we that really didn't happen.

We enjoyed a chat with Richard at Ruakaka...unfortunately time and weather were against us this trip.

I did go to Rayburn house to see artists at work there and the Whangarei heads Art Trail....that was fantastic, so many talented folk out there !

I took many reference photos...including a sneaky one of Richards fav spot Waipu !!

it was overcast on way to Auckland for flight home ....but gives me a ref for painting.

Perhaps next time I get back I will see your work ....I really must find some time and start " Ruakaka workshop " !!

Interesting that your friend that drew "Pomegranates" is related to my Brother in law in Mangapai ....small world eh.

Happy painting

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 I really look forward to having enough hours also and more hours to paint - I hope you find illusions and enjoy it. Jeni

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,
