Moving The Muse

Posted on February 20, 2014 at 12:14 4 Comments

Moving the muse.


What do you do when you feel like the muses have deserted you and your inspiration has left for parts unknown?


Someone wrote to me recently who was facing this problem. I’m not an expert, but it got me thinking about the subject.


What to do may depend a little…


Tips For The Colour Confused

Posted on October 7, 2013 at 21:30 0 Comments

Do you find colour confusing? Have you have ever reached for the yellow ochre and then realised you picked up orange instead?

Do you find it hard to decide exactly what a colour is? You are never sure if it is yellow green or khaki… green or brown?

Do you hear other artists talk about nuances of colour that you can’t even see, and wonder how they do…


Set the stage

Posted on August 8, 2013 at 21:57 0 Comments

Setting the stage and putting the hero on it is an approach to painting that works well for some subjects, but not for all. It is particularly suited for paintings where the main subject dominates the foreground as the background is established first and then the subject is added.


The above painting, a demonstration…


What's the difference between amateur and professional artists?

Posted on July 7, 2013 at 20:48 9 Comments

I have been following a discussion on Linked In about the diifference between amateur artists and professionals. I was surprised at how much heat the discussion produced. Thought I'd share my own ideas.

To describe an artist as a professional or as an amateur is not necessarily making a judgement about the quality of their art.


By definition, a professional is a person engaged in a specified activity as their main paid occupation, rather than as a pastime.…

Yes both were done from photos.  These 2 came out fairly good...I am not always pleased with.  It takes someone else to see.    Your comments are an inspiration.  Thanks, JD

Thank you for dropping in and viewing my work Roger. In the course of the past 4 years I learned that one understands and works with watercolor but never quite masters it :-)

I (naturally) bucked it starting out and was duly chastened. This piece was one where I got lucky. I've always liked drawing since grade school, it helps quite a bit when I revert to drawing with a brush :-)

I appreciate your comments all the more since you are an accomplished artist.  I'm duly impressed as well. Cheers

Hi Richard, So good to hear from you and thank you for your very kind comments.  You might recall that I visited you in South Australia a couple of years ago and had some painting lessons from you.  You were my best acrylic teacher and I have no doubt about that.  I look forward to traveling back to SA again when the opportunity arises and I will visit for some more lessons.  I truly haven't painted much in acrylics since then, focusing mostly on watercolours.  But the time has come again for acrylics and oils and I'm looking forward to the challenge.  Good to have you as a friend too.

Hi Richard, Thanks for accepting. The versatility is some times to my detriment, as it seams to my I am unable to excel in a specific direction. Resulting in being a bit of a "jack of all triads" and having difficulty in finding my niche.
