For a few months now I’ve continued to revisit painting with acrylics – with many a muddy mess along the way – and I’m still mainly pursuing landscapes in a tonalist style.
I’m at the point of painting gesso over many of them so I can reuse the canvases for further practice. Some that I’m sharing here may be kept to see another day…
As is often the case, after lots more painting, drawing and “hopefully” learning you look back, and “eek!” you can see that many are not “masterpieces”😉after all.
Towards the end of last year I have moved most of my art materials into my new art room/studio. A pretty exciting event. It’s a lovely space that we’ve built onto our land right next door to where we live. It also doubles as a guest room when/if needed – so there is a kitchenette and bathroom as well.
I’m a fairly tidy artist, so there’s no major rearranging to do if we have family or friends stay. There’s a photo from in there below; I’ll share more of it in another post. My home is still set up with art spaces to work in as well…feeling rather spoilt and thankful†!
I had the oil paints out for tiny bit – lovely lush feel and colours, but so slow to dry! Will try them again – eventually.
The next painting is inspired by a view of paddocks just across the road from my art studio.(Been calling it an art room, but studio sounds rather nice!) Not so much a tonal style, more a series of patterns….in many ways composition is like creating interesting patterns.
Thanks for visiting here, and I hope you have a lovely day!
