For those of you who have hung about on this 'Journey' of mine from Linocut to Gelli plates then onwards to acrylics and now...yes almost there, using Oil Sticks and next up is Oil paint and Cold Wax...the end of the learning exercise..... and thanks for sticking with me on this.
There has been some terrible Bin Fodder produced along the way but they do or did make excellent fire starters. So these 2 are on 60 x 40cm canvas boards, I'm looking at panels to work on next, there is some collage work underneath and I've used Gesso to add texture to the surface. Newest problem I've found is the drying time of the Oil Sticks...anyway. I've spent hours on the University of Youtube looking and learning and would like to thanks all those folk who have used there time to put together such a huge volume of learning resources, I've hardly had anytime to watch any Cat videos. So at this point I know the style of image I want to produce, the materials I need to do that and the time to put it into being. Well there appears to be some sort of lockdown going on, here up in the hills of Scotland it's just another day... So I did promise photography next and I have put a small group of images together so ….next up...Photography !!!!. Thanks for calling by.
Sorry the image above is 'Apero'..had some great ones in France, a short burst of socialising at the end of the day...time limited, but alcohol and snacks.
Down below is 'Diner pour Un' which if I remember from my Breton days is against the Law and you were welcomed into any household for a proper meal.
In these dark times let this be your fireside cup of cocoa with added digestive biscuits. It may skirt the edges of real art but I'll get there but who knows when???? Art from the edge of the Galloway Forest in downtown Ayrshire.
