I wanted a way to see all my paintings and sketches in one place (rather than having to trawl back through individual posts), so I created a gallery. Click Gallery in the menu at the top of the site and you’ll find a page for paintings and a page for sketches. It’s quite encouraging seeing everything in one place.
Understandably, I’ve got a lot more sketches than paintings (they’re quicker and easier to produce), but I want to step up my painting this year. I have been working on a larger, more involved painting (the lamp one). I hope to be able to share that with you soon. 🙂
It seems obvious that we need to recapture the pleasure of creating things – not for profit, or for performative value – but for our own health and enjoyment. If ever there was a time that our nervous systems – individually and collectively – need soothing, it’s now.
I went outside last night and observed for a while and then came inside and did this. Not a very interesting composition with the moon smack in the middle, but I captured some of the lighting and colour effects that I wanted to. I’ll get organised soon and actually go outside with some paint (and a torch). 🙂
