Night classes!

I’ve been drawing and painting for nearly nine months now, and I feel like I’m ready to take the next step and do some night classes. So, I’ve booked into the Browne School of Art ‘Beginning to Draw and Paint‘ class that starts in February. So excited—and nervous.

José Parlá

A while back, I went to a local library to get out some art books, and this one caught my eye. When I got home and opened it, I was blown away. Probably not the kind of art I want to create, but I love it. And it was beautifully presented in the hardcover book.

Here’s a short video on José to give you an idea of what he does. I love how he sometimes jumps off his ladder to make a mark. 🙂

Vincent's stars

Vincent's stars

I wasn’t sure whether I liked Van Gogh’s paintings to begin with, but the more I’ve studied them, and the more I learn about him, the more I do. In fact, I love them now.

I thought I’d have a go at a section of The Starry Night to see whether I could replicate the style/brushstrokes, and I really enjoyed it. I might do a copy of the full painting at a later stage.
