As I’ve mentioned, I’m a dedicated part-time painter. From childhood I’ve loved art, first as an avid museum –goer to a progression from pencil sketching, water colours, & now painting in oils.
Although I’m largely self-taught, in the past few years I’ve taken some lessons from a handful of artists I’ve admired, each for different reasons. All recommended that I copy a couple of paintings by one or two of my favourite artists, the object being to deepen my understanding of their techniques & choice of subject matter.
I’m posting here the first of my copies, a Matisse that I painted about five years ago. For this I used acrylics on canvas (37"x37")
I’m really interested in your comments, as I’m a firm believer in the concept that no art, from painting to writing, music to acting exists in a vacuum, that all art is meant to be a shared experience.
So, please I look forward to some honest feedback either here or on my facebook page.
Subsequently, in a short while I would like to post a couple of my original works.
So, in anticipation of hearing from you, all my best wishes, & please be kind to the animals.
