Blue

Some of my friends , especially Karen Hatcher in Washington, simply love the colour Blue. I know she does, since she bought two of my paintings based on Blue. I think she likes the freshness of the colour, and the hope it brings in all of us. It is a colour of freedom as we soak up the sun around it. To all those who cherish blue. There is also a dimension of Flow to Blue be it still or rapid. This applies to to the style of painting as well. See my paintings on another page in the website to see what I mean. Keep loose!

 

Watercolour Studies

As an artist one is always driven to improve ones technique.

Even though you might not always feel like having the time, it is vital to practice and paint as much as you can to improve your skills.

I have recently done some studies on shadows and light, trying to improve my own techniques. Below are two examples:

The top painting is my version from an original watercolour by Alvaro Castagnet and bottom is my take of a painting by Joseph Zbukvic.

In painting, like everything else in life, you never stop learning!
