100 days 100 paintings

20th February

After a visit to the pop up London Messina Wiltshire Gallery in Harrogate I was inspired to draw and use oil paint in my sketch book.

I came across artist Kurt Jackson at this gallery and was fascinated by his work on show there. I looked through a catalogue of his works also on display and looked him up on the great internet. I listened to a few interviews and read explanations about his work. I found the articles very interesting and inspiring. Especially how he works outdoors and his inspiration from Turner. I noticed in one of his interviews he showed his sketchbook. It looked like a miniature catalogue of his work in colour, this especially made me want to create a sketch book with colour.

I’ve always wanted to be an artist for some reason. What ever that means. Perhaps it means being paid to create art or creating art for yourself? I think it would make me happier to paint every day, to loose myself in the process of painting, drawing, making ! Only of course when I am enjoying it and it’s going well! 😇 I like beautiful things around me. I like colour, pattern and texture. I like history, I like to know what has happened in people’s lives, how they have coped with life and what they have done.
