I have several projects on the go this morning. All in my sketchbooks.

No 1

I have a sketchbook for landscape experiments of which I have done another painting this morning of Washburn Valley near Harrogate with gouache and black ink.

No 2

I also have a sketchbook that I started at the beginning of last year whilst on holiday in the Bahamas in January using inspiration whilst on holiday from David Hockney. There were no more holidays last year because of lockdown so I am using wallpaper and collage this morning to help reminisce and experiment with pattern and cut outs for some mono printing I’m hoping to achieve later on.


My third sketchbook is for experimenting with portraits and again this morning I have done a little organising and found an old calendar of paintings of women reading so I’m going to make a start on sketching some of them.

If that is not enough for today I have some portrait stickers by Picasso that I would also like to use as inspiration.

I have a lot to do today.

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.
