Warm ups

Working away from Home and Setting up a small workspace in Richmond outside in the emergency exit/bin area. Every space can be useful ! Im working on small scale at the moment to get my ideas down. I started Using acrylics because I have a small space and there is nowhere safe to leave my paintings to dry, but didn’t gave black so went back to using oils!! That idea of using acrylics didn’t last long!! But I might use both on the same painting. I find it difficult restricting myself and starting with light colours. I thought I read somewhere to start with light colours and work darker. But I find that so restrictive and want to just get on with the dark colours! Once before I gave associated painting with cooking and baking and I think it might be like wanting to decorate the cake before I have put it in the oven !!!!

Sketch and start of painting of my view in Richmond Upon Thames with inspiration from the interior floor in the flat

Tile I bought that reminded me of the floor in the flat. Love the colours and will use this as inspiration to add to my view.

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.
