This blog is moving!
At last I have discovered a way to have my website and blog all in one place.
So from now on all new blog posts will be on my new website.
I'm still writing about the same sort of things, and you can still find the old posts on this page.

Start of a Painting. Is This The One?

Mary Kemp - Tea in the Sun
Ken Howard says that he starts each painting session full of hope and finishes the day in despair.
I don't know why he feels this. Perhaps he's forgotten how good he is.
I, on the other hand , know why I feel that way, but I am starting another painting today so am full of hope and will not share the despair when it doesn't turn out as I imagined.
I have just started placing the various components using a light wash of acrylic on a canvas panel. There's a bit of tone too. Just to give me an idea. Perhaps I should stop at this stage. I'm quite pleased with it so far !!!!
Hope springs eternal.
