So, I’ve decided to try my hand at something new.
Generally speaking I’ve laways been more at home with pencils or pen and ink, confident in definite lines and penstrokes. I like working in black and white, like spending time slowly cross-hatching or filling in tiny black lines that eventually coalesce into deeper, darker shadows. I draw cartoons mostly, mostly monsters.
But I fancy a change – it’s as good as a rest after all – and I have started painting. Acrylic on Canvas. And it’s fun! Swathes of colour, layer on layer, building texture – it’s completely different to how I usually work and I’m definitely enjoying the novelty.
So here is the first fruits of my labour, a stormy seascape. I’d love to see what anyone thinks so please let me know!
