Some more recent images from the paintseptember Twitter project. Of course, I’d be making these anyway. I gave them various titles but I’ll spare you them. I employed my usual materials – ink, filler, acrylic. The last one, however, is Crayola flip-top markers borrowed from the kids – a nice effect when mixed with water. Could have potential as a landscape sketch tool.
As much as I am enjoying these easy days of housework, school runs and occasional creating I am looking forward to art college. Two weeks today I start in earnest. Excitement, nerves and all the usual are running through me. It’s not like I’m a kid fresh from school any more but there is that anticipation of a new challenge.
As I’m writing this I’ve got a documentary about John Bellany. I just burst out laughing – when he was my age he had a major retrospective exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Ever felt like a underachieve?!
