On The Easel
As I work on each new painting I'll be posting pictures of it's progress and descriptions of the techniques I've learned, influences and inspiration.
I don't always have two canvas paintings on the go, the one on the left is a large canvas 30" x 24", physically I find it demanding so I do it in short bursts, as I'm addicted to painting I like to do something else in between, sometimes that's watching tutorials on YouTube or learning via an online course. Currently I'm doing the Abstractify course by Tara Lever of she's a great teacher and her courses are great, relaxed no rush and lots of help and support via a private Facebook group.
I do small intuitive pieces on paper which can be found on the Intuitive abstracts tab, when I paint I relax and pain and anxiety gets pushed to the back of my mind, I recommend art therapy to anyone, the craze in colouring books is a great place to start or just doodles that where I started.
This time I decided to start on another painting for my farm series, a Barn Owl painting I've never painted a bird before so it will keep me busy, I expect it will have a few coats of gesso along the way< and possibly become something else entirely but that's ok, it's fun never stressful.
