For almost 2 weeks I have been buried in a Bachelor of Appiled Arts…I can’t believe how much I love it!!!
I have drawn in ways I had never thought about…I am painting with Acrylics…I always thought that Acrylics were for sissy’s…I was wrong.
I am studying a painter called Mustafa Farroukh…what yummy work…I am trying to paint similar paintings…the hardest thing is that he painted with Oils but on this course we are not allowed to use Oils and I have been trying to capture the essence of his work in Acrylics…I can’t tell you how much I hated it…Acrylics dry so fast!!! However, I am coming to grips with my new medium and am able to put togther a reasonable response…would still make Mr Farroukh turn in his grave…but I have a few more weeks to improve.
Part of my course is producing 4 pieces of work for sale…so keep an eye out, over the next couple of months I will be posting those master pieces here…for your enjoyment.
I have also painted my weirdest painting todate…ever!!! I created it in response to Siapo artist Mary Jewett Pritchard. Enjoy…..It is called…”Working Late Into The Night”
I miss my computer…I have no access during the day…I am a computer junkie with severe withdrawl issues…lol.
