The main thing I blog about and one the focus of my interests is museums exhibitions and reviewing the same. This tedious virus caused isolation means that is no longer possible. I find, along with many people that this absence of stimulation causes me to be less productive and creative not more. Time weighs heavily on me and motivation is difficult to summon, especially as my usual studio space is currently miles away and forbidden to me.
So instead I have been experimenting with pen and watercolour. Making abstract shapes, or geometric patterns and experimenting with combinations of colours.
My traditional stance is to use a variety of colours, often not having the same colour next to itself (such as in the above left).
I soon tired of this though and branched out into using colours of the same base or a similar hue, green in the above left, brown (strictly speaking madder) in the above right.
I have been posting these up, every day, on my instagram page. I intend to continue doing so until the lockdown ends. I am not sure what will happen then. Maybe I will try exhibiting them (or the best of them). In the meantime I hope you enjoy them.
I am an artist with a specialism in landscapes and still life. My contact details are here.
