    For Christmas my husband got me a watercolour set. I haven't painted since I left school 17 years ago.

    First attempt today. I'm not over the moon cos I really effed up the riverbank.

    Definitely more to come. 20170106_150202.jpg 20170101_150750.jpg

    Ha ha! Excellent start to the thread this year. Humour aside.. That's a great watercolour. Would happily have something like that on my wall. Look forward to seeing how you get on over the year with a start like that.

    Seeing the thread start this year made me determined to do more art this year. Have kicked it off with a sketch of young Moe

    Heyyo guys

    First post ever after lurking for a few months.
    First image is tall benjamin as seen through photoshop sliders, and the second one is an illustration of a Romanian traditional mask.

    I want to see more art! Especially if you're from Brixton. Thank you :)))

    I painted an ex, and sent her the pic. She thinks I hate her! I didn't think the painting was that bad, and it does look like her!

    A very quick and rough charcoal sketch of a wels catfish. I wasn't at all happy with it when i did it but its growing on me. There's too many little bits wrong with it though so I'll likely try to develop the idea further and do another

    I've been working on the catfish. I realised it needed to be S shaped for one and have just been refining the line drawing ready to shade with charcoal. Having said that, i may get some pencils and so it with those. Don't seem to have any soft pencils at the moment. Decision to be made! Pencil or charcoal?

    One of my early wels sketches has been reworked to a carp. Im thinking of the project turning into a pair of drawings in the same style and medium.

    Thanks.. Actually.. That is useful feedback, maybe that's the style and medium to use? Plain line pencil drawing

    A friend suggested trying some more abstract stuff. Not sure im really inclined that way but i tried something along the lines of what she was getting at and drew this

    And I've got a bit of a back spasm going on at the moment not helped by bad sleep/bad sleep posture :D

    Yes, what i thought. I find it hard to be completely abstract. Escher is the boss. Love his work. I also love Kandinsky, think i saw quite a bit years ago in Germany but my memory is shit!

    I've been trying to develop an idea for a comic. A psychotic budgie, which may yet be a parrot, that speaks commands to an equally deranged dog as they try to bump off their owner for plot reasons not yet decided.

    Rough ideas have been put to paper

    abstract is all about simplifying shapes, if you have netflix theres a series called 'Abstract: the art of design', the first episode of that is all about this german illustrator, he talks a lot about abstract as a concept

    I am abandoning the 'Travel' forum and moving to 'Art'. This is therefore my first effort for 2017 in it's rightful 'Art' forum place. Explanations are still in travel, but I think it is time that thread died and I go back to my blog. TheLostPhotographer.blogspot.com Quiet presently, but will reignite.
