First Aid. The second of numerous phone photos I took in the window at home last night. It often takes many attempts to get a capture that I am pleased with, especially when I want a profile of myself. I have to guess what angle to put my head and where to hold my phone, which results in loads of rubbish shots, but sometimes it works and I manage to get what I want. Also because I am never actually looking at my phone camera when creating the image, it is all guess work, and consequently I sometimes get interesting surprises of shapes and tones that I wouldn't have thought of. Who else does this kind of thing? - taking photo's without looking at what they are doing? Please send me links. This photo shows me inside my house, outside in our back yard, and also over the wall to houses beyond - see their chimney pots top right.
🤦♂️🤷♂️. Cheers to big bro’s bday, bro. You took after him when it came to power bombing me off dressers 😭. But luckily I think his poetic side rubbed off on me more and I can’t say that I’m mad 🤓. Happy birthday Lee. You may not know this, but you’ve definitely played a big role in shaping the person I am today. Miss ya
Why do we love what we love? 💙 Lately, I've seen a lot of posts about favourite artworks. It got me thinking which of my artworks fall into this category 🤔 I was puzzled. I enjoy looking at (and let's be honest showing ☺️) most of my art. Does it mean that I feel the same about all of my works? Of course not. Some of them are special to me, but it's not the artwork itself that makes it special, but something it stands for. For example, this vividly coloured boat and its reflection. I enjoy it because it shows me tackling the difficult task of painting water with subtle tints and depicting its fluidity. On top of that, I had a complicated reflection to paint. So it's not about this particular boat or colour choice, though I love the later, it's about self-improvement and daring. I dared to take this challenging reference and recreate it my way. It's a small but important for me success story 🌟 We are attracted to stories. They help us make sense of this world and to relate to others. Every great work of art has a remarkable story behind it. Would we feel the same about them without those stories? I don't think so. Stories help us to connect with art, to see beyond the surface and go deeper inside artist's thoughts. The Mona Lisa would be less mysterious and entrancing if we didn't know that Leonardo da Vinci had carried it with him for many years. Claude Monet garden paintings would lose a part of their charm if we didn't know that it'd been the garden he'd planned and grown himself. At least this fact makes me love his paintings even more 😍 What is the story that makes you love your own or a world-known work of art? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #copics#copicart#markers#copicmarkers#sketch#sketching#sketchzone#markersketch#best_of_illustrations #moreillustrations#illustration_best #illustrationartists#illustration#artwork#markerart#markersart#markerartist#markerartwork#artistblog#artistlife#markerpainting
