Picking up the brush again

I am looking forward to start doing art again. Life got in the way, and the last time I did any art was nearly 20 years ago.

My inspiration is the numerous very talented artists that picked up a brush later in their life. Such as Animal art by LAW doing incredible work with colour pencils.

A lovely article here discuss some of these dynamic people..those that picked up a brush after 60 and are now making waves in the art world !….. I still have time :)

Animal Art by LAW

I specifically loved sketching, ink, pencil and coloured pencils, and I did do some watercolors.

This time around I would like to explore watercolour a bit more and probably acrylic. The subjects that most attract me are flowers, animals and birds, as can be seen from all the artists I admire.

Watercolour can display lumenescent light like no other medium. Marney Ward is a master of creating light with watercolors.  I would love to try her flowers and light, maybe even do a series on Australian flowers.

Another inspiration is HUGE acrylic works such as the Australian gums of Simon Barlow  and the old english roses by Thomas Durnell!! I would very much like to work on such a large scale.

Watch this space…
