Colouring In

19 Mar

detail

I rarely paint, it’s not a medium I feel much affinity with but I’ve been working on a painting the past couple of days, it’s for someone special. The reason I don’t paint much is because I feel that all my creativity goes into drawing and once I’ve got the drawing as I want it, painting just seems like colouring in, which is quite nice but nowhere near as creative, in my opinion, as drawing. Although I know a lot of painters who wouldn”t agree with me on this.

I’m using acrylic paints, thinned with water, to paint translucent layers of pigment onto a white primed canvas. This is a small detail of the painting in progress.

    I agree, which is why I don’t sketch when I paint, making the process more haphazard, and impossible to control.

      That sounds much more creative

        Well I don’t have your drawing skills, so have to solve it the way I can:)

    I work the same way. Draw it first, then it’s like a coloring book we had as kids.

    This really struck me Rosie…I can see what you mean…I think…but I’ve never approached painting in that way..I think it’s all about moving one thing against another thing..paint or line..so metaphor, I guess…and hoping a third thing emerges that is greater than the sum of it’s parts…x

    I love how you paint Rosie, gorgeous colour too. I’m craving colour at the moment, it might be the weather, but this is like a blast of sunshine 😊

      On the rare occasions when I get the paint out, I go a bit mad with colour because I tend to be very monochromatic with my printmaking and drawings
