Large original signed landscape.   Details and price of this large, original and signed artwork are available on request.   It is an autumnal view of a nearby town, with its unique church spire and the group of village houses nestling in the surrounding landscape.

One discipline that many artists lack is that of keeping their materials and equipment in good order, easy to find and disposed of when no longer required.   The reason I say this is that recently,  I was asked to dispose of the contents of a deceased artist and was quite amazed at the amount of totally unusable “stuff” he had accumulated over the years.

Considering this man was a  competant watercolourist who worked in a very limited palette and on only one brand and size of watercolour paper, the huge amount of extraneous art brushes, pencils, pens, crayons, charcoal, acrylics and oils plus assorted thinners, etc., plus canvas and board that he had and would never use, was quite extraordinary.       So why not like me, make an inventory of what you actually use and want, bin the rubbish and give what you don’t and won’t need to those who can make good use of it?BretonAutumn (4).jpg

Whenever you see an Artist at work, you will note how wrapped up he or she is, in their work.   I think this is because the very act of drawing or painting is hugely theraputic and it can enable you to pour out your soul onto a piece of paper, board or canvas.

The demands of creating an artwork are both intensive and satisfactory ‘though the Artist may have to dig very deep in order to release their creativity and produce an artwork that is pleasing to them and to the viewer.

Drawing and painting are personal – very noticeable when one views the pencil, etc., choice and the colour palette of individual artists.     Outgoing people tend to use lots of dramatic shading in their illustrations and equally lots of yellow, orange, rust and red in their paintings.  More reserved personalities tend to draw simple  outline sketches and go for muted greens, soft blue/greys and brown colours.

Artists tend to enjoy themselves when working and this in itself is a truly healing action.   Of course, we  throw  away work that doesn’t please us , but that actually increases the feeling of well-being, when we produce an artwork with which we are truly satisfied.

An artwork can be as simple or as complex as you require it to be, and if you lose yourself in its’ production, then the healing magic of Art has done you a great favour.reeds & rushes. (2)

The example that I have shown here was painted on cardboard (primed with 3 coats white mat ) and then painted in ordinary emulsion to create the artwork.
