  1. I love the freedom and freshness of this image.

    I am starting to think about buying one of this series – this or Caesar perhaps. Once again I love the development.
    I have just come back from a dinner at a meeting in London. I spent some time talking about drawing to someone (another scientist) who draws a bit and who is thinking about doing more. I talked about how what I do has changed over the five years of sharing through blogging. And I also talked a bit about what I see of your artistic journey, how these sketches in three sharpie colours have been transformed into art in the studio. She was excited by the story. So it’s possible you may have inspired someone else.

    • My ears were burning, but I thought it was the virus I’ve got. To be honest, I feel like I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing or where I’m going, so I’m glad you can see a thread – you’ve called it a series, that sounds proper! Perhaps I don’t look back enough at what I’ve done. I’ve worn myself out these last few weeks. I wanted to be more colourful, now I’ve scared myself. Good you may have recruited another blogger! And thank you for your continued encouragement and faith.

        I don’t think it’s just me who has faith in you.
        Anyway, to put it in perspective, I had drunk a few glasses and found a point of contact with someone I didn’t know well but happened to be placed by me.
        As to the picture, it’s more that the colour, it’s the whole composition. I’d like to say what I see in it but commenting on the iPad means I can’t see the picture at the same time, so it’s hard to do. I think you have used simple blocks of colour, but the colours are well chosen. Then on top of this, there is your liney drawing. But really, when I opened this on reader, I went wow.

  3. Great energy and balance of colour and shapes.

    I love the swirl of colours and shapes contrasted with the little bird.

    I really respond to that top cropped image! Stunning. Then, I visually rotated the bottom portion of the second photo 180 degrees to the right, into portrait orientation. I hope you don’t mind my observation!

    Love this too – very bold and confident. Something pleasurably retro about those wedge shapes that makes me think of 60s/70s painters. Wouldn’t blink seeing this on a gallery wall! (I have no idea what’s going on in the brain of someone painting like this – my own approach feels so literal in comparison!)

    • I have no idea either and not sure if I could even create in this vein again! Not sure I like it and no idea what is going on. I am firmly from the ‘literal’ school it just sometimes doesn’t come out that way!
