It's not technically colour, and I am cheating even before I have got started. It's one last scan from that sketch book with the colourful pages. And bright red is a colour. A very good christmassy colour to boot.
Just have no time to play with my paints or anything over the last few Family filled days.
Found 2 pens yesterday. A red one outside the British Library. And a black one on the Tube on the way to Shepherds Bush.
Later, when I was trying them out, to see it they still worked, and were truly lost, as opposed to just thrown away, a girl stopped in front of me wearing a red and black shawl. The perfect opportunity.
She was with a gang of friends, who were all larking about, but she remained aloof from their foolery.
Just read a challenge to list 15 artists who inspire you and keep you moving towards that goal.
I didn't need any time at all to come up with my list. Putting it here for want of anything else to do with it. Sorry, had to be done.
Always top of any list like this -
John Singer Sargent
John Sell Cotman
Richard Parkes Bonington
George Baselitz ( recent addition )
Who ever I see next.
