I have gone back to painting. I painted quite seriously for the first part of my life then discovered bookbinding.
This meant I had to study bookbinding to become proficient in this demanding and fascinating activity. This took several years and then I was busy honing my skills and enjoying teaching it.
However, there was always the lurking desire to get back to painting some time. I have a lovely painter neighbour and with her prodding I have set up my studio and try to get a session of painting done each day. Life is good when I can paint in the mornings and bookbind in the afternoons.
I share with you some of my watercolours – the medium I have enjoyed working in for a long time. My inspiration is generally nature – with some geometric shapes creeping in. I do not control the images too much, let them develop as I respond spontaneously – if the geometric shapes appear so be it – what they mean I am not sure. Perhaps my desire to link man with nature.
Hope you enjoy this new blog inclusion.
