In the Mountains

As I am in a mountain mood I thought I would start with a quick sketch useing Corel painter 2 as a experiment. This digital tool seems to produce interesting effects and is fairiy straightforward to use.
A artist worth investigating is Ernest Ludwig Kirchner,his use of colour is quite vibrant
N.B The link did not quite work out on this one so just click in type Kirchner in search.
I will be returning to the subject of mountains in a future blog.

Norway in a Nutshall!

This is sketch was done during a Coach holday to Norway. A country well worth a vist. The National Gallery in Oslo was quite a find and has a few ‘Norwegian impresionistc paintings’ which were interesting to see.
