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.
Well that was what it seemed like this morning.
I spent a happy hour in Hobbycrafts new superstore that opend in Havant.A bit overwhelming at first,if you can not find it there then you will not find it anywhere!
High in the hills, north of Tuscany there are ancient villages and old beech trees, in one of these villages there was a old monastry that was neglacted for many years until disvoverd by David Westby and Leon Whiton where with, combind energy and vision, converted it into a Artist retreat. They whent on and did the same thing in Puglia, on the heal of Italy, where they were featured on Grand Designs building a Arch.
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.
