30. September

I have been thinking about how to make my painting more interesting and about style and composition. I read a book by the watercolour artist Hazel Sloane who said you should use a subject to create a painting and not just copy what is in front of you. I used a photo of guitarist friend Steve and interpreted it rather than producing a straight copy. I am not disappointed with the result although I am not sure he will recognise himself. However I have also read that likeness in a portrait is not important so that’s ok then!
