Relearning An Old Skill [Mar. 31st, 2016|11:42 am]
Tony Grist
That dream I had a few nights back has spurred me into taking up water colour painting again. I bought materials in Bexhill on Tuesday and yesterday afternoon I spread them out on the dining room table and had a go. It must be twenty years since I last tried to paint and I'm going to have relearn whatever skills I had. My first attempt looks like Blake and water- lots of water and maybe a couple of ice cubes as well. No, I'm not going to show and tell. Maybe later- when I've produced something I'm happy with.

That is brilliant. Rediscovering old passions can be fun!

It's a daunting moment- looking at a blank sheet and deciding where to put the first mark.

This may be why I don't draw/sketch/paint. :-)

Art runs in my family. My grandmother was a wood carver, her brother was a painter, my mother used to dabble and my sister is a painter and photographer.

A bit scary too.

I think it's pretty cool that a dream motivated you to renew an old passion. Go you!

Thanks.

I've got a list of subjects for paintings. Now I've got to figure out how to do them.

I'm just waiting to unpack in Sweden and then I too will be trying to pick up nearly forgotten skills with oils and acrylics.

I feel like there's a mountain to climb and I'm standing at the bottom, looking up...
