Early works,

( And this here should be page 2 Entitled ‘Early works‘ : )

So with my new found hobby i had to find somethin to do with it, I have  no models to paint, well not yet anyway, so i go to the market and buy some fruit and veg. I do about 10 still lifes. This is one of them, possibly the better one of them, well certainly the most realist one, as after all i was trying to get used to the materials again after not using them for years so i was testing mark making techniques, perfecting proportions and getting creative with colours. Im using cheap acrylic paints with cheap brushes on thick but very cheap paper. I found this to be a very healthy way of painting, because i made a  nice big tasty pot of  ripe vegetable soup afterwards. yum

Now, i quickly got bored of painting veg, no not really, i could paint veg all day, someone once said that if you stare at a vegetable long enough you will become one, well i was one already so no worries there. But really i had to try more styles and exercise my imagination, this is one landscape that i came up with. Again, its not a great photo of my painting, but what i was trying to capture in the painting was the late afternoon autumn sun shining in at an angle through the dark woods. I enjoyed playing in the water and trying to make it feel alive, but i do beleived i failed . Oh well, by this stage i had about 15 or 20 paintings done over just a couple of weeks and was still feeling excited.

To see whats next go to page : more early works..

Quote of the day

Bourgeois society wants art to be another factor contributing to social alienation, we artists should transform it into a revolutionary weapon until the contradiction that actually exists between art and society finally comes to pass. This surpassing is called revolution and its motor and fundamental agent is the working class... — Quilapayún '69
