Well its feeling good to be able to add so many paintings that I completely forgot to upload this year. I'm feeling like I have achieved a lot during 2013. Before I was too afraid to even pick up a paint brush and just go for it, now its my life! With my first portrait painting I chose an image my Mum with a cat scratch across her nose. I'm so proud of it, it took me about a week during this summer holiday and I absolutely loved painting it. When going to bed I would miss painting and get up really early to start again, because I had this itchy feeling to get back to it. I then discovered a lot of people telling me I paint like an oil painter but with acrylic. So I decided what the hell, oil paint come at me! . . . At first It was a complete failure, I was trying to wash my brushes with water and tip turps down the drain... how I was so new to the medium. Ha ha, now I love it! Although I cant get the smell of white spirit out of my kitchen. Sometimes I even go to bed smelling of it. My first oil painting was great though, the hospital self-portrait; a second favourite. Every painting is becoming a challenge to me, I hate boring easy tasks, I really like make things hard for myself. Each canvas a internal struggle but always a success! I don't think they ever cant be, you can always paint over them. I swear my canvas' are getting bigger every time, soon I'll be up scaffolding. The only trouble is Mum says I take forever, and way to long. She says, I should do a bottom coat and then add the details in after. But oil is slow drying mother!
