WORK IN PROGRESS...HEADSTUDY...ACRYLIC
I'm getting annoyed with how long it's taking to get this done. Yesterday I had to do an errand which took longer than usual and by the time I had finished I had to get on with the mundane tasks of housekeeping.....when I become rich and famous I'm getting a housekeeper.....I can but dream but I'll settle for a bit rich. This afternoon I have a dentist appointment which means I'll have to stop again. Off course this isn't the only one I'm working on in between the mini cows and landscapes....just feel like a moan. Picked up a copy of Artists & Illustrators yesterday because it had a feature on painting horses, a rare thing in an art magazine...actually quite a good magazine if you can get your hands on one. Jacqueline Stanhope an artist whose work I enjoy is one of the equestrian artists featured.......I loved one of her top tips "Painting a picture is not open-heart surgery but I regularly meet people who are frightened of 'failure'. Loosen up and have some fun!"
