Girls own fissure ..       Watercolour  and Pastel  

 

ALL IMAGES ARE FREE TO COPY WITHOUT RESTRICTIONS

 

 

Having spent most of my life as a Framer it has become clear to me that works on paper have no chance unless they are  pressed,  framed or mounted .They are usually the sketches and abstracted that need it most ..people comment that my work looks better on here than the real thing ..and Its true... but framed they become cleaned up  and edged .and then possible to also hang ..then they are looked at ..That's why we paint them, to be seen .

Its unfortunate that the majority don't own originals and rely on these  digital reproductions with bad colour rendition or poorly copied prints ..my hurried attempts at photographing my paintings result in them looking completely unlike the original at times . I use a compact digital most of the time and it doesn't pick up the white paper colour very well, hence the grey backgrounds and lack of contrast in the reproductions , there is no substitute for an original .

You may find my work a bit odd..when at art school I painted a traditional painting . the teacher said

 'if you paint like that you will be the same as everyone else , is that what you want?'

he was right so I looked sideways and behind me.
