Beginner’s art: an exciting journey!
I’ll keep readers updated with my development in the arts this year.
Background: I began developing my fine art skills last year with surprising results.
I hope to illustrate one of my children’s picture books,
but creating my own illustrations to inspire young readers is a major journey of development.
In the past, I have researched illustrations in photo libraries and leased such illustrations,
which enhance texts like my Hello China series.
Already I have made a few attempts at art illustrations–but they are not nearly impressive enough.
I may give up. Art is a struggle to say the least after all these years of precious writing!
Above, I have featured my first oil painting. I quite like the blue bay based on a photo from a magazine
though you may probably guess, I popped in the orange yachts.
Recently I noticed a similar gigantic work of esteemed art in a regional gallery, reflecting a similar theme
–but it was sensational with a floral foreground! Seascapes are utterly charming in the hands of an artist!
Feel free to share your journeys in the artistic realm.
