I’m experiencing lots of firsts on Flora Bowley’s art course. The first ‘first’ is turning my kitchen into a makeshift art studio!
Here is one of my canvases conveniently situated next to the fridge (we artists must keep hydrated):
Bearing this in mind, I have been amazed to discover that, under Flora’s guidance, I am in the middle of painting two large canvases. And some bits even look quite nice, if a little chaotic:
I even bought a special pen. (This made me feel like a proper artist!):
On Friday I will be applying the 6th layer of paint to my canvases.
Flora warned our paintings would go through an awkward or “ugly” teenager phase.
She says this is all part of the process.
(OK… Keep the faith. Keep the faith. Keep the faith.)
