What have I been up to?
Why the silence!!!
Well I had a Macular Hole in my right eye retina; which was operated on, on the 3rd December. (if you’re wondering what it is like having a hole in your vision take a look at a Frances Bacon painting!)
It has been some time since my last post as my vision has been very poor and not only have I been unable to Blog I have not been able to work or drive. In fact in the first week after the op I had to sit with my head down. The first two days nearly drove me nuts! until I got out my sketch books
I then spent my time doodling
I had to get real close to my work and even then I could barely see what I was doing.
Some of the doodles
sorry they are a bit out of focus….
I don’t think anything worth working on came from the doodling; however I have had lots of time to reflect on what I want to do regarding my work, in 2016. And hope to be back in the studio next week; as this week I have started driving locally again. The really good thing is I am raring to go, not bad for me at this time of year!
I am pondering on Oils v Acrylics
I do love working in oils but they are not as convenient as acrylic.
Pros and cons of Oils v Acrylics! This could go on all day so I think I will just have to get my oil paints out and go for it; I can always switch back. However…. this is a bit of a poser your views on the pros and cons of both would be very welcome
