Size and how to do red texture painting

The red textured painting, the size is 12 ins x 16 If you do one you need to wait about 3 days or more to dry each layer, so it takes a while to do. Its good to do if your painting another picture so then you can keep layering it while your doing the other one. If you decide to do mixed colours in it you will need to wait longer otherwise it might mix and you would end up with mud. Acrylic paint l find when drying often leaves a small bit thats soft so watch out for this.

Texured Painting

This painting has lots of texture due to lots of layers of paint, l am not sure if l want to do another. It would be better to do one with lots of texture in different colours rather than just red. But it was different to do.

Another Naive Painting


New Naive Painting

I have just finished my new  Naive painting. Its paintined in artists acrylic paints over two coats of artists gesso and finished with a coat of artists varnish to protect it.
I loved this one as in my head l was living by the sea and  loving it. There is a few extra's in it if you look close.
I changed the bottom a few times, had a boat selling fresh prawns but then decided on cream teas but that changed. I just love weaving the story and having nice people living near, everyone helps each here.
I had a bad fall last week and it took ages to get up and it was in the daytime. If l had not managed to get up l would have been there till the next day maybe longer. Our neighbours are made to look terrible to us by the media, we here how people are attacked so  we don't keep our doors open and no one has a key. I woner if we will get our confidence back in our friends. Now company has to be invited. No wonder people are writing and painting nice people and  a nice world.


Change of Art


New Style of Art for me.

I never thought l would ever change my style of panting, so it was such a shock looking at some paintings at a gallery and falling in love with them. It was the style called 'Naive' and to me it was painting in a loose childish way but not easy as with so much small detail you have to draw out a plan which l have never done. I love it and can't wait each day to start and that's how art should be, just waiting for the next story to start. I also love it when my two grand children ask if they could be in the next one and l haven't to tell them were as they want to search themselves and l could hear them stood there talking to each other about the painting. With my abstract painting l never got a word out of them ever and they just walked past it and now l have two people already that like it. But later the little one Francheco asked how much would one cost as she said 'l get pocket money now 'so how would the same size cost. So l said what about having two smaller ones done to put up on your wall and you can pick who you want on them. After a lot of whispering they decided on Fifi that's on TV. After they went l had to google Fifi and find Fifi but painted two. They were both happy and now are thinking what sort they could have for there birthday. I am going to download some of my new naive paintings l have done and would love your opinion on them. Also do you say Naive in the way you would say 'she is very naive (ni-eve ) or is it said like nave. Have been puzzling over this for weeks. My next painting is going to be a Nanie or Granny hotel, have had the idea a long while so am hoping it works out. Look out for the fun bits on them to. It isn't easy painting as there is so much detail to do and space is hard to find but that's half the fun.. Hope you all have a good weekend.
