Modern and traditional paintings come in many styles, Realism,
Abstract and the pastel romantic Impressionism of Monet,
old masters and new such as Van Gogh and Picasso’s Cubism soon
catch the eye in The National Gallery when on display.
The drawing or painting media can vary from acrylic paint,
watercolour, charcoal, pencils and pigments mixed with oil,
stretching new white canvas over a wooden frame and priming
with gesso, then adding texture with gold leaf foil.
Planning the composition of a seascape, sketching the contour
lines in pencil after taking the easel and paints outside,
colour washing the background, then creating movement, detail and
colour with the evening sunlight tinting the receding tide.
A damp sable round tip brush picks up the colour from a water-
-colour base then requires cleaning in a water filled jar,
mixing the blocks of colours in shallow white pans, checking that
the perspective is correct, adjusting for near and far.
Sitting patiently upon hexagonal pieces of blonde wood honeycomb,
a three tone beautifully carved bumble bee,
talented sculptors past and present have left a wealth of aesthetic
sculptures and figures to revere, touch and see.
Using upcycled pieces of metal to fabricate a running brown wild hare
resulting in a stunning modern copper coloured design,
a high level of skill and an artist’s eye is required to sculpt a life sized
polished silver horse with flowing elegant lines.
Using a potter’s wheel to craft a rimmed rose bowl with a colourful
kiln fired glaze painted on the clay,
sculpting can form exceptional pieces of art and figurines from
base materials used every day.
Whether using clay, paint, metal, stone or fabric, the art of expression
and creating which you loved so dear,
viewing artwork at home, an exhibition at a national museum or local
gallery, brings you ever closer, brings you ever near.
A poem can express innermost emotions after the loss of a loved one or friend.
My poetry is written to be gently uplifting and evocative, reminding the reader or listeners of the loved one or friend’s love of creating art.
My poems have been very well received at both church and crematorium services, by funeral directors and add a very personal accolade.
