I would say the tricky bit with art in the form of pictures is the initial drawing, or if you paint straight onto the blank paper or canvas without first drawing the picture you are going to paint.
You can of course trace or copy a photograph, you can also use a pencil and rubber and keep rubbing out the bits that come out wrong.
I don’t get a lot of time to draw and paint so it tends to mostly be watercolour paint or ink straight on to cheap paper, this is an irreversible process.
This was the lunchtime one from caffé LATTE, everything done in my lunch hour, walking there from my shop, eating the sandwich drawing the picture and getting back to work inside the hour. Mainly the buildings in the foreground got a bit too tall and thin.
A note about drawing people here, all their heads are at roughly the same height and the get shorter from the bottom up as they get further away.
Next some thought on this blog, once again the comment is becoming a pain in neck, this is entirely due to contributors who can’t seem to manage to debate issues in an adult way. If you want to know what I mean take a look at http://thanetonline.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/save-manston-airport-group-hand-in.html?showComment=1406145549960#c1915794687293351911
Most of this goes something like.
Rom. “Jul is an idiot”
Jul. “Rom is an idiot”
Rom “Jul is stupid”
Jul “Rom is absolutely bonkers”
Rom “Jul is absolutely bonkers”
Rom “Michael, Jul is calling me names, why haven’t you deleted Jul’s comments”
Michael “Read the comment guidelines below, email me the offending comment’s timestamp and web page address”
Then follows all the nonsense about reporting this blog to google, the only reporting facility google has is to get offensive blogs closed down, well I wish them the joy of that particular road.
This blog has around 50,000 comments on it and I would guess a few hundred have offended someone or another and they have reported the blog to google.
