There won't be a blog post for November if I don't pull my finger out soon, so - er, Hallo! I've had a bit of time off while my pain-killers (killers! Ha...!) were adjusted; and I see that my poor blogspot is free of advertising - suggesting that no one is reading it - and that I still have only 16 followers, one of whom has, sadly, passed away.
It's not encouraging, is it?
Still - I know that people DO visit, because they tend to comment elsewhere - eg, on Facebook. So I shall persist, in spite of indifference: I don't care if you don't care, so yah, boo...... Except I do, of course.
Anyway - while I've not been entirely inactive, it's been hard to take photos of recent paintings because they were on watercolour paper: too dark in the Batcave to get a decent shot, impossible to take a pic outside because the wind would have blown them away or the perishing rain would have destroyed them. I'll post a couple - BAD photographs, I fear, but then at least no one will be tempted to steal them, as they sometimes do (not you, gentle reader: just the odd rat-fink from China).
Now, how about buying an e-book on Oil Painting Basics for Christmas? Present it to your budding artists - you've heard this Spiel before, but it's always worth a punt. Oil Paint Basics, by Robert Phillip Jones, Amazon Kindle Store. Go on, you know you want to. You do. No, you do. Do.
I did SAY they were bad photos: I'll tickle 'em up a bit in a day or three. Both watercolours, on Bockingford. If you're interested in purchase and want a better scan, just email me or comment.
