Decided to do some painting last night. Quite enjoyed it but I definitely feel like I should be working bigger than this.

I love oil paint, I love the texture, the way it looks, the way it can be worked into. I should really make sure I keep up painting so that I can improve.


  1. Hi Laura,

    It's interesting how you cropped

    the image, I would have liked

    to have seen more flesh :-)

    I love the work of Jenny Saville and Lucien Freud.

    If I were to paint, I would follow classical

    nude studies too.

    Finding a subject/theme is a good way to be

    able to judge how you develop a signature style.

    It's also far more fun than sitting in front of

    a screen messing about with photoshop.



  2. Thanks Mark. I love Jenny Saville and Lucien Freud too.

    Thanks for mentioning the cropping, I think that is definitely something I didn't think much about and will have to think about.
