This was a experiment on a hexegonal shape, I am not sure about my style. there seems to be a bit of everything in it but it seems to talk about other dimensions maybe wormholes one thing leading to another.
Sorry that the whole image is not on I will take a photograph later but wanted to put this in the blog.
At the moment I am very much feeling my way with the blog writing things that may interest a wider audience or may not.
What I propose is a continuation of Constable research and maybe a look at some dutch painting along the way, There is a strong connection, I feel between Suffolk skies and Dutch skies both are sources of light and important focal points in paintings of Constables time and before.
I will continue to post images that I create because they are important to me .
I want to continue to expand my personal knowledge of other Artists and themes in art.
Of course as with any plan there will be changes
Further research of summer project for uni (2nd year) Westminster to Tower Bridge.
Further objectives :
Monet paintings(his London ones)
(The colour will change once a link has been established at present no link here for artists named)
Interview planned for blog.
Review of exhibition at Pallant House gallery, Chichester
These photo were taken near my home last Friday morning at abot 11.30. The clouds were building up nicely and there were obviously some heavy showers nearby. As part of my Constable research i wanted to take a closer look at some of the things he did with clouds.
it appears that he did variouse sky studies and he called them ‘skying’ as he wrote in on 23October 1821,he believed that
the sky was one of the mhttp://www.nga.gov.au/Exhibition/CONSTABLE/Default.cfmost important points in a landscape painting and without it there would not be much of a painting as it was the source of light. Like his rainbows he seems to have become obsessed with the painting of sky and would very often do sketches os studies several time a day National Gallery of Australia

Returning to one of my obsessions which is the coast. I never tire of doing a coastel scene and even though it might appear to be the same there are sutle differences. This one is on a card and I scanned it. It is still in its cellophane bag. People do like originale woks of art on card and I send them to people who I know will appreciate them.
Here is one of my sketch like cards that I design. They are done with watersoluable crayons and a edding pen.
Chichester is one of my favourite haunts, the old market cross and the cathedral. The Pallant House Gallery is a excellent Gallery to visit.
greenandstone in North street is a brilliant art shop with friendly and helpfull staff.
The view on the card is my representation of the old market cross.
