I read a quote this week by Jane Freeman – “My paintings are my camera on the world”. I am a keen photographer as you know, but I’ve never tried painting. So I decided to explore my inner artist by taking lessons from a master. He likes to paint en plein air so we set up his easel and palette in a peaceful spot in his garden.
I watched as he blended colours and deftly applied them to the canvas. Inspiration just seemed to flow from the brush.
I was amazed to see how quickly his imaginings became reality and simply astounded when I saw the completed masterpiece.
Do you think it’s a good likeness?
