Strokes Of Genius 12– The Best Of Drawing
Opportunities for paintings can present themselves at unexpected times. My plan on that particularly sunny day was to take a photo of my husband playing his guitar for his social media profile.
Cue the sunlight and cheery music; the stage was perfectly set. But as I entered the room with my camera his expression was so pensive. What was up with that? Shouldn’t strumming ‘You Are My Sunshine’ on such a day present a smile upon his face?.
I could instantly see that a change in purpose was in order. As artists we’re always looking for contrasts: usually in light, shapes, textures or colours. This though was a contrast of the senses; and I was keen to capture it. Seizing the moment I stole a few unobtrusive shots which would later be used for my painting ‘Contemplation’.
