One of my jobs is to visit an old woman who has dementia and is now in a rest home. She is a famous painter and was an art teacher. I take her out for a coffee, go for a walk or we paint together. Having someone to paint with motivates her and she often gives me advice.
I did this painting at the rest home, with no sketches or plan as I am only there for two hours per visit.
My other job is I do accounts for a community non-profit organisation.
My friend holds a craft/art night occasionally. She usually gives us prompts or themes. The prompt of this painting was to do a sketch from a magazine. I used water-color for the face and glued which I glued to a collage background.
Don’t you think she looks like Stevie Nick’s? from the band Fleetwood Mac.
I thought I’d give intuitive painting a go, which is where you draw random shapes with no plan. I did this a few days after one of my chickens had died and I was very upset. So this painting ended up with a few egg shapes.
