Paint 🎨

Paint

proud little toddler, parades his masterpiece

as mum and dad peruse the aftermath

in consideration, there really is more colour on the paper and

not the wall, now scattered in the maestros colours

together they smile…as the soapy water will be out after bedtime

Stained Glass Window

Salford 18th September

Poem borrowed from my page at Allpoetry.com

A tale a bit crafty, a bit religious, but all by me

Artwork created at Craft Sessions at Brain & Spinal Injury Charity in Salford.

 

 

As the Sun comes up,

its light shines through

the panels of coloured glass

angling the now coloured light

painting a picture,

of scenes on a floor

And as the sun shines,

through that brightly coloured window

reds cast with yellows

and greens cast with blues

as molten lead holds on tightly,

keeping the picture alive

Priceless

Salford 3rd September 2017

Priceless

its interesting the way things are valued

DSC_0008_1

I’ve returned to this pic i took at the local art gallery, currently displaying some pieces from the Pilkington factory, once of Salford, now St. Helens.

Of course , every item has its price tag.  There is a replacement value for Insurance purposes….initial cost of production….blah blah.

The artist will want their recognition of course, the irony ? Their work’s rises upon death – thanks to some VERY Shrewd investors.

But the cost to replace the artwork – is priceless – for it would take a great deal of time, skill and blood sweat and tears to replace the artwork behind the glass panel.  And once the artisan has passed, you could copy his/her work…but it would never match the original….it would be a pale imitation

drop it….and it might get its value back….buried and recovered decades later….

So, with that in mind – here’s a pic of a local northern landmark from a local artist (you might know him, you’re reading his stuff!!!) – lets call it £10 for a print

Emulating the greats

Homage

Salford , 30th August 2017

Sat by the great stretch of Ontario,

Aware of the place i was in

Lowry’s backyard, I

Found myself a bench facing

Out onto this great stretch of

Royal waterway, in sight of Rileys Flat and began to

Draw a scene in simple pencil – one the great man would appreciate

Colours with the letter B

In response to

Cees Fun Foto Challenge

 

Cerulean (2)

A Blue was used called Cerulean to create the watercolor on this post, it was added neat to create the sky and then watered down to create a light blue for the sea.

Jamtarts

Berry Red was applied in this picture of two jam tarts.  I like the way it brought out the colour of the Raspberry Tart but also the Shadow on the Lemon Curd Tart

Midnight Salford

Another Blue was applied to bring out the colour of the night sky in this shot of a set of Lamps in front of a waterside hotel.  Midnight blue was applied after the shot was taken to bring out some of the lighter colours, such as the light on the waters reflection.

A Berry Bush in the Enchanted Garden at the Brain and Spinal Injury Center in Salford, i’ve put this on here because of its red-purple “Blackberries” and that kind of classes it as a blue!

Building Blocks, at the Cabin, BASIC Clicks. (p) BFK 2016

 

It begins simply enough,

a simple bucket of bricks

stacked up from top to bottom

till at last – they topple

oh what fun!

 

The next thing you know

you’re building a wall

with stuff from the sea

and occasionally it falls

oh what fun

 

 

 

 

Close ups and Action Effects

DSC02669.JPGBrain and Spinal Injury Centre, Salford

28th July 2017

Today at basic we’ve been carrying on creating action shots from scenes from magazines and books, using props such as toy figures and cars.

The resulting shots taken produced some rather abstract results,

“The Wave” was created from the picture of a horse – i like it as it reminds me of the sea coming in.
