Hello, This is my new blog.
I am launching the Slo-Art movement.
My art takes weeks sometimes months to create a picture that I am happy with. I know I am not alone.
I cannot categorise my art as landscape, still life, nature or portrait as it is all things. If it is beautiful, complex and interesting, the it shouts 'Paint me!...slowly'.
Having tried to 'loosen up' or try quick washes, spatters and all manner of techniques, I am constantly drawn back to adding detail. Not to fuss. To make the picture work.
If you would like to join the Slo-Art movement, let me know. I am on Facebook as Butterfly Gallery.
This is my latest Slo-Art piece, a cabbage. A Savoy. I am about 5 weeks into this project and it has a long way to go.
