At long last we have sunshine and oh what sumptous autumn light with beautiful receding mists.
I walk everyday and love just snapping away with my camara. I have no interest in producing a good photograph but instead I do it simply for my own pleasure and as a reference point for my work. When I get home, I’ll have a nice cup of coffee, get my photos on my laptop and have one quick look through. Sometimes i will go straight to the studio and paint what has inspired me from memory. Other times, there will be some frustrating reason why I can’t get straight to work. Then I panic I will loose the feeling and memory of whatever has inspired me. But, luckily what seems to happen is that gradually, some sort of image will keep repeating itself in my mind’s eye. So when I do get to paint, all I have to do is tap into that and off I go.
