Saturday … Fish?

September 6, 2014

Well! it has been a good week; I have much to be grateful for.  My ‘day off was a joy’ especially as I found time to have my nails painted.  Monday evening, I began [an] oil painting.  The previous lesson I spent by the Thames making preliminary sketches that could be used for future works.  

I began to think about fish and how they might appear on paper, as they were undoubtedly, unseen lurking in the shadows.  I went on to consider how one paints a fish in ‘life.’ Unless, I put a few dead ones on a plate? The thoughts ended.

But the week progressed; almost forgetting I had a haircut. Funny, how the regular hairdressing has continued as the hair has now become almost nonexistent and even more strange the pleasant effect after also remains unchanged.

On Wednesday  I attended the opening night of the Reading Guild of Artists’ September Show, which was a wonderful event (to be discussed later) It was another first for me in many ways but mainly without or very little hair, my nicely coiffeured tuft had, sadly already gone. It was not easy, especially as my beautifully manicured nails were a little worse for wear after my oil painting lesson.  

Nonetheless it was a good week … some imagined fish while the masterpiece in oil remains in progress!

    Fish are tricky things to paint but they are a good example of shadow or light. The iridescent light their scales give off or the shadow they appear to be under the water.
