Photo Editing – Rotate, Crop and Resize

One of the things I have learnt since becoming involved with the aAc website is the difficulty faced by many artists have in submitting images of a suitable size and format for the website. On a personal level I have always used Photoshop, which is invaluable for printing purposes, but is a bit heavyweight for the images that I want to upload for websites, not to mention the cost and learning curv...

A Painting A Day – An Experiment

The Experiment Recently (May 2017) I have started  “A painting A Day”. The reason for my starting a painting each day was because I always felt I should be practising and sketching  and I don’t like sketching, I like painting. I like a paint brush in my hand not a pencil. However everyday I felt I should be doing something if I wanted to be an artist and then tended not to do anything. Added...

Winsor & Newton Liquin Mediums

Pablo Picasso Goat’s Skull, Bottle and Candle 1952

Goat’s Skull, Candle and Bottle is one of a series of works inspired by the theme of war and in particular the execution of a Greek Communist hero and resistance fighter. It is painted in oil on canvas, in agrisaille palette, worked in Picasso’s so-called stained glass manner, whereby every form is enclosed in a dark outline. The simplicity of the tonal range belies Picasso’s conscious choice of t...
