WINTER TREES – WATERCOLOUR SKETCH

p10203811

I was watching TV and there was an artist Norman Ackroyd painting some watercolours of woods in winter. I loved the greyness of these images along with the bare trees and after the programme I made up an image, just using washes of greys blues and purples just to see where it went.

Norman Ackroyd  is  a printer and I think he coordinated this year’s Royal Academy summer show. Some time ago there was  an infrequent series on the tele called “What do Artists do all Day” – a title which amused me. He was featured in it and it showed him  working on an etching of seabirds encircling a far flung Scottish Island. Needless to say some of his day was spent in a hostelry whilst he was waiting for things to develop. It’s a hard life, but someone has to do it.

  1. I like this one very much, Graham. I have seen most of the episodes, and I thought the Ackroyd one was one of the best in what was an interesting series. Well worth a look, especially if it can provide this kind of inspiration! 🙂

    • Thanks Rebecca. I thought Ackroyd’s was best as it followed a process, which included a pint or two. Many of the others looked at projects, though I did like the one about the artist painting the ceiling of the theatre.
