Scoot, thank you so much for your very kind comments on my artwork - they are so appreciated.

John, would love to see your work. I agree about the Panny, my D40 Nikon had to have time spent altering settings and pp but the panny has very little to do and it is quick with no lenses to change, lol.
Thanks also for your very kind comments too but show my your artwork. Oh and I cannot live on my artwork as I don't sell many at all. its a big market.

Hello Eysha,
unfortunately I have never taken many photo's of my paintings, which I regret because when you sell a painting you sell a bit of yourself do you not ?.
Any way here are some I have got ,the little boy is one of my grandsons who was jumping the waves in Cornwall. The poppy one I painted for a friend who loves poppies,what I did was, I took quite a few close ups of individual flowers, then I rearranged the ones I liked into this collage in photoshop, then I drew it freehand to give it a painterly look, I made up the grasses.
I don't trace or square up my paintings because I like the painterly look, however I broke this self imposed rule once with these spitfire paintings , one of them I squared up, after I had painted it I didn't like it, so I painted a free hand version, see if you can guess which one is which.
I went to an airshow and took a lot of photo's of various planes from ground level but because the planes bank when they turn you can get them at all different angles. I made up the back grounds.I found the Khaki camouflage colour difficult to mix and planes like ships are not easy for me to draw.
The squared one is the one showing the frame. Spitfire paintings and horse paintings sell well imho.
Seems strange putting paintings on a photo forum but there is a connection because a lot of my paintings relate to photography.For some reason the beach boy pic has not come through at my normal size.??It looks a bit washed out.

Thanks very much rudimaes,
the problem nowadays is that representational art is not very much in vogue.
I took some of my paintings to a newly opened art gallery, they looked at them and said "very nice but pure traditional watercolours are not selling very well , this is what we want more of", he took me into his gallery and showed me his best selling artists work.It was a rough outline of a nude woman grey on white ,painted with an inch and half brush at around 6 ft high, it must have taken the artist at least ten minutes to paint it.
I suppose I could have given it a go but no thanks I'm not that desperate. Another gallery said to me "come back when your dead"
To me painting's a great hobby like my photography.

I don't really like this kind of paintings. It's like taking a blurred photo and say this great art.

I wonder about modern art/painting ,I think there's more than a touch of "the emporers new clothes" involved and what if music was the same, you could play loads of dud notes and be called a great musician lol !!.

Who knows. Some people might like this kind of music (or noise ), like there are people, who give a fortune for a painting that even a small child can make.
