Painting on other materials and painting from life…

I usually paint with acrylic paints on paper, but here are some paintings on other materials; on the walls in 2 different bedrooms, and a portrait done on a leather handbag too. While staying in Ireland with my dog Sabby recently I have also been practising more life-drawing, painting an apple and pair which I will give to my granny (Nana) and some kitchen objects (a brown sugar jar, glass and mug). It’s interesting learning to paint the different materials and textures; and since there’s no way of correcting mistakes when sketching with paint, it’s a very different thought process. But, as they say, “Life is the art of drawing without an eraser,” so there is masses to learn :-D)!!
