Amsterdam 1905 by Leonid Afremov by Leonidafremov
Visiting Amsterdam with my grandmother was a cherished experience and this painting brought back a lot of fond memories. Blues and orangey-reds are beautiful together and as the main colours of this painting they balance and work together wonderfully, bringing out and contrasting the warmth from inside the shops and the cold of the rainy evening. The effect of working with the palette knife has given lovely shape and character to the paint strokes without distracting from the eye too much. In fact, especially in the sky and lamp light, it appears like the mottled effect that occurs when water lands on the lens of a camera. The only reason the originality mark is lower is because there are many city pieces out there using vivid colours such as these (which can easily look garish), but that in no way detracts from the beauty and impact of this particular painting.
I have created a facebook page (only just today so there is nothing on it yet and it's a bit scruffy).


So feel free to follow me!

I will eventually post works in progress and sketches on there. I will also be creating a youtube account soon as I have decided to record my drawings and create some more in depth tutorials from now on (this will be slower as I haven't got all the tech stuff sorted yet). 

My recent splurge of arty motivation is mostly due to the pestering of friends and family who have been saying for years that I should make more of my art and get out there more. So, I have started thinking more seriously about my art and it's development. It's led me to beginning a new personal project of drawings, the first of which is almost finished and will be on here and my facebook, and possibly available as a print.

I want to get more serious about my drawing and eventually turn it into a semi-profitable hobby that I can spend more time on...although I'm not delusional about my current abilities compared to a lot of the incredible artists out there! 

But you have to start somewhere :) 

Hope you're all having a lovely summer and thank you for the kind words and encouragement I get from everyone - it means a lot.
