This week I went to Patchings Art Festival.
One of the talks that excited me most was about colour.
I have used Derwent Colouring pencils in my work for years.
They have just launched a new collection.
The talk was based on this.
Landscape art was the reference point.
Colour changes in its appearance as it recedes into the distance.
The artist must try to capture this.
Vivid hues occur in the foreground , while muted colour appear in the distance.
Derwent tackles this with the range of colours it produces.
Sunlight will affect the appearance of shades of colour.
Light and dark must also form part of the story.
Malcolm Cudmore gave an excellent talk.
This is my new interest.
It is filling my life with positive thoughts.
I just wish i had not waited so long to take this new direction in my life.
