- Rate my piccy's
A few years back I was living in a town house in the city and driving up to Northumberland, to build my wooden house. I am not sure what caused it, god knows I was busy enough, but maybe because I could only see a very small amount of the sky where I was living, and then the massive sky’s and views of Northumberland, I started to paint, never done it before ( felt a bit like Richard Dreyfuss in Close Encounters), because I was building the wooden house at the time I painted them on wooden boards that I made up with stuff lying around.
They look Ok on the walls in the house and I have done a few big ones on canvass since ( which I used some more interesting techniques)
I have kinda stopped doing it now, but have a few boards sitting in the garage, so I thought a thread on here might either get me going at it again or stop me dead in the water.
Anybody else done something similar ? Post your stuff here !
Here are some of them.
I call them landlines.

bigG.. I have done a lot more doors and walls than paintings 🙂
I really like your Dad’s painting, to me he is trying to capture the same feeling I have for being outside ( but doing it better)
I found a pic of another one that is in my brothers house, a bit different from the others.

Utilising the grain of the wood to mirror the lines in the sand and sea, using ‘found’ objects from the environment whence they came? Turner beckons my friend!
Seriously though, the more vague the paint, and the more prominent the underlying material, the better I like them. One and three work very well – the triptych less so – it looks more…. obviously manipulated?Posted 5 years agorewskiMember
My dad does a bit of artwork
massive under statement, your dad is very talented. OP I’m sure the photos don’t do these justice, number two is lovely I think the more subtle colours work better with the wood grain, I’m a big fan of sax impey’s sea paintings, you should check them out, he was at sea in a huge storm for hours, bit like turner.

Bunnyhop… Thanks and not really thought about selling them.
rewski.. Checked out Sax Impeys website he is trueley talented.
Anyhoo I guess the the thread has worked and I will do a couple more, first for at least a year. 😀
Would still like to see what you or friends and family have done.Posted 5 years ago
