I have noticed that I paint larger works more often now to what I have done in the past. Because I want these paintings to succeed, I find they tend to sap my energy when I look for perfection.

For a bit of fun I decided to paint some small / little paintings. The objects I paint will be sight size rather than miniature though once I get used to the small format in oils I may occasionally scale down what I see and paint small landscapes.

Like I said it is all about fun so don’t expect perfection.

Planning for the future

There are future plans for this blog but for now I am testing this new Beta Blogger posting before transferring my main blog over. There are still some known issues for beta Blogger that I would like to see resolved before doing so. Head over to the known issues and have a look.

So far I love how easy it is to use. The idea of add and arrange page elements is fantastic.

What does this mean?

I can click on an element that has links, image or even text and drag to a different spot on the page to improve the flow of my space.

What I like I can change the template layout and only need to change my colours to what I want. None of my links or page elements are lost by the template change over.

My first painting to be posted here is a postcard size watercolour, which was painted at an earlier time.
