012 - NORTH SEATON HOTEL, ASHINGTON - DAVE EDWARDS - POSTER PAINTS - 1967 by 


FEATURED BY THE SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION GROUP – 27th May 2011

FEATURED BY THE PAINTERS UNIVERSE GROUP – 30th May 2011

PLEASE NOTE – THIS IS NOT A RECENT PAINTING

Okay … excuse me please … I’m having a little nostalgia trip :)

I did this picture when I was seventeen, using those powdered poster paints the schools let us use.

Forty-one years ago! Time flies.

I gave up art shortly after that and it was another six years before I started drawing again. Up to 1980 I drew another 23 pictures. Following that I drew on average one picture a month until 1999 and then I stopped drawing for two years and started again in 2002 and have been drawing and painting since then.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

  • I didn’t think it was good and I gave up art for six years. Now I like it more than i did.

  • I forgot to mention … we were all made to sit on a wall and draw this outside the class.

    IF IT HAD A GREEN SWIRLY SKY YOU COULD PASS THIS OFF AS A VAN GOGH ON EBAY…. I’LL GO YOU HALVES!!!

  • You are the second person this month to mention Van Gogh regarding my paintings … now where did I put that ear?

    Your style was already starting…it is funny how we do “art”
    and then come back again and again to almost full time.
    green sky is good idea!

    I can see a Van Gogh influence in the simplicity and uniform colour. An interesting and early one from you, Dave. I wish I had started before 47!

  • Strictly speaking, I started when I was 28 (1978), because from 1968 -1978 I did only six drawings. Even after that I only averaged one painting every two months. By 2005 I had upped my output of paintings to one a month. This month I did a staggering (well, for me anyway) nine coloured pencil pictures. By the way, don’t worry that you didn’t start till 47 … a friend of mine started when he was seventy and went on to win competitions.
