I’ve had an artistic block for a while and have decided to loosen up a little with the oil paints. I’ve a tendency to bog myself down in detail which can make a painting take a long time to finish. Meanwhile, a backlog of ideas never get to the canvas. So here is my attempt at loosening up and trying to remembering that this painting lark is supposed to be fun.

Vicky live and works in Edinburgh as a full-time artist. She lives with her husband, two daughters, two cats and a big old hound

    Great work!!! Just so you know you are not alone, following an illness I had artistic block for three months in 2010. I am just getting back in the swing of things. My Redbubble friends are very encouraging.

  • I’ve found my RB friends very encouraging too. (and thankyou!)

    Hi Vix, Happy New Year. Love this, he looks like he has seen a ghost. My cat often peers into space and I am sure he DOES see something we can’t. I totally understand the attraction of loosen up, as painting can sometimes turn into a technical exercise that takes milleniums and its frustrating when there are so many ideas just waiting to spill out. A great start to your catty New Year ~ Anni ;)

  • Hi Anni, Almost finished the next cat one. I’m enjoying the speed, I’ve just got to up the quality a bit. thanx for your encouraging words…and I hope you have a creative new year. vix
