i have been expressing myself in paint since befor i could walk having a love hate relationship with art ever since and long layoffs the last lasted for 7 years i felt i had nothing to say i had lost my voice well ive found it again and im back painting with more confidence than ever part of the problem has always been that i am allso a musician songwriter and producer and am always split between the two but now i am managing to combine both disaplins i work in acrylics because i enjoy both the water colour propertys and the ability to use them as oils also because of the scale of my work and the detail if i were to use oils it would take a year to do one painting i work usually on plywood i enjoy the texture of the grain and as a rule between 3ft by 4ft or 4ft by 5ft my work varies between wildlife studdys and what i call dreamscapes i have know wish to create work that looks like a photograph but i am heavily influenced by photography but my works are most definitely paintings i put much detail into my paintings and on my dreamscapes i take great liberty with composition and perspective but still follow the rules of composition the only boundarys in life are our own imaginations and in my art i expand my imagination to its fullest then with the advent of the digital world exploding on the scene i embraced it as simply another artform and now i enjoy working in mixed media all my work can be purchased in its origional form by contacting me at donalddean51@yahoo.co.uk . The other side of my life is my music so if youve a mind to you can drop by my music site at
