I’ve spoken before about how Twitter is a never-ending source of inspiration and ideas for me. It’s such an accessible format to use, enables me to connect with creative people across the globe and I can control how relevant my twitter feed is. One evening, a wonderful tweet caught my imagination and energized me to paint it. Here is my attempt – a picture paints 140 characters.
Did you spot the dragon? Part of the tweet was “the hills of Wales were a dragons back”.
In other news, work on my forthcoming series of 5 paintings continues and almost all the research and thumbnails are complete. Now it’s down to larger scale mock ups of the paintings, practising some portraits of the people I intend to feature and checking they work as a series and individually. More on that soon and hopefully a sneak preview in the next blog post. Stay tuned!
