    Richard thankyou for those kind words .

    Funny thing is you have mentioned a point Marmite touched on yesterday.

    Whenever you approach a subject to paint a lot of people ( me included ) find it equally difficult as to what to leave out , as to put in so to speak.

    You say you wish you could paint ? Well in Thailand you can buy some very inexpensive water colour paper nice and cheap , small A5 sizecwill do you nicely and a really cheap set of watercolour tube paint plus a couple of brushes .

    Take a look at any of your excellent photos , through very near closed eyes , just open your eyes , paint away!

    You might well be suprised , if you do please post it into either here or the artwork thread , more the merrier.

    I like it when Nige says you can pick up some nice cheap watercolours, brushes, acrylics , oils, acrylic and an anvil in Thailand and maybe you might surprise yourself and be the new Van Gogh, instead of the spastic with banana fingers you were at school

    Well you never know mate .

    I well remember being given huge sheets of sugar paper to paint on plus a huge horrible bristle brush a pot of water and powder paint.

    We was told to paint the whole sheet of paper dont leave any white paper showing , it was with dire results.

    I remember seeing some brilliant artwork from one of the Krays , he discovered he could paint whilst inside , and I reckon with a bit of encouragement others might suprise themseles.

    Painting is a great hobby , no matter the result , its theraputic , your no bother to other people , it whiles away the hours , especially out here in village boredomville , where I see the same foreigners as I cycle round midday onwards sitting drinking everyday through the sheer boredom of it .

    Happy painting , looking forward to what turns up today.

    Nice quick art Nigel
    your work is getting better as the days pass,
    reminds me of the stuff at Urban Sketchers website
    like this lady who recently visited Georgetown too

    Urban Sketchers: Sketching in Penang

    it's an interesting website, maybe was recommended at TD before ,
    there's even entries from Bangkok

    I mistakenly thought the title thread was 'Peeing through the paintbrush' so a visit to the opticians I believe may be in order.

    Great work as usual Nigel. It may not be too complimentary to call you the Rolf Harris of the northern hemisphere at this particular moment in time but I hope you know what I mean.

    Can't green you atm sadly

    Yes Willy , but only very lightly about a blunt 2B will do the job nicely ,, no details for me only the main frame guide , everything else goes in live , you cannot repair watercolour mistakes , so it keeps it exciting , and bloody frustrating !

    Yep. You've got an artist's eye for seeing that and then reducing to simplicity that masks the depth of the vision. Looking at your pic I can hear the call to prayer, the busy shoppers, feel the oppressive tropical heat and smell garlic and chillies cooking amonst a general hubbub of background noises....

    yet the photo is very ordinary.

    I've done a few abstracts in oil and other stuff, if I can work out how to upload them as photo's I might inflict them on you.

    Cheers

    Can do Bob , but this is just quick sketch time , full paintings take time and planning.

    Tbh I have no problem painting figures , cars , vehicles etc as in my painting thread , but this is really about the buildings of the area , just as quick as I can .

    I have managed 3 today , mabe tommorow I will spend a bit of time on a vehicle / figure painting , trouble is it wont be in watercolour as I have no masking fluid so it will be in acrylic or pastel.

    Will try my best

    That looks like brick work, but it's just the texture of the paper, is it not?
