Nebulae

12 December, 2018

Painting with poster paints or water colours is still very theraputic for me.
I started drawing and painting again whilst undergoing cancer and chemo treatment in 2014/15. Nowadays I paint or draw once a week (except in the summer months when I am too busy!) and this helps me to ground myself and focus my mind on something creative.
I call this painting Nebulae because I was writing poetry for my Arturina cycle (as yet unpublished) when I created this picture. What do you think it looks like?

Fire

When you’ve been through cancer and chemotherapy, colour becomes incredibly important to you.
I carried on writing all through my illness in 2014/15 but I often was too tired to write much. So I started drawing and painting again. I am not a good artist, my skills lie in words. But I enjoyed creating many abstract pictures – I hope you get some enjoyment out of this one!

I was also inspired by Elisa Choi Ang’s workshops over at SkillShare. Sign up and try them out for yourself!
