Waters of Fire – My First Painting

For ages now I’ve decided I wanted to try my hand at painting. When I say ages I mean years. The other week I decided enough was enough, I sat in front of a blank canvas, with paints and brushes at the ready, not really sure what to do or how to start. and tried to work out what to do with this blank canvas.

Once I started there kind of seemed to be no stopping me, it didn’t matter if I messed it up it could all be redone. After a bit of dithering and avoiding the issue I started and after a few session I finished this.

My first painting

Here I am with it – quite pleased if I’m to be truthful.

What do you think?

Painting number 2 is already in progress and there’s a few ideas and things to try. So a few more might be popping up!

  1. I love this piece, Simon. The vivid colours are so attractive to the eye, and I love the perfect reflection across the water of the moon and the man in the boat. If this is your first piece of art, I can’t wait to see what else you decide to create. You have a natural talent here. Keep going with it. 🎨😊
