Thanks every one for your lovely comments, CN most of my ideas come from Pinterest, I haven't got the imagination to think of things I know I can paint and draw but I have to copy the ideas. I also have to do animals , pets ect from photos if they move about I can't do it. X

Wow this is very clever. It has a bit of 'Dali' about it.

Linda I have the same problem, I can draw something if I have a flat version of it to use as an aid, but cant seem to draw things from life so well. I can draw little cartoon characters too but I have a hard time making the same character and changing their position. I envy artists that can take something they have just drawn and then just draw a side angle or something of it.

Lindylo I looked up Dali and his art work is a bit way out, but one of his paintings "Christ of Saint John of the cross". Is one of my favourite as he looks down from above on to the cross and his perspective is very different. This is the one.

That's one of my favourite paintings too Linda. He is dismissed as being too wacky but his paintings have great depth. There is one that from a distance is a portrait of Abraham Lincoln but close up it is something completely different. I just love his work.

I went to see a Dali exhibition in London a few years ago and I was particularly taken with his sketches, he could convey so much with just a few lines, very clever.

I have seen the one on the I pad of Lincoln, from far away, and the close up is a nude of his wife from the back, very interesting.

I am glad you are both in to seeing artists work, my favourite artist is Alfonso mucha his 1920 posters of women , and the artist of the pre rafelite movement . Orphelia laying in the river, most of them are of the women of 1900. All floaty and beautiful.

Which artists are your favourite?

I like Mucha too. He has a good eye for detail and I love this romantic era of painting. We often go to a hotel in Lille and the owners wife has painted copies of his four seasons and they adorn the breakfast room. Very impressive.

I like a fair mix of artists from Van Gogh/Monet/Sisley to Da Vinci/Caravaggio/Michaelangelo. I love to wander around art galleries especially if we are abroad as you get the opportunity to see canvasses you can't see here in the UK.
