Colin Connaughton, London Member Since May 2010 Artist Statement Thanks to all who elected to be 'fans'. That is very nice of you!
I am 65. I started late, or rather I started in my twenties practicing, but then I gave it up for a long time because of circumstances in my life.
I am still learning art on part-time courses and evening classes and I am studying in the Open College of the Arts in the UK.
I believe that not every work needs to be a masterpiece. I am not precious about my work. If someone likes it well enough to buy one of my images and perhaps hang it on a wall then I am pleased and grateful. My work is usually a photographed or scanned painting (by me, of course) with digital editing or enhancement of the image afterwards. The editing is mainly to correct short-comings in the photograph.
My avatar is a self-portrait I did on an evening class. It's better looking than a photo would be, so I use it.
