Patrice

Felt pen and watercolour on paper, 15x15cm: Another small sketch using this felt-pen and watercolour combination of drawing and painting where the orange felt-tip is softer than a black ink line would be and I find a very strange thing happening - sometimes the watercolour merges with the ink and sometimes it repels, for example see how watercolour applied over the black ink strokes in the hair and dress flow together, yet the background blue which was painted close to the hair jumps back in fright! This all makes for a very lively and dangerous image (and I like a bit of danger!) as I often don't know how it will turn out. I'm pleased with this one though - I even signed it!

I think I should like Kandinsky but somehow I don't. I much prefer the German Expressionists like Emil Nolde, Alexei von Jawlensky and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. These are probably the artists who influence me most along with Egon Schiele and also Chiam Soutine, but I've got to say I mostly try to follow my own nose!
How about you Daro? Apart from rock bands, which painters speak loudest to you?
Cheers
