Drawing of a girl from stock profile at Pholab

Positioned looking east or west, you

Really only get a portion

of the person you’re looking at

filling in the details

is down, not to art or photography, but a

little thing , the old masters called conversation

expect the character you see develop from there

Monochrome II

Ordsall Park, Salford in Monochrome (Image: Brian F Kirkham)

#Octpowrimo #Black #Cyw #Grey #Greyscale

A rainbow of colour bled dry

leaving more than fifty shades of grey

Night and day coming together

replacing colour with something a bit more definite

Life

Windows

With each new morning, and an opening of curtains

Is a brand new picture for your eyes to view

Note the trees and the flowers and

Doves and pigeons in the sky above

Of course, this isn’t a painting – it’s real life

While you are watching out of your window

Something else is taking place, right here, right now

Ballerinas

Salford 12th September 2019

Ballerinas : Painting by Inky using Painter Essentials 6


They woke up one spring morning,
at the light of the sun
Bobbing around in a gentle breeze
their dancing – just begun

Over the long grass and daisies they dropped
as their coloured dresses flipped and flopped
and as they danced round in the wind
the daisies waited for the breeze to recind

Duetting with the dandelions
as their seed just flew away
wondering who – apart from the wind
that they would like to play

Pink and purple parading in pairs
above a daisy covered shower
among the blades of fresh green grass
a wonderful coloured flower

Cees Fun Foto Challenge – Colour of Choice

12th February 2019

12th February 2019

Take your pick…colours of the rainbow await

Red, Green, Yellow, Gold and Blue (if you can get it)

no need for CD-R pens, the computer has done the marking for you

and its much neater than a scribble

so instead of you flipping the CD for a title

you know from the pic you took – its on the Disc!

Glasswork

Painnt_Creation_2017-08-04_122745.jpg

Each piece carefully crafted

laid out and fixed into place

creating a picture for the eye

sometimes you have to take a step back

but as you do the pieces of the jigsaw come in

sharp in focus

Lost

]

#Lost #Fog #Picture #Disappeared #Vanished

they went for a wonder

through a familiar place

when the fog lifted later

of explorers – no trace

 

The local constabulary

puzzled like all

to Scotland Yard

they made a call

 

The dogs let loose

as the yards crack squad

examined each footprint

the missing had trod

 

but like their colleagues – at the end of the day

the inspector concluded – they’d been whisked away

with no more evidence – he said “Call off the dogs….

these poor souls have been taken by the fog!”

Concentration

Salford 12th June 2018

Cognitive act

of great effort

noting and transferring the idea and vision

carefully to canvas using colourful media

equal care given to the objects around the main subject

not forgetting the sun or the sky

taking attention to each shade of blue transferred

reality is – there’s plenty of them

as they’re placed around the brilliant red shape of the sail

the picture begins to form on the canvas

in the end – its a picture the painter can be proud of

of course, it’s taken considerable time and attention to detail

not forgetting an awful lot of patience.

Corridor

What lies behind the corridors

tween power and learning ?

a path to who knows where ?

questions are asked in the buildings on the east

while questions are answered in the building to the west

fancy seeing what lies beyond the lights?

Stained Glass Window

Salford 18th September

Poem borrowed from my page at Allpoetry.com

A tale a bit crafty, a bit religious, but all by me

Artwork created at Craft Sessions at Brain & Spinal Injury Charity in Salford.

As the Sun comes up,

its light shines through

the panels of coloured glass

angling the now coloured light

painting a picture,

of scenes on a floor

And as the sun shines,

through that brightly coloured window

reds cast with yellows

and greens cast with blues

as molten lead holds on tightly,

keeping the picture alive
