Fidgety Digits

Macro beasties

About a year ago I enlisted on a one day photography course and bought myself a very lovely DSLR camera, the idea being I would head off into the wilds of Norfolk and shoot wildlife (with the camera!). With my head swimming with F-stops, aperture settings, shutter speeds and focal points I dutifully headed out, immediately forgetting it all as the first bird flew past and I realised I hadn’t taken the lens cap off. I am sure I heard the camera sigh!

The next attempt was less ambitious – limiting myself to just the macro lens and a promise to make a start on understanding shutter speed and depth of field I ventured into the garden to see what beasties lurked there. Here are some of the results – I don’t know whether any of these creatures will make it into artwork but I really enjoyed myself.

Welcome to my first blog.

My wonderful husband suggested that I should write about where I find my inspiration and about what I get up to in the studio – so here I am trying to  decide what to include in my first post.

Blank paper syndrome…

Hey, there’s an idea. My first post  – blank canvas to finished painting.

It is called ‘Cliff Top’ and is painted with acrylic on canvas. This is a piece I hauled out of the archives – painted in 2011. From now on I will try to record my new pieces in stages and post them here.
