Well...I have to dip my oar in the water on this!When I first followed a link to you, via Kaz, I was smitten(is that an old-fashioned word?) by your banner. Really! I love this sort of abstraction with a nod to the early impressionists.If I had "spare cash" (what an oxymoron!) this is what I'd buy.If I want realism, I'll use the camera!No, I do not have a BA. I am a very lowly printmaker. Perhaps this the attraction?Thankyou for at least sharing it on the blog.
I think you are near enough - to get any closer it would not be you anymore, but him! You have a very distinctive, pleasing abstractiongoing here. By all means develop and be uniquely yourself! I have a watercolor signed by what looks like Trowell. The first letter being somewhat ambiguous, so it is difficult to trace the painter. It is called Bracken, Tonbridge Wells. I began painting, learning a lot about his particular style of water colour painting. I still admire it. I often wonder if he/she did any others . Fifty years later I realize it is a very good water colour!
