“The purpose of art is to wash the dust of daily life off our souls”. Pablo Picasso
During the current COVID-19 crisis that wash has never been more necessary!
In late March, with the lockdown in full swing, holidays and travel were on hold. I started doing a series of illustrations and paintings for my ‘wish we were here’ postcards every week. Taking suggestions from people for their favourite locations or places they wanted to go to. It was a great way to learn how to paint and draw using the iPad and Adobe’s new Fresco software, which is a fabulous freehand programme designed especially for artists and designers who want to draw or paint professionally as a digital file.
These paintings can be drawn as large poster sizes then easily scaled down in photoshop to be shared across my social media. The response was great, and hopefully it brightened up peoples weeks before we could even think about travel again.
